According to the International Property Maintenance Code, which the Township adopted in 2020, weeds and grass must be less than 8 inches tall for the following areas:
  • All developed residential and commercial properties.
  • The front 25 feet of vacant residential and commercial properties.

Additionally, trees, shrubs and other vegetation must be trimmed so they do not block visibility or access to sidewalks, drives or streets.
