The proposed amendments would define Marijuana and establish the medical use of marijuana as a home occupation and a locational restriction on the cultivation of medical marijuana by primary caregivers.

Outdoor Service Areas

The proposed amendments would remove outdoor seating/eating area as a special land use and establish outdoor services areas as a principal use.  The proposed amendments define Accessory Outdoor Service Areas, make Accessory Outdoor Service Areas a permitted accessory use in specific zoning districts, with a zoning compliance permit and annual renewal through administrative review, and establish a set of general regulations for their operation.

Bagged Leaf/ Brush Collection

The Department of Public Works will collect bagged leaves as they chip brush (weather dependent) on January 20th. This will be the last opportunity to have leaves collected this winter. No compost bag or leaf pick-up by the City or Waste Management will occur in February or March. Waste Management will resume bagged compost pick up on Monday, April 5, 2021.

Snow Removal Reminders

During snow events, please note the following reminders:

Residents: Please clear your sidewalk of snow and ice within 48 hours of snow cessation.

Business owners: Please clear your sidewalks within 4 hours of snow cessation or by the start of your business day.
All: Please remove all cars from the street overnight. Please shovel snow onto your property – it is against City Ordinance to shovel the snow into the street or onto a neighbor’s property. We also request that you please help the fire department by making sure that fire hydrants around your home or business are cleared of snow, and are accessible and visible from the street as soon as possible after a snow storm. Every second counts in an emergency situation.
