Sidewalk and Tree/Shrub Inspection Program – Starting soon

Sidewalk and Tree/Shrub Inspection Program – Starting soonApr 7, 2020

Spring is here!  It is that time of year that the City of Altoona will begin its annual sidewalk and tree/shrub inspections in the very near future.  So, how does this work, you may ask.  The city has identified four (4) zones for this program; these zones are on a rotating schedule and each year one (1) zone is walked by the City to identify any defects and encroachments that are defined by Chapter 136 (Sidewalks) and Chapter 151 (Trees) of the Altoona Code of Ordinances.  In 2020 we will be focusing on Zone 1 (please see map for details of this area).  We will only be inspecting sidewalks and encroaching trees/shrubs located within this zone.  If a complaint is received regarding issues of a sidewalk condition or an encroachment of trees/shrubs located outside this particular zone we will conduct an inspection and if it is deemed there is a compliance issue than the appropriate action to bring the property within compliance will be mandated.
