Landscape Maintenance Program Continues

The City of Las Cruces reminds residents about the Landscape Maintenance Program which was created to promote the economic and health benefits of landscaping. City Rights of Way Medians and Parks maintenance crews are enhancing city-owned properties. They have recently trimmed trees, cut weeds and cleaned litter at the vacant, City Office Center at Lohman Avenue and Alameda Boulevard.

Meanwhile Codes Enforcement Officers are out inspecting sections of the city to make sure property owners are in compliance with the “Design Standards” ordinance. The code requires property owners to maintain landscaping in a healthy, clean trimmed, weed-free and litter-free condition. The code also requires property owners to replace dead plants with new ones or prune and trim so they do not interfere with pedestrians or vehicular traffic.

All commercial properties within the City of Las Cruces are affected by this ordinance. That includes offices, retail space, industrial and multi-residential areas. Recent rains have made it more difficult to remove weeds in a timely manner, but continued effort will ensure our community and business will be more inviting to the public. For more information about the Landscape Maintenance Program, please call Codes at 575/528-4100 or for Plant & Tree information, please call 575/541-2550
