A survey of all vacant properties will begin on April 1. Weed Abatement Posting notices will be mailed and posted on the property throughout the spring season. A re-inspection will be conducted in May.
The deadline for mowing, discing and/or cleaning properties is generally June 1. This date is used loosely because so much depends on the weather during April and May. If late spring rains occur, then properties may need to be mowed or disced several times in order to comply with city standards.
Sometimes a property is cleaned after a property has been initially surveyed. Due to the size of the city, it takes an entire month to survey all vacant lots within the city limits. If you have any doubts about the status of your property, please call the Planning and Development Department at 559-846-9386.
Yes, although individual neighborhoods are not generally surveyed, if complaints are received they will be handled on a case-by-case basis. Remember, the primary condition that will be considered is whether the property poses a fire hazard.
At times, the records are not always up to date. The Weed Abatement Posting Notice is sent to the last known owner on Fresno County's assessment roll. Please let the North Central Fire District know immediately that you are no longer the owner, by calling 559-275-5531. Any new owner information is appreciated.
