New Construction
Under the provisions of the Town Charter, the town may construct sidewalks on town property along any public way or part thereof. The town's Sidewalk Policy details the decision process to be followed by the town in considering requests for the construction of new sidewalks.

Overgrown Vegetation

For Streets: All streets must have a minimum vertical clearance of 14 feet from curb edge to curb edge.

In addition to the minimum standards above, the Town may require additional pruning or removal of vegetation on public or private property to eliminate other public safety hazards. To report an overgrown vegetation violation, please contact the Town Office at townoffice@townofchevychase.org.
