This ordinance was established to assist property owners in maintaining 100 feet of space around their home to help prevent fires. This ordinance only applies to properties with a dwelling (occupied or unoccupied) on the property who are unable to achieve 100 feet of defensible space due to vegetative growth on bordering parcels that do not have a dwelling or basic required services like electricity.
