Prepare for the new school year by making sure sidewalks are pedestrian-friendly, and code-compliant. This is a great time to trim all tree limbs that hang over sidewalks, allowing for a vertical clearance of at least eight feet, and at least 14 feet over streets. Also, make sure sidewalks are clear of encroaching vegetation like bushes, and free of mud build-up, and other trash or debris. By following a few simple sidewalk spruce-up tips, you’re helping kids travel to and from school safely, while upholding Flower Mound property standards.
