Snow Removal Reminders From the City of Flagstaff website
Winter Parking Ordinance
There is NO PARKING on city streets or alleyways from midnight to 7:00 a.m. The City of Flagstaff’s Winter Parking Ordinance goes into effect on November 1st and will remain in effect to April 1st. This parking restriction is enforced whether it is snowing or not.This ordinance allows our Streets Section crews to thoroughly plow streets for your safe travel and it also aids street sweepers in the removal of cinders following a snowstorm.The Flagstaff Police Department does enforce the ordinance. If you are parked in violation of the ordinance and it’s not snowing, you will receive a ticket. If you are parked in violation of the ordinance and it’s snowing, you are likely to have your vehicle towed away as well as receiving a citation.
Property owners and occupants are responsible for keeping the sidewalks adjacent to their property free and clear of any accumulation of snow, ice, or other obstruction; in any event no later than 24 hours after the accumulation. The ordinance also prohibits moving snow or ice onto city streets or alleys. Shoveling snow onto streets after plowing compounds ice buildup. Changes in the Safe Sidewalk Ordinance include owners/occupants being served a Notice of Violation 1 time per season with unsafe sidewalks being abated at their cost. Please be considerate of your customers/neighbors...clear off your sidewalk following a snowstorm, deposit of snow or ice from street clearing efforts or other accumulations.
Appliances, hazardous waste, construction materials and tires are not picked up as bulk trash and require special arrangements to be made (reference the Schedule above).
Routine inspections take place between March and October typically within the first ten days of the month, along with random inspections at the discretion of the Board of Directors
Below are a few helpful tips to consider to avoid getting a “nasty gram” from the HOA. LANDLORDS: please be sure to pass this information and the new Enforcement Policy (attached) along to your tenants.
Pine Needles – Please keep yards free of pine needles and pine cones. If you have an approved “Native Landscaping” plan, pine needle/cones accumulation must be kept to a minimum. This is a fire safety matter!
Weeds – All graveled landscaped areas must be free of vegetation (this includes the area between the curb and sidewalk). If you use weed spray, you must rake up the dead weeds. Any “natural” approved areas must be free of invasive weeds/grasses.
If you are an out of town owner and would like assistance in finding a vendor to perform yard work at your property, please email email@example.com
Vehicle Parking – Vehicles must be parked in the garage or in the driveway, NOT on any landscaping or graveled side yards.
Trailer Parking – Trailers may only be ON THE LOT for loading and unloading or otherwise approved by the HOA. If you know you’re going to have your trailer on your lot in preparation for a trip, please send a quick email to firstname.lastname@example.org to let the HOA know. If the HOA does not know about it, you will be sent a violation letter if the trailer is seen on the lot during any inspection.
Storage & Trash
Misc. Storage – All personal items need to be kept in the garage or in a fenced back yard out of sight. Some items seen on inspections include, yard tools, pallets, buckets, play toys, bulk trash items…if you think it should be put away, it probably should.
Bulk Trash – Do not place items curbside sooner than the Sunday before the scheduled pick up week (https://ponderosatrailshoa.com/news-updates).
Refuse Container Storage – Trash and Recycle cans must be stored out of view when positioned in line with an entrance to the home (entry/garage). If you have a gate to the back yard, cans need to be stored behind the fence.
NOTE: If you have received a home/yard maintenance letter in the past and completed the work, please be sure that you have notified the HOA of the work completion. All “open violations” will be subject to the new Enforcement Policy. To avoid frustrations /unnecessary letters from the HOA, be sure that you have formally closed out any past/current violations by emailing email@example.com.
Have a special circumstance? No problem, email firstname.lastname@example.org and let the HOA know the situation; such as, refuse container in need of repair waiting on the curb for City services, loading/unloading a trailer for a trip, house project requiring a trailer or material to be left out front (all exterior projects must be approved).
