Blocking Public Right of Way
Do not leave basketball hoops, skateboard ramps, or
other sporting equipment in public streets or in locations that
block sidewalks. They constitute traffic and pedestrian
hazards and prevent emergency services from responding
in a timely manner.
Parking and Street Cleaning
Do not park on the side of streets with posted no
parking signs. Emergency services cannot reach homes if
both sides of the streets are blocked.
Clean Water Services sweeps the streets, but that
cannot do so if cars are parked on the wrong side of the
street or the trees are not trimmed to a height of 12
CC&Rs require each owner to maintain the exterior of
your home, which
protects the property values. Take a moment to
look around your house and see what needs attention.
Standard lot homeowners are responsible for the
maintenance of sidewalks and park strip landscape
Carriage Collection homeowners are responsible for
the maintenance of sidewalks but not for park strip
landscape (trees) or front or side yards that face a
street. The maintenance of carriage lot yards (both
front and side if facing a street) including the park
strip and its landscape (both front and sides if facing
a street) are the responsibility of the HOA.
If you want to remove a park strip tree as a standard
lot homeowner you need to fill out a city application
and get their approval. Applications are available at
the Banks City Hall, during normal business hours, or
From the City of Banks, select City Services
> Permits, License & Forms > Parks > Tree Removal &
Replacement Application. Print the form and
submit it to the City for review.
Carriage owners cannot remove trees from the
park strip or yards (both front and sides if facing a
street) without the approval of the Architectural
Control Committee and the City of Banks.
