10.20.050. Obstructing traffic control or regulatory devices

            No person owning, possessing, or controlling property, or charged with the maintenance of property, shall place, cause, or allow to be placed, or maintain any structure or vegetation which obstructs the view of any traffic regulatory signs or any traffic control devices of any kind.

            In applying the above proscription, the following minimum standards shall apply:

            (1)        No tree shall be located or maintained within the thirty feet (30') in front of any such sign or device.

            (2)        If any such sign or device is within the extended "clear view" triangle, as set forth in Title 19 of this Code, any shrubbery or other vegetation that is within the thirty feet (30') in front of any such sign or device, and within the aforementioned triangle, shall be maintained so as not to exceed two feet (2') in height above the finished grade.

            (3)        If any such sign or device is outside the aforementioned triangle, any shrubbery or other vegetation within the thirty feet (30') restricted area, shall be maintained so as not to exceed four feet (4') in height above the finished grade.

            (4)        If any such sign or device is within the aforementioned triangle, any shrubbery or other vegetation that is within the thirty feet (30') restricted area, yet is outside said triangle, shall be maintained so as not to exceed four feet (4') in height above the finished grade.

            Nothing herein shall supersede or otherwise repeal any more restrictive requirements and if any conflict occurs between this and any other Section, the more strict requirement shall apply.

            If any condition proscribed above exists and is a traffic hazard, the responsible person(s) shall immediately remedy the condition.  Failure to do so is a violation and each day said condition exists is a separate offense.  If said person(s) fails to do so or cannot be notified, the City then may proceed to bring the condition into compliance with this Code.
