As spring is well under away, and summer just around the corner, the Office of the Portsmouth City Manager would like to extend a friendly reminder to City residents
about ordinance 941.20 Weeds, Grass, Vines, Brush, and Shrubbery; Maintenance. According to the ordinance, grass and weeds cannot grow to a height greater
than six (6) inches and vines, brush, or shrubbery must be kept in such a manner as to not create a nuisance or health and safety concern for the public. Unkempt properties
will likely result in a visit from the City Code Enforcement Officer−but we’d like to avoid that and work together to keep our beautiful City clean! So, please, join us in
keeping Portsmouth a safe, well-kept, and aesthetically pleasing community.
Have a great summer and thank you!
Sam Sutherland, Interim City Manager
