All uses of the city's property requires permission. We are your backyard neighbor and should be treated the same as the next-door neighbor. We do not allow the removal of trees of any size, bushes, shrubs, or any other material without a permit. A formal landscape plan may be required if extensive work is planned. We would prefer that the property be left as a natural buffer to help protect the reservoir water quality. We understand that you may want a view of the water and will work with you. Contact us at (757) 441-5678 if you have any questions or concerns.
