Hello Neighbors!

Spring is in full swing and that means it is time to get outside and give our yards and outdoor spaces some care and attention.

It has been very windy lately, and that means a lot of debris is flying around and landing in our yards. Additionally, this is the time for grass, shrubs and bushes to start growing for the season, and it is important to keep them maintained. Keeping neighborhoods safe and beautiful is the responsibility of all Canton residents, especially home and property owners. A well-kept property makes the home more inviting, enhances the neighborhood and increases property values. Canton urges all property owners to incorporate these guidelines into their routine to keep the community looking good for all to enjoy.

• Clean up after your pets. Pet waste can contain harmful bacteria. When left on sidewalks or yards, it washes into storm drains or roadside ditches polluting our creeks and rivers. Also, please dispose of your pets’ waste in your own trash.

• Keep your property free of debris and clutter to deter pests and rodents from nesting.

• Offer to help neighbors who may not have the ability to maintain their outdoor space.

Be a good neighbor to your fellow homeowners, as well as to the environment in Canton. Everyone’s contribution can make a difference!
