The Norwich Code of Ordinances requires property owners to maintain sidewalks in front or on the side of their property. The owner, occupant or any person having the care of any building or lot of land bordering any street, square, or public place in the city where there is a sidewalk shall cause to be removed therefrom all snow and sleet within 12 hours after the same shall have fallen, been deposited or found, or within six hours after sunrise when the same shall have occurred in the nighttime.
Overgrown tree limbs, shrubs, and bushes that block the passage on sidewalks or city streets are violations of the code.
If property owners fail to maintain trees or shrubs on their property, the Department of Public Works will take action to trim or remove vegetation at the property owner's expense.
