Street Tree and Sidewalk Repair Guidelines

Revised Street Tree Ordinance
As of June 24, 2010 the revised Street Tree Ordinance is in effect. Information pertaining to this ordinance is listed in the Fremont Municipal Code, under Title VI Public Works and Public Utilities, Maintenance of Street Trees and Sidewalks. For many years the City has maintained street trees and repaired the damage caused by them to residential sidewalks as a service to the adjoining property owner. Due to budget and staffing reductions these services will no longer be provided, and the responsibility for maintaining street trees and sidewalks will be returned to the property owners.
