With more than 60 miles of improved and unimproved alleys across Irving, ongoing maintenance is imperative. While the city takes care of infrastructure and pavement repairs, residents and property owners are responsible for general upkeep of alleys, including:
- Mowing high grass and weeds in excess of 10 inches.
- Removing trash and debris.
- Trimming tree limbs and shrubbery that protrude into the alley way.
- Repairing deteriorated and dilapidated fences.
Voluntary alley maintenance compliance prevents enforcement actions such as:
- A notice of violation
- A citation
- Forced abatement
