Did you know? You don't need a permit to take turf out of your lawn, but the city can assist you with:
The Turf Removal Rebate program is offered for the removal of turf from the landscape and installation of city approved low-water-use landscaping. The rebate amount (up to $1500 per property) is calculated based upon the amount of turf removed and landscape installed. For more information contact Water Conservation at 480-312-5650 or visit their website .
When you move into a neighborhood with Codes, Covenants and Restrictions (CC&R's) you agree to comply with the regulations as adopted. CC&R's represent a civil contract between the property owner and the property owner's association and are legally binding on the participants. Violation of CC&R's can be penalized and fined as set out in the legal section of the regulations. It is the responsibility of the property owner, not the city, to be aware of any CC&R's as part of any proposed building modification or new construction. The city does not maintain or monitor CC&R's.
CC&R's are civil in nature and as such are not enforced by the City of Scottsdale; as an example, even in an area with public streets the city of Scottsdale will not enforce the parking restrictions from the Codes and Covenants.
My Neighborhood site provides real-time information about construction activity, development requests, building permits, code enforcement notices and crime activity.
