Company is Coming!!!
The City of Newport has proclaimed the month of May for cleaning up our streets, sidewalks, and neighborhoods for the summer season.
Please join your neighbors, friends, or local merchants, working together on clean up projects on the streets and sidewalks where you live and work. The city may be able to provide some guidance or assistance with your project on a limited basis, we will do the best we can to help local merchant or neighborhood associations. Thank you for helping us keep the City of Newport safe and clean!

Chapter 8.10 Nuisances, Chapter 9.25 Intersection Safety, Chapter 9.70 Sidewalks
Property owners and renters along any street in the city have the responsibility to maintain the sidewalks in front of their property out to the curb. This includes repairing trip hazards greater than ¾ of an inch high, and replacing areas where the surface is broken up into small pieces. Vegetation, debris, litter, dirt, or any other condition that limits the width and safety of the sidewalk, should be removed. There should be 8 feet of vertical clearance straight above the sidewalk, free from vegetation, fences, walls, or structures. A clear vision area needs to be maintained on intersection corners and driveway access points: Any vegetation, fences, walls, or structures within 20 feet of the corner or access point should be no higher than 36 inches. The clear vision area includes the area within a triangle from the corner of an intersection and 20 feet back in each direction.
