This time of the summer, before school starts, is a good time to make sure your sidewalks are pedestrian-friendly and code-compliant, according to a Facebook post by the town of Flower Mound.
Residents should check the tree limbs that hang near the street and make sure there is a vertical clearance of at least eight feet over sidewalks and at least 14 feet over streets. Also, keep sidewalks clear of vegetation, such as bushes, and free of mud build-up, trash or other debris.
“By following a few simple sidewalk spruce-up tips, you’re helping kids travel to and from school safely, while upholding Flower Mound property standards,” the town’s Facebook post said.
