The town of Flower Mound is encouraging local homeowners to make sure the sidewalks in front of their homes are clear, because kids will soon begin using them to walk to and from school.

This is a good time to make sure your sidewalk is pedestrian-friendly and code-compliant, according to a news release from the town. Trees should be trimmed for an eight foot clearance over the sidewalk and 14 feet over streets. Sidewalks should be clear of encroaching vegetation, such as bushes, as well as mud build-up and other trash or debris.

    How about fixing the streets in neighborhoods that have become sinkholes and cracked open? City has patched areas of the street all around this spot but not yet fixed this particular spot. I know everything can’t be done everywhere immediately but why not fix the bigger issues first rather than just leaving them to get worse while fixing everything around them? This is around 5125 Colonial Drive.

    Flower Mound should be pedestrian friendly by maintaining their sidewalks which are on their property and not the homeowners.

    Can we get the city to spruce-up the sidewalk in front of the Flower Mound Mound? All the no-mowed zone in front of the Mound fence does is make the area look over grown with weeds. There is plenty of room for the wild flowers to grow behind the Mound fence.
