In response to the Frankfort City Commission’s 2017 direction to improve code enforcement and revive our neighborhoods, City staff will be continuing with a City Enhancement Program, according to City Manager Cindy Steinhauser.
The program, which was very successful in 2017, will consist of a number of elements designed to improve the safety and appearance of Frankfort neighborhoods. The program will include a sweep of Frankfort neighborhoods. The upcoming comprehensive sweep will include Planning and Code Enforcement, Public Works and the Parks Department.
During the sweep code enforcement personnel will be scanning for possible code violations. Most minor code violations will be given a courtesy notice, with some exceptions. Exceptions include repeat violators, properties with four or more violations and violations that pose imminent danger. These exceptions will receive a notice of violation.
The Public Works Department will be looking for items the City can improve to enhance neighborhoods. These items include pothole repair, street signs that need to be replaced, removed or updated, vehicles parked on rights of way that appear to be inoperable, vegetated areas in the right of way that need weed removal or mowing and curbs that need to be painted.
The Parks Department will also assist in the review by looking for street trees which need attention, limb obstruction, possible bike lane additions and the condition of City parks.
The City will conduct public meetings to give a brief presentation explaining the Neighborhood Enhancement Program. Staff will be on hand to answer questions and address concerns. Neighborhood meetings are listed below. All meetings begin at 5:30 p.m.
