Sound Off: Landscaping
Can the city request or require that landscaping on the southeast corner of Ninth and Iowa streets be reduced or removed because it blocks the view of drivers attempting a right turn on red from the westbound lane of Ninth Street into the northbound lane of Iowa?
“Yes,” Megan Gilliland, the city’s communications manager, said in an emailed response. “The city has a standard related to providing appropriate sight distance at street intersections. Staff will work with the property owner to increase visibility at this intersection.”
