Citizen's Guide to Code Compliance

BEING A GOOD NEIGHBOR

Neighborhoods and structures in the Borough of Lindenwold require proper maintenance to stay in good condition as they age. Maintaining good neighborhoods is the cooperation of individual property owners and tenants. The Borough of Lindenwold Mayor and Council have adopted a standard Housing Code and other Ordinances, which create minimum standards for the bettennent of our neighborhoods. These standards protect surrounding property owners and tenants from having property values negatively affected by substandard conditions.

PROPERTY MAINTENANCE:

Keep your buildings substantial1y free of dirt, stains, rust, mold and mildew

Maintain brick, stone, stucco, spray painted surfaces so as to not reflect inadequate maintenance or deterioration. Sidewalks, driveways, fences, railings, roofs, exterior wall & roof must be kept in good condition.

YARD MAINTENANCE:

Mow the lawn so that grass, weeds, or other vegetation is 6 inches or less in height on developed property. Mow to the edge of any paved roadway or street, including street curb line.

Trees over the public right-of-way and sidewalks must be trimmed up to a height of 10 ft.

Trees over the street must be trimmed to the height of 14 ft. above street surface.

Vehicles cannot be parked on front lawns.

JUNK, TRASH, RUBBISH, AND ABANDONED ITEMS:

Discarded items that are allowed to accumulate that are valueless, or have only nominal or salvage value and are abandoned or left unprotected from the elements on public or residential property are prohibited.

RECREATIONAL EQUIPMENT:

Boats, trailers, motor homes, campers, etc. may be parked or stored in a rear or side yard, but not in the front yard setback area.
