  • Office of Neighborhood Coordination: Effective Monday, April 3, 2017, the Office of Neighborhood Coordination (ONC) will no longer be housed with the Planning Department.

Weed Season Is Here

Spring is here and that means that a battle has begun in yards all across town. Because of that, we need your help to defeat stubborn weeds!

In an effort to keep our city beautiful, and meet your responsibilities as an Albuquerque property owner, please check your property for weeds frequently throughout the Spring and Summer months. Be sure to remove any weeds with a height or width of more than 4" from the following areas:

  • In the front, rear and side yards of your property
  • From the property line all the way to the curb, including the sidewalk. If you don't have a curb adjacent to your property, then the area 10' outside of your property line
  • From your property line to the middle of the alley adjacent to the property

Learn more about nuisance weed removal and which plants are considered weeds by the ordinance.
