With spring fast approaching, Ferguson Township would like to remind residents about our Grass & Weeds Ordinance, which was recently amended in December 2021 after our most recent spring and summer.

The most significant change to the Ordinance was the increase in permitted height of managed turf grass from six inches to eight inches. Other changes to the ordinance include incorporating “Grow Zones” into the definition of “Green Infrastructure.”

Please note that this ordinance applies to the R1 Residential District (Yellow areas on the 2020 Zoning Map).
