There are many entrances into our City. A large number of them are State roadways while others are City roadways. Many of these road rights-of-way have received minimal maintenance in years past for various reasons. Research shows that economic growth hinges on the perceptions held about a community by prospective businesses and industries looking to relocate. These perceptions are based largely on the first impressions formed while travelling through a town or city. Community Improvement Services was selected to manage the Enhanced Right-of-Way Maintenance Program with the goal of establishing elevated, regular maintenance on the rights-of-way along City entranceways, corridors and thoroughfares. So far, the Program has taken over maintenance of 33 road rights-of-way and drainage easements throughout the City by mowing, edging and weed eating; removing trash, illegal signs, and dead trees; and trimming trees. The Program has also helped beautify a few main roads by providing funding to install native plants that use less water and embellish medians.
Thanks to the Enhanced Right-of-Way Maintenance Program, Denton residents and visitors are greeted by clean, manicured roads and entrance corridors, all of which help Denton grow by improving first impressions and increasing property values. If you have any questions or concerns about maintenance along a City entryway or thoroughfare, please call Senior Officer Josh Mullen at (940) 349-7455
