An alley is a paved roadway between homes that provide access to garages. LCMA-owned alleys are not intended for vehicle thru-traffic. Parking in LCMA-owned alleys is prohibited and violators will be towed at the LCMA’s discretion. LCMA-owned alleys must be kept clear of obstructions and obstructions will be confiscated at the LCMA’s discretion at the owner’s expense. Street address numbers should be mounted on the street-facing AND alley-facing sides of homes. Alley-facing street numbers may be mounted above or beside the garage door or on the corner of the fence closest to the garage door between 4 and 10 feet from grade.
Alleys should be kept weed-free. Nothing may be stored in view of the alley – recycle bins and trash cans must be stored out of view – behind a fence or in the garage – and only put in the alley the evening before trash pickup. Construction materials, storage bins, ladders, landscaping materials and debris may be not be stored long-term in view of the alley. Any trees or plants hanging over a rear fence into the alley must be trimmed back to the fence line.
Trees may not be planted on the alley side of a rear or side fence or within a utility easement.
The LCMA does not provide snow plowing in alleys.
