Registration is now open to owner-occupied properties and renters with landlord consent; not business or City-owned greenspace. The registration process will allow administrative staff and the Weed or Assistant Weed Inspector to review who is in compliance with the ordinance and resolution. If they receive a complaint about a lawn that is not participating, staff will reach out to the property owner to encourage registration. If the property owner does not register for “No Mow May,” the City will move forward with City Code enforcement actions. On June 1, the Weed or Assistant Weed Inspector will allow a 2-week grace period for participating properties to come into compliance before taking any enforcement action. Full enforcement will return on June 15, 2023.
Residents who opt to participate in “No Mow May” would be exempt from Section 16-39(c) of the Excelsior City Code, specifically that “Any weeds or grasses, whether noxious as defined by law or not, growing upon any lot or parcel of land outside the traveled portion of any street or alley within the corporate limits of this municipality to a greater height than eight inches or which have gone or are about to go to seed are a nuisance” from May 1, 2023 to June 15, 2023, while continuing to enforce the Minnesota State Mandate regarding the management of noxious weeds.
