The City cleans a little under one half of the catch basins annually on a set schedule. If a catch basin is full or is not draining after a rain event it may have been covered with leaves or road debris that needs to be removed from the grate. It is greatly appreciated if citizens rake the material off the catch basin into the street. If the catch basin is not blocked and is not draining, please call the Storm Section at (503) 526-2568.
General creek maintenance is the responsibility of the abutting property owners. The City has minimal maintenance areas on the creeks.
The City maintains a list of Approved Street Trees or you may contact Urban Forestry at 503-526-2237 or 503-526-2206.
In residential areas, the street trees should be trimmed to not less than 12 feet over the street and not less than 8 feet over the sidewalk so that none of the branches block any part of the sidewalk or the street. On other streets such as major arterials and collectors, the street trees should be trimmed to not less than 14 feet over the street and not less than 10 feet over the sidewalk. (Measure straight up from the inside of the curb on the street side and straight up from the sidewalk side.) For more information, please refer to the City of Beaverton Tree Planting and Maintenance Policy or contact Urban Forestry at 503-526-2237 or 503-526-2206.
No, insect and disease control for trees located within the right-of-way is the responsibility of each property owner. For more information and recommendations for treatments, contact Urban Forestry at 503-526-2237 or 503-526-2206.
