Red Deer’s back lanes to be graded

Red Deer residents are reminded to ensure back lanes are clear for grading.

Red Deer residents are reminded to ensure back lanes are clear for grading.

Roads superintendent Jim Chase said the crews face challenges due to vehicles, piles of soil, flower beds and garbage bins stored in back lanes.

He said clearing the back lane will ensure a safe and efficient grading operation.

The grading program got underway in April and will continue until late October. The city is responsible for maintaining 235 km of back lanes in Red Deer.

Crews will cycle through neighborhoods each week and will avoids areas on scheduled garbage pickup days.

If a resident’s fence is built on their property line, then the property behind the fence is considered city property. The city allows 30 cm or one foot to transition their landscaping outside their fence.

According to the Use of Streets Bylaw, no person shall place, pile or store any material or equipment on city property without a permit.
