Resident's Guidelines:


Snow Removal:


Please make sure to move all vehicles for the snow removal to ensure the roadways can be as clear and safe as possible. Below are the requirements from the city ordinance.


During the winter it is up to each property owner to clear public sidewalks of snow and ice. Rochester City Ordinance 72.02 requires property owners with a public sidewalk to remove snow and ice within 24-hours after a snowfall. This is necessary to ensure the safety of people using the sidewalks during the winter. Please follow these DOs and DON'Ts:


  • DO:

    • Remove snow and ice from sidewalks and intersection handicap ramps abutting your property within 24-hours of snowfall ending.

    • Clear snow the width of the sidewalk. Remember that sidewalks are used by strollers and wheelchairs in the winter.

    • Remove ice to bare pavement or make as level as possible and treat with sand, sawdust or similar material.

    • Clear any snow that may be blocking a handicapped ramp, fire hydrant or catch basin.


  • DON'T:

    • Shovel or plow snow into the street: Violators caught shoveling snow from private property into the street will be fined.

    • Overexert yourself while shoveling: Excessive strain from the cold and hard labor may cause heart attacks.



Street Parking:


Rochester City Ordinances: Street Parking Prohibited for more than 24 hours for any reason.

Police will ticket vehicles and if not removed they will be impounded.


City Ordinance 134.21. Vehicles for Sale. No person shall place any vehicle on a street or alley to display the same for sale or exchange. A vehicle shall be deemed to be displayed in

violation of this section when found standing upon a street or alley, and bearing a sign or other marking indicating that it is for sale or exchange.


City Ordinance 134.25. Restrictions on Primary Traffic Streets; Two-Way Streets. On two-way streets where the width of the roadway or the distance between the curbs is less than 30

feet, no person shall park any vehicle at any time except for the purpose of loading or unloading commodities, and such stops shall not be for a longer period of time than necessary to accomplish such purpose.


On two-way streets where the width of the roadway or the distance between the curbs is 30 feet or more but less than 36 feet, parking is prohibited on one side of such street and

no person shall park any vehicle on that side of such street on which the council has prohibited parking, except for the purpose of loading and unloading commodities, and such

stops shall not be for a longer period of time than necessary to accomplish such purpose.



Pet Control:


Obviously, it is required that you collect all animal feces that your pets deposit.


The City ordinance states that you must have control of your pet. Either by leash or command.

Our guidelines are that you are not to allow your pets to wander on others property unless you have their permission.


Our contracted lawn maintenance company will not mow your property if you have not removed your Pet feces.


Owner responsibility:


Gutters and downspouts are owner’s responsibility

  • purpose to protect foundation

  • must match and can only extend to the edge of landscaping rock area adjacent to your property.


Put trash bins back same day; if windy try to take out as late as possible, place rock on top if possible to weigh down.


Landscaping:


All landscaping changes/additions must go through landscaping committee for approval


Helpful hints:

  • Small trees with limited leaves.

  • Privacy fences must be white, adjacent to concrete slab, must rest on rock/edging, and not on grass.

  • Nothing permanent on grass


If items are not attended to in a timely manner or no attempt to resolve any repair is made, Hawk Ridge Association will take care of the Owner’s responsibility. The Homeowner will then be assessed the cost.
