Clear the Sidewalk Day is Saturday, August 7th

The City of Decatur requests all property owners prune their trees and shrubs to clear the sidewalks and streets.

With school beginning this week, clear sidewalks will make it safer for students to walk safely to school, and make it safer for all pedestrians to walk (or roll) in front of your property without having to go into the street. Pruning your tree will also help keep them from being damaged by trucks and cars.

For information on how to prune, contact the City Arborist,

Don’t let your sidewalk look like these:

Clean the Street for Little Feet



Decatur City Schools are back in session and thousands of children will be walking and biking to school. Please make sure the sidewalk in front of your property is cleared of debris and that the bushes are cut back for a clear sight line. Make sure cars can see the children approaching cross streets on their walk or bike ride to school.

Be sure to drive slowly and be on the lookout for both pedestrians and cyclists.
