Annual Encroachment Permits are now available to those residents who wish to maintain a fuel break behind their backyard fence on Regional Parks property. These annual permits are free of charge and will allow residents to string-trim grass and weeds for up to 50 feet beyond their private property line.
The permit is only for cutting non-woody vegetation, such as grasses and weeds, and does not allow cutting or removing woody plants, such as trees, shrubs, or vines. Acceptable methods include string trimming or hand tool removal. Lawn mowers, which could spark a fire, or herbicides are not permitted.
To see specific permit conditions, read the pdf document.
You may request a permit by providing your name, address, and contact information to Regional Parks at parksinfo@SacCounty.NET.
