What can I do to help out in the Lemon Grove community?
The easiest way to contribute is by taking care of your own property and by picking up three pieces of trash a day as you are out and about in the community regardless of where you are. A friendly demeanor and being neighborly will encourage others to do the same. The City and local non-profits are always looking for volunteers and we’d love to hear your ideas for improving our community as well.
What should I do to do add value to my home?Studies show, that based on cost, wood decks and patio covers, a fresh coat of paint, reducing clutter, and renovated landscape are the easiest and cheapest ways to add to the property value to your home and business.
Will I need to do a public street dedication or public street improvements as a part my building or planning permit application?Possibly, in accordance with Chapter 12.10, Building Permits valued over $15,000 may require public street dedication towards the ultimate right-of-way width in accordance with the General Plan Roadway Circulation Plan Figure M-1.
