Residents Improve Curb Appeal in Harrison

In neighborhoods throughout the City of Harrison, residents are making efforts to improve curb appeal. One of the most noticeable differences is the storage and screening of trash cans, fire pits, tools, and other items.

“We appreciate the steps residents are taking to be good neighbors,” said Mayor William Neyer. “It takes all of us working together to show Harrison is a great place to live.”

Residents may store items in their side yard as long as they are properly screened from view at the street. City Council approved an amendment requiring proper storage of these items in summer of 2019. Council also eliminated the need for permits or fees to install screens or fences under six feet in height.

Appropriate screening for trash cans, etc. includes:

  • Small, stockade-type fencing
  • White plastic fencing
  • Enclosed storage bins

Screens, fences or storage bins are not necessary if the items are placed to the rear of garage, behind fireplace ‘bump-outs’, behind air conditioning units, or behind significant landscaping. Screening is also not required for trash cans, grills, fire pits, etc. stored in rear yards.

The City’s code enforcement officer visits residences that are not in compliance with this or other ordinances. During these visits, he answers questions and works with residents to resolve any issues. The Building and Zoning Department has provided this FAQ to help residents, and additional questions can be directed to (513) 202-8494.
