We would appreciate it if Christmas decorations are not put out until the middle of December, but most of the flower regulations are waived during the Christmas season. Decorations will be removed by the City on January 19th. If you want to save yours, you need to remove them on or before the 18th of January.
Ground level flowers placed in a standard flower container can be set out any time after May 15th. Flowers just set on the ground can not be put out before the Thursday before Memorial Day.
