Westminster City Council members are considering an ongoing maintenance plan for property along Hoover Street, after a petition from more than 200 residents and numerous complaints about the blighted appearance of the corridor, which is overgrown with trees, trash and other debris.

The city has already done a clean-up and has been patrolling the area twice a day to remove trash, shopping carts and tripping hazards. The plan would completely remove the trees and brush along the street, declare the area a “problem oriented policing” project and require staff to produce weekly progress reports, according to the staff report.

The maintenance plan coincides with recently approved plans to create a biking and walking trail along Hoover Street by November 2015.

The public meeting begins Wednesday at 7 p.m. To read the full council agenda, click here.
