I would like to better understand what the city's responsibilities are regarding neighborhood entrances, such as mowing, edging, water, sprinklers, etc. I know many HOA landscape, but what is the minimum expectation for what the city of Frisco will assist?
I was recently told that the homeowner on the corner adjacent to the entrance has responsibility for said entrance. That does not seem right to me and I'm trying to understand exactly where the boundaries lie for the corner homeowner, the HOA (if any) and the city.
Thanks for any clarification you can provide.

Most entrance areas to single family residential developments are platted lots, and as noted on the plat they are to be maintained by the HOA. I had a call recently about some trees that were lining the entrance to a residential neighborhood, and the trees were clearly in the ROW and not in a separate common lot. Since they were in the ROW, unless there is a public safety issue, the City’s policy is to require the adjacent Homeowner to maintain the trees and landscape areas in the ROW that is adjacent to their lot.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
