The Town of Altavista is a great place to live, work and play. And you can help us keep it that way! Community Development is working hard to make sure that Altavista is a well-kept and attractive place that meets the standards set forth by the town’s codes. By far the vast majority of our citizens keep their property in excellent shape.
With recent rains and warmer weather, we have noticed that weeds aregrowing quickly. The town wants to remind allcitizens and business owners that any plant, grass, or other vegetation of uncontrolled growth over 12 inches high is a violation of town code. Yards that are unkept may be cut by the town or its agent, after serving notice. When that occurs, the property owner is billed for the service, along with a $75 administrative fee.
