10.44.130  Obstructions at intersections--visibility.
   Sight distance and safety are more important than aesthetics. Therefore, fencing, landscaping and planting can be allowed but must be maintained so as to provide for good visibility and safety at all city intersections. Planting and landscaping may be allowed in the public right-of-way of the street. At intersections landscaping and planting cannot be allowed which obstruct a driver's visibility for observing on-coming vehicles and pedestrians. Within the public right-of-way, the city may remove, trim, or cut back such obstructions to provide for safety at intersections, and may require the property owner to reimburse the city for the cost of such work.
