Welcome/About

Welcome to the Village of Newburgh Heights Housing and Building Department.

In 2000, Newburgh Heights established a non-residential Building Department which has fostered the growth to a full-time professional Housing and Building Department that serves as an important partner to property owners, business owners and all residents who call Newburgh Heights home. We support current and new development and efforts to help keep the Village’s housing stock healthy and growing. We are committed to guiding and helping our resident’s live well in Newburgh Heights whether they are a first-time home owner to a long-time renter.

Announcements

Salvage Sale

Over the last two years, the Housing & Building Department has been saving historical and architectural items from demolished properties. These items will be for sale in the near future; hopefully for an in-person event in early fall. If you are interested in donating an item for the sale, or have something of historical significance, we would love to see the item and discuss how you can be involved. Contact the Housing & Building Department, 216-641-4654.

 

Spring Lawn Care

Spring will be here before you know it. Soon, it will be time to plan the garden and to get ready for the warmer months ahead. And, who knows? Maybe we’ll get to go out and socialize again! Spring projects can really get overwhelming so it is a good time to make sure your equipment will be ready or to even start looking for lawn care services. The Housing & Building Department doesn’t currently keep a list of lawn care services or contractors. Basic lawn care doesn’t require a permit or registered contractor. However, if you are planning on major excavation or digging you will want to let us know.

Get Your Spring Home Maintenance Checklist

Grass, Shrubbery, Trees, Weeds & Litter: Property owners are required to maintain a grass lawn in Newburgh Heights and to ensure that it is cut regularly. It is imperative that grass clippings not make it into the streets or sidewalks. Clippings have a negative effect on our sewer system if they wash down into the drains. Grass clippings are not permitted to remain in the street, sidewalk, or driveways aprons. Please make sure they are cleaned up every time you mow and dispose of them properly. Lawns, trees, shrubbery, weeds or litter that are not maintained may receive a citation. If you receive a door knocker or warning letter you have five (5) days to fix the landscaping issue. If the correction is not made, the Village may abate the nuisance and charge property owners $250. Only one (1) letter is sent out per season. Nuisances may be abated without a warning.

If you are having an issue regarding property maintenance contact the Housing and Building Department so that we can work with you and possibly connect you to helpful resources.
