Currently, the City does not offer any incentives for homeowners to remove their lawn. Over the years the City adopted and administered many rebate programs such as the low flow toilet/faucet/shower head rebate program (1990-2007), the high efficiency washing machine rebate program (2000-2011), the high efficiency sprinkler rebate program (2007-2010), the weather based irrigation control rebate program (2007-2010), and the low-flow toilet replacement and water efficient washing machine rebate programs (2015-2017). Each of these programs were available city-wide and highly utilized by the community. As participation dwindled, these programs were eliminated and we have turned our focus to water audit and leak detection programs.
While we don’t have a turf removal program in place at this time, it doesn't mean we won’t in the future. We acknowledge that we are often affected by drought and have taken many measures to conserve water. For instance, most of the City’s large parks as well as many large private development lawns are irrigated with recycled water.
