Roadside Vegetation Control
Backpack Application
The County of Mariposa, Public Works Department, maintains approximately 600 miles of public roads and Zone of Benefit Roads, including actively managing vegetation control utilizing chemical means.

On occasion, requests are received from local property owners to establish a "no-spray" zone on road frontage bordering their property. Property owners interested in filing an opt-out/no spray agreement, must complete and submit a Roadside Vegetation Control Agreement to the Public Works Department in order to be considered for the opt-out option.

The Roadside Vegetation Control Agreement and Information Sheet are located HERE. The documents are also available at the Public Works office.
