Trash Cans

Trash cans cannot be visible from the road.  Many of our neighbors are electing to purchase a partition to block visibility of their cans from the road, but you can also put them inside your garage, plant a hedge, or place the cans in your backyard.  

All fences and any structure having an accessory use must have  a permit which can obtained from Bloomfield Township. The SBHIA is only notified if the homeowner is applying for a variance from Bloomfield Township.  All variances must be approved by the SBHIA Board of Directors.

Dog Ordinance - (Ordinance #423)
Dogs are not permitted to run at large off owner’s property. Dogs must be on a leash at all times when off the owner’s property, even if the owner is present.  It is unlawful to permit a dog to deposit fecal matter other than on owner’s property, unless immediately collected.  Violators of this Dog Ordinance are subject to: $500 fine, plus costs and/or imprisonment not exceeding 90 days.  Residents may anonymously report violators to Animal Control of the Police Department at 248.433.7757.

Only licensed operational passenger vehicles are permitted to be parked in a driveway overnight per Bloomfield Township Regulation #1508.  Vehicles are not to be parked on the grass.  Commercial and recreational vehicles are not to be parked overnight in a driveway.

Oakland County Tree Removal Policy

If a tree is diseased or dead, a County Arborist will inspect the tree. They will then measure from the center of the road to identify the right-of-way (Hillsdale is 20 feet, Marlborough is 25 feet, etc.). If any part of the tree trunk is in the right-of-way, the County will accept responsibility and have the tree pruned or removed.

The Township will send out their crews only if a tree has fallen into the street and needs immediate removal.​
