The City of Ocean Shores is notifying residents of the annual roadside herbicide treatment. They’ve contracted with Woodland Resources Services, Inc for the weather-dependent work, which should begin the week of May 20th. The objective of the annual application is to preserve a vegetation-free strip of gravel shoulder adjacent to the pavement consistent with the WSDOT Integrated Roadside Vegetation Management Plan.

In 2018, the City initiated a process for provide property owners the opportunity to maintain the City right of way in lieu of herbicide application. If you would prefer to maintain the City right of way as an alternative to having herbicide placed at the edge of pavement, please complete the form posted at or contact John Wagner at (360) 289-2824 to obtain a copy of the agreement.

Completed agreement forms can be emailed to [email protected] or delivered to the Permit Office located at 801 Minard Avenue NW. Forms must be received by noon on May 17, 2019 to ensure staff has enough time to place markings at the subject property.
