Participating in "No Mow May"? Sign up by May 1!

The Beloit City Council has approved an ordinance change that allows for Beloit residents to participate in “No Mow May” in 2024 to help support the presence of pollinators.

In order to participate in No Mow May, the property owner must:

·       Register with the City of Beloit’s Community Development Department by May 1, 2024.

·       Display a city-issued sign in the yard to notify the community that the property is participating in the program.

·       Ensure grass and weeds do not grow longer than 12 inches.

Registration will open Monday, April 15, 2024. In-person registration and signs are available at the Community Development Department at 100 State Street, Beloit, WI. City Hall is open Monday through Friday 8 am to 4:30 pm.

No Mow May is a voluntary program for City residents. Individuals who do not register by May 1, 2024, will need to comply with the ordinance’s standards of grass and weeds to not exceed 8 inches.

Community members encouraged the City Council to create an exemption in the city’s long grasses and weeds section of the ordinance to promote this sustainability initiative. Over 250 people took a community survey on No Mow May with 73.6% in support and 26.4% against the program.
