Fall Loose Leaf Collection
Fall loose leaf collection is now underway for single family and townhouse owners. Place your leaves at the street curb by 7 a.m. on your regular recycling day. Note that leaves placed in alleys or mews will not be collected. The weekly collection continues through the last week of December, weather permitting. Any time during the year you can bag your leaves in biodegradable brown bags and leave them curbside with your other recyclables.

New City Park Update 
In 2013, the City acquired property along Rt. 28 that was formerly occupied by the Consumer Product Safety Commission. An ad hoc advisory committee provided concept ideas to the Mayor and City Council in 2016 and the following year a landscape architect was hired. Among the proposed features are a nature play space and tot lot, community gardens and a cycle track. There is also an existing warehouse building that was planned to be converted for multi-purpose use. At a Work Session on October 22, 2018, the Mayor and City Council discussed the difficulties with renovating the existing building, its funding, and overall timing. Several options were proposed and alternatives will be explored in the coming months. Review the history of the project here.

Thank you,
Glenn Watts
