City offices will be closed Monday, Oct 5 due to the heavy rains. Monday's trash pickup is postponed until Wednesday.
About 50 people braved the cold to attend the Neighborhood Planning Area meeting at St. Andrew’s On-the-Sound on Jan. 22. Residents shared what they love about their neighborhoods, what they’d like to change, and their big ideas for the future of the area.
Topping the “Keep It” list were the area’s mature trees, neighborhood character and the Gary Shell Cross-City Trail. On the “Change It” list were lack of sidewalks, the need for better parking/access to the Cross-City Trail and additional water access. The “Dream It” list included a walking/bike loop around Rogersville Road, Wrightsville Avenue and Eastwood Road, more parks and preserving the density and established development patterns.
Two meetings will be held each month through April.
