OUR CURRENT PROJECTS

SEASONAL WAYS YOU CAN HELP

There are several things you can do to help the City protect the environment.

Winter:

Please follow the winter parking regulations.

Please don’t shovel or blow snow into the streets.  


Spring-summer-fall:

Please don’t sweep or rake leaves, sand, excess fertilizer and lawn chemicals or grass clippings into the streets.

Please keep yard waste out of the buffer zones of ravines, wetlands and lakes. Check out the "Adopt-A-Drain" Program!


All seasons: Please pick up after your dog

ADOPT-A-RAINGARDEN

Raingardens catch runoff from a rooftop, driveway or street and soak it into the ground before it can reach a storm sewer or nearby waterway. Raingardens also beautify our local communities and provide habitat for pollinators. Adopting a raingarden is a great way to build community, keep your neighborhood looking spiffy, protect your local lakes and rivers, and get fresh air and exercise!
