Offers poster
The Eastmorland Neighborhood Meet-up was a great success this weekend. It was a great chance for neighbors to meet each other and share needs and offers.

Last Week 

Starkweather Drive & Garver Path project update

An update from city staff on the Starkweather Dr and Garver Path project timeline: "The contractor is planning to start the street work early to mid July. In the contract we gave them 60 days to do the work, so the street wasn't torn up all spring/summer/fall. The two creek bridges should be complete by Nov 1, 2021, the wetland bridge next summer July 1, 2022 (although this bridge will also be set this fall, we need the winter for the path leading up to it to settle before we pave it)."
