Amplified sound at new Olbrich Park shelter

After receiving a number of questions and concerns about recent amplified music at the new park shelter at Olbrich Park, I reached out to Parks and asked that they attend the May 11 Eastmorland Community Association meeting to provide information and hear neighbor concerns. That meeting will be held on Zoom, beginning at 7pm and I encourage anyone interested in this issue to attend. I will share more details including a meeting link in a future update.

COVID vaccinations

There is good availability for COVID vaccinations. DHS has transitioned to using Vaccine Finder.
