While many neighbors are enjoying the new roundabout, some are also monitoring problems that stem from Grayland Avenue being partly open for parking. The people who are still using Grayland have abused the privilege by leaving litter and dangerously driving over part of the closed, roundabout section. The City’s Department of Public Works put up some black plastic fencing to try to discourage the misbehavior, but now people are just driving around it. Some neighbors are saying they predicted this and are re-iterating their calls for this section of Grayland Avenue’s street to be removed and fully closed as soon as possible.
This Wednesday is a “Red Wednesday”, which means trash and recycling pickup. Ideally, rolling recycling containers are stored and deployed in the back alleys along with trash cans. Please make sure you pick up containers after pickup tomorrow night.
If you have not done so already, don’t forget to sign up for your Recycling Perks.

Please volunteer for the neighborhood litter pick up this Saturday.
In recycling news, big corporations make big promises, but how many actually keep them? It often takes government for and by people to make real change.
