Snow Street Parking

Snow accumulation is forecast Sunday evening throughout next week. An important lesson learned last February is that city snow plows will avoid plowing with cars parked on the street, ESPECIALLY on the hills. So PLEASE, park cars in your garage or driveway while the snow is falling. Since this email list only gets to about half the neighborhood residents, please feel free to share this information with your neighbors.

Storm Drains

In the recent It’s Your City newspaper, you might have seen the article about keeping storm drains clear. Keeping leaves and debris raked away from the grates helps prevent flooding in the neighborhood. All neighbors can help keep the drains clear, not just the residents immediately next to the drains. Thank You!!!

“Free” Items

Please don’t leave “Free” items on the curb. The recent occurrences have proven that if you don’t want it, nobody else does either. Please be responsible and take your own discarded items to Goodwill or the dump.

For the BBQ left on 157TH Avenue, if there is a generous neighbor willing to take it to the dump, the HCCA will reimburse your dump fee.

Yard Waste Cleanup

One of the benefits of HCCA membership is use of the yard waste dumpsters that HCCA rents to help neighbors with yard waste cleanup. This year, two dumpsters will be out from Saturday April 27 through Sunday May 5 (two full weekends). Please put ONLY yard waste in these dumpsters from HCCA member homes. If non-yard waste is dumped, the entire load is contaminated and has to be taken to the dump at four times the cost. The dumpsters will be located on SE 48TH Drive just downhill from the 4-way stop (traditional location), and 157TH Avenue SE (up the hill from Hillside School).
