Cleveland Avenue Clean Up

Several years ago the Fry's Spring Neighborhood Association "adopted" the stretch of Cleveland Avenue between Cherry Avenue and Jefferson Park Avenue. This Sunday, the 14th we will be meeting at 7:00 am at the bus stop at the corner of JPA and Cleveland for our annual clean up. This does not take very long and you can meet some neighbors!

Old Lynchburg Road Safety, Sidewalks and Drainage Update

From Charlottesville City engineer Tony Edwards:

I have recently confirmed with Snow’s Nursery  that they can provide the plantings at the Jones property this week. I have been looking for Larry and Janice’s phone number to let them know. It seems to be unlisted. If you would be so kind to provide it I will give them a call.

Since the well compacted bio-filter embankment has not allowed the seeding to completely take root and a future trail base will be needed in the same area the city has elected to place some of the stone base now and prevent any bare areas from eroding . The silt fence is the protective measure left in place until the stone is placed. Snow’s will also be installing this material.

The  Parks and Public Service departments have been notified  about  the questions of the kudzu management and maintenance on the city’s Bio-filter area as requested. They are currently looking into the matter.

The contract items are complete and the additional items noted above are scheduled to be completed this week.
