 Mental Notes

 Fall Leaf Pickup, Rounds 2 and 3

If you missed the town’s first round of leaf pickups earlier this month, you have 2 more chances this month to have your bagged autumn leaves hauled away  — see the schedule and rules for pickup, here.

 Your Input Requested

Make sure your opinions are considered by committees as they form their recommendations for the town by completing these brief online surveys:

  • Pedestrian Safety Survey — Do you ever wish there were sidewalks or more lighting in your neighborhood, on your walk to the train or where your kids play? Have you wondered why there’s not an intersection/ or pedestrian signage at a nearby intersection? Do you think speeding through residential neighborhoods is a problem in your area?
  • Weed Beach Expansion Survey — Here’s your chance to let the Darien Pedestrian Infrastructure Advisory Committee know as they prepare recommendations for the town.
