Beacon Hill Civic Association to Hold Meeting About Street Sweeping Changes

The new program takes effect March 1.

After much lobbying by Beacon Hill residents the city has agreed to extend street sweeping into December and March, starting next spring, to help keep the Hill cleaner and reduce rodent food sources. 

The Beacon Hill Civic Associations has been instrumental in getting the city to expand its cleaning program and will host a meeting on Monday, Oct. 15, to let neighbors know all the details. The meeting begins at 6:30 p.m. at 74 Joy St.

Currently, street sweeping ends on Nov. 30 and begins on April 1. But in 2013 it will start on March 1 and not end until Dec. 30, meaning that applicable parking restrictions will be in place all year except for January and February. 

The civic association will work with the city to inform Beacon Hill residents of the changes and the city will install appropriate signs by March 1. 

Beacon Hill residents may sign up for sweeping schedule notifications and cancellations by e-mail on the city’s website and registering on the  NO-TOW link. These subscribers will be notified with reminders or of sweeping cancellations on the evening prior to the scheduled posted sweeping day.

The choosen few The bhca is totally insensitive to residents who have to struggle to find parking spaces. It's also stupid given the weather in december and march. I'm sure most of the officiers in the bhca can pay or have parking spots.
