Community Pride Days

Community Pride Days Postponed until 2021

In the interest of public and staff safety during this pandemic, City staff has made the difficult decision to postpone Community Pride Days until next year.

You may, however, bring branches collected from the recent storm on September 19 & 20 from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at 1225 Catamount Dr.

Community Pride Days

The traditional weekend-long Community Pride Days event held annually in May will be postponed to the Fall. A specific date has yet to be determined and will depend on the status of the COVID-19 crisis. In the meantime, we do have some waste reduction resources for you.
