Edgecumbe Drive has been paved! Although there is still a considerable amount of work to be done, the nature of that work should not affect residents to the degree that the road demolition and re-building did. Because of this, Public Works will no longer host monthly informational meetings about the project.
Please address any remaining concerns or questions to Dave Longtin (firstname.lastname@example.org, 747-1883). Thank you, everyone, for your patience this spring, summer and fall.
