Tonight council hears from taxpayers on New School Cost 05-23-2017
You won't find it on the council agenda for tonight, but Item 6 is a chance for comment on this new $100 Million high school. The city manager is guessing at 8 PM in council chambers taxpayers can voice their opinions. I personally think this school board will drive our property taxes through the roof and if given a chance to speak I intend to say so. Moral support would be great, we may get them to reconsider. We live next door to what I have heard is the most expensive elementary school in the state. A little sanity is in order. Hope to see you in council chambers tonight.

Save the date 05-09-2017
Hi All....as many of you know I enjoy celebrating my first day of "freedom" from school by having lunch with y'all at Cross Keys. This year I would love to do the same but have to push it back a bit as we are taking Camden to Disney World for his 5th birthday as soon as school as out. I was hoping that by putting the date early it would enable those of you who still work, like me, to make arrangements to take the afternoon off or for anyone else to keep their schedule open for an afternoon of lunch and socializing with your neighbors. I am looking at Friday June 16th. There is no need to RSVP at this point, but as we get closer I will send out another posting asking for a head count so I can make a reservation for us. Hope y'all can keep the date open!

Season's Bounty 05-09-2017
I just took a tour of Season' Bounty farm off of Rte. 42 North in Harrisonburg. It is quite an operation and they offer a csa. You can go to seasonsbountycsa@gmail.com to find more information about it. It sounds great. You can have a 1/2 share that would feed 1-2 people, or split that half share with your neighbor. They would harvest the vegetables on Wednesday morning to be picked up at the Friendly Food Co-op from 4:30 to 8:30 that afternoon and evening. The best selling point is that if you notify them about 48 hours before your pick-up that you don't want the pick-up, they will not fix a box for you and you will get credit at their farm stand at the Farmer's Market on Saturday. You can do this as many times as you need to. If you like veggies, take a look.

Mowing 04-17-2017
I asked Scott to come Tuesday versus Wednesday, so if he shows it is my doing. This alternate week April thing seems limiting to me. I think we need once a week this year.

Portal Issues 03-15-2017
I contacted the management company and told them the "roll out" of the new portal was sorely lacking. They are going to try to repackage the message and access and usage rules. My apologies They say they will try anew

Trash again tomorrow early 03-14-2017
Unexpectedly John came by to pick up trash. I told him I had advised to the contrary. He will come by again tomorrow. He said about 730 740 AM

Trash & Snow 03-13-2017
Given how this snow is coming in and leaving, I don't expect trash can be picked up tomorrow. I could not get a commitment about Tuesday pickup, if it looks all rosy I guess they will try. If not I hope they advise us. I asked them to do that and will pass on what they tell me

Summer concerts at Orkney Springs 03-05-2017
Hi neighbors, I'm writing from sunny Arizona to spread the word that Arlo Guthrie and Emmylou Harris will be performing this summer at Orkney Springs. It's always fun to carpool to Orkney Springs, bring a picnic and enjoy a concert under the summer sky. I'm guessing these concerts will sell out quickly so if you're interested, just go to the link and order your tickets:musicfest.org. The tickets go on sale April 3 at noon. We've had a terrific winter, and look forward to seeing you all when we're back home in April.

Tomorrow this may affect Heritage a great deal 01-10-2017
Below is the DAILY New Record article about MEETING 5PM tomorrow at Gilkerson City To Give Shared-Use Path Details ERIN FLYNN Daily News-Record PUBLICATION: Daily News-Record (Harrisonburg, VA) SECTION: Harrisonburg DATE: January 2, 2017 HARRISONBURG The details of an upcoming project will be unveiled to city residents next week. On Jan. 11, the Harrisonburg Public Works Department will host a meeting to give the public details of a shared-use path to be built on Garbers Church Road. During the meeting, which is scheduled for 5 to 7 p.m. at the Cecil F. Gilkerson Community Activities Center, 305 S. Dogwood Drive, attendees can learn more about the project. The shared-use path, which is expected to be completed by 2019, seeks to connect schools, parks and neighborhoods in the southwest part of the city. In the first phase, sidewalks are to be built along the east side of Garbers Church Road, according to the city's website. They will connect Bluestone Elementary School, which is slated to open this fall, and Park Lawn Drive. In addition, the shared-use path will be extended from the elementary school's south side to Erickson Avenue. In the second part of the project, Garbers Church Road will be aligned through Hillandale Park, the city's website says. Also, the Garbers Church Road shared-use path will be attached to another path that aims to connect Thomas Harrison Middle School and Westover Park. Connect Our Schools, organized by the Shenandoah Valley Bicycle Coalition, began campaigning for paths that would link Bluestone, THMS and Harrisonburg High School and the surrounding parks and neighborhoods in early 2016. "Bluestone Elementary was opening, so we looked to the [city's] bike and pedestrian plan, and looked at projects that had been in the plan for more than a decade," said Kyle Lawrence, president of the SVBC. "The key link was to encourage folks to ride or walk around the [Heritage Oaks] Golf Course." SVBC officials created an online petition and met with City Council, which appropriated $1.5 million for the project at its Nov. 29 meeting. The Virginia Department of Transportation matched the $1.5 million bond. Erin Yancey, public works planning manager, said the path will provide Bluestone students, faculty and staff an alternative to driving and allow them to be active. "It will give students an option of walking to school on a really nice, new facility," Yancey said. "It will be a really great recreational aspect for the community, as well." After looking over the plan, community members can ask questions and offer feedback that engineers from Richmond-based Vanasse Hangen Brustlin Inc. will consider when designing the path. "It's important that the city hears input from folks about where the paths should go, and minimize the distances as much as possible because adding a half mile that's a big difference when you're talking about someone walking or biking to school," Lawrence said. "We want to make sure it serves recreation and transportation." The Harrisonburg Public Works Department plans to present an updated version of the project and host a public hearing as the path's details become more clear this upcoming spring or summer.
