Update on Cedar Lane Restoration

WSSC has advised the Town that D & F Construction will begin work on Cedar Lane starting next week. This first phase of the rehabilitation work, which follows the completion of the WSSC Cedar Lane Water Main Replacement, will consist of removal of existing side islands, installation of new center islands at Glenridge, Franklin and Dresden Streets, curb/gutter repair and sidewalk repair. Due to the scope of this activity, you may wish to avoid the Cedar Lane intersections.

Joe Toomey, Council member Ron Sherrow and Jana Coe will be monitoring this work closely. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me.

Leaf Collection ends December 31, 2017

The Town contracted with Hughes Landscaping for the Fall 2017 Leaf Collection. The December 31st end collection date ensures that mounds of leaves are not placed in our streets in January when the winter snow removal is underway. There is no set day for the weekly pickup.

Collection Place
Rake the leaves to your curb for vacuum pickup. Residents along Cedar Lane, Saul Road, Kensington Parkway and Connecticut Avenue are asked to rake their leaves only to the sidewalk or curb and not into the street in order that the piles of leaves do not impede the flow of pedestrian and vehicular traffic.

Leaf Collection Tips
Limbs, rocks and other heavy objects must be removed, and leaves should not be placed in plastic bags. Residents who prefer to bag their leaves should follow the Town’s yard waste instructions and place the bags/containers at the curb for the weekly (Monday) yard waste collection.

Park Improvement: Kensington Cabin

Montgomery County has informed the Town that rehabilitation of the historic Kensington Cabin will begin this fall.  The estimated time to complete is four months and includes:

  • the asphalt path that leads from Everett St. to the Cabin will be temporarily used for construction access and requires closure and fencing for safety;
  • brief closures of the swing set next to the cabin for safety;
  • tree protection fencing installed for the walnut and sycamore trees directly adjacent to the cabin.
