Parade and Tree Seedling Giveaway for National Public Works Week


In lieu of a traditional open house for National Public Works Week, our Department of Public Works will bring the big trucks to you on Saturday, May 22. The parade will begin at 9 a.m. on the western border of the City near the intersection of Division and Maplelawn and travel toward the eastern border of the City, ending around 11 a.m. near the intersection of Burton and Forest Meadows Court.

We invite residents to enjoy the parade from their porch, yard or driveway to allow for safe physical distancing outdoors. Please feel free to give us a wave as we pass by!
