SPRING! The promise of warmer weather is beckoning us outside as our community comes alive from its winter rest. I, for one, am more than ready for open windows, fresh air and the scents of Spring!
My Administration and our City Council have been busy budgeting for our projects and operations this year. In addition to the projects we have planned and funded the County and State will be contracting major road work to be done in Lyndhurst as well. Two weeks ago the County's repaving of Cedar Road began at South Green Road and is headed east. The first leg of the project will repave up to Legacy Village and then will continue east to I-271. It is expected that traffic will move much more slowly than normal, so avoiding Cedar Road may be a good idea for the time being. As we get updates on this project, we will post on the ENews and may, depending upon the issue, put out a recorded voice message announcement. The Cedar Road project is much needed and well overdue but it will present a challenge for thousands who travel that east-west corridor daily. The State will be working on Richmond Road replacing concrete panels from Mayfield Road south to Meadow Wood. This should not provide major traffic disruption. We are fortunate this work is being done and should plan our travels accordingly.
For the first time we have planned a State of the City Address for Monday, May 6th 2019 which will follow a BRIEF Council meeting beginning at 6:30 pm. This very informative event will be held at the Lyndhurst Community Center, 1341 Parkview Drive. Please set aside a little time to learn more about our City and its governance at this forum where you will have opportunity to ask questions. Of course, refreshments will be served!
We will, as always, have our Concert in the Park Series, so please check (and save) the calendar in this magazine issue for the dates of these concerts — free ice cream will be served! We will also have our 3rd National Night Out event on Tuesday, August 7th 2019 with hot dogs / ice cream / entertainment and fun for the entire family! I hope to see you at all our great events this summer!
