They are requesting a change from NE(Neighborhood Edge)/NG(Neighborhood General) to a PUD-8. PUD-8 means a Planned Urban Developement at 8 units per acre. A total of 135 units are planned for this 3 phase, 20 acre development.
Phase 1 is a 3 story senior complex with 60 units that would be built beginning in the spring of 2013. The building would be for folks age 55 and over with an income of 50% or less of the median income for our area. There would be 1 and 2 bedroom units available." Unfortunately the GHAC, at that time voted for the project to continue. The project never got off the ground due to lack of funding. Personally, I would like to see more mixed income…Continue

No sorting required. Put all recyclables in the blue cart.
Lids, caps and labels can be kept on recyclable containers.
Do not place dirty recyclables, like un-rinsed jars, in the cart.
Reference the graphic on the lid of your blue cart if you are unsure whether or not an item is accepted.
The recycling cart should be set out for collection in the same location as trash is collected. So, if a household's trash is collected in the alley, the blue recycling cart should be placed in the same location used for collection of the green 90 or 300-gallon trash container on the designated recycling collection day. If a household's trash is collected at the curbside in front of the home, the blue recycling cart should be placed at the curbside.
