Finally, the newsletter offers an overview of places to go and things to do in our community: 

  • Mark your calendars and plan to attend upcoming community events.
  • Take advantage of the City's branch drop off program - drop off your yard waste every second Saturday, then we turn it into compost and wood chips that you can take free of charge for your yard improvements.
  • Start planning for the Colwood Spring Clean Up on April 28 & 29 - affordable disposal and recycling of everything from appliances and car parts, to toilets and wood waste.
  • Join us any time at a Council meeting to hear first hand about decisions that affect you. (Subscribe to see what's on the agenda, and watch City meetings online from the comfort of your own home.)
