The City’s Bureau of Transportation has advised that leaves will be swept in Leaf District NW 1 on March 14th. NW 1 is the area encompassed by Burnside, 21st, Marshall and 16th. The flyer advises that Parking restrictions will be in place and enforced. If the past is any indication, there will be signs on the streets about two days before.This is “catch-up” sweeping of leaves that were frozen when this was scheduled in December.

SW 1 (other side of Burnside) is scheduled for 12 March.  The circular mentions sweeping gravel both days on Lovejoy from NW 24 to NW 25th, continuing up Cornell up to the first tunnel.
