Leaf Pickup Began October 23rd

Leaf Pickup Update for 11/17:

North - On Roosevelt at Maryland heading south
Central - On Dawson at Elm heading north
South - On Drexel at Powell heading north, helping the central crew finish this round

Below are a few simple guidelines to follow to ensure leaves are picked up in a timely and efficient manner:

  • Rake leaves to the back of the curb but not in the street.  If possible, please avoid placing leaf piles near mailboxes, trees, lights or signs.
  • Leaves will be collected on a weekly basis as the city will deploy one crew in north, central and south Bexley.
  • Please keep leaves out of storm water sewers and stream banks.  Leaves cause bacteria that depletes oxygen and can kill fish and other stream organisms.
  • Leaves can also be collected during scheduled yard waste collection dates if they are placed in paper yard waste bags or in a container marked “yard waste”.

If weather cooperates, this program will conclude in early to mid December, with all alleys collected following the completion of street pickup.

On November 9th, GRA+D architects were presented with a coveted Merit Award for their work on the Bexley City Hall development.  Bexley City Hall was awarded by the Columbus chapter of the American Institute of Architects for the building's design, which was described as "clean and subtle[...] compelling a feeling of hopefulness" by an independent panel of jurist architects from Portland, Oregon.  Mayor Kessler was on hand to help receive the award, thanking "architect Andrew Rosenthal and the team at GRA+D for helping transform a worn-down retail end unit into an open, energetic public space that embodies our ideals of collaboration, sustainability, and transparency."
