City News & Announcements
To maintain public safety, the North Shore Road Bridge is closed to vehicular traffic until further notice. A temporary access route has been established over the bridge for people walking, rolling, and biking.
The City recently identified structural concerns with the retaining wall near the bridge. We are investigating the conditions of the retaining wall and conducting a structural analysis over the coming months. Long-term closure may be needed.
Please use alternative routes and keep North Shore Road for local traffic. We will keep you informed about the wall condition, updated timelines, and closure plans as we learn more.
The City Council is considering a referendum asking voters to establish additional protections for our parks and natural spaces while preserving the City’s ability to adapt to the changing needs of our community and environment.
Thank you to everyone to participated in the public outreach! The City Council will decide whether to move forward with a measure during the August 3 City Council meeting.
We are excited to announce that two traditional concerts will be returning this year!
- Dancehall Days
Wednesday, July 21, 7-9pm, Foothills Park
- Stone in Love
Wednesday, August 25, 6:30-8:30pm, Westlake Park
No registration required, just come and enjoy the fun!
These are in addition to the small-scale Picnic in the Park concerts, which continue on Thursdays through the end of August (registration required),
The City is encouraging residents to get to know their neighbors, and we think the best way to do this is to have a party!
Tuesday, August 3 - National Night Out - is a perfect day for a party and, if you’re one of the first 20 neighborhoods to register with the City, your party will receive a visit by a fire truck or police squad car, maybe even a Police K9!
Invite your friends and neighbors and get to know the people who live around you!

We're in the home stretch of construction, but there are still some major traffic changes remaining. Key takeaways:
- The new Lanewood Street signal is now active, including permitted U-turns
- Northbound Lake Grove post office access has changed - use the Lanewood signal and make a U-turn
Pavement rehabilitation and patching is starting soon on some city streets and will continue through early fall. Pavement rehabilitation will occur on:
- Bryant Road (between Jean Road and Canal Woods)
- Overlook Drive (between Westview Drive and Tree Top Lane)
- Melrose Street (between Fosberg Road and Peters Road)
- Lake Shore Road loop
Additional streets will receive major spot patching repairs.
Watch for signage and be cautious around work areas.
Water conservation can go a long way to help alleviate impending shortages.
Be water wise with these tips and resources!
