Amundsen will undergo more than $3 million in renovations for its resource center, college and career counseling space, weight room and more, bringing recent capital investments in the school to $20 million. There are lots of opportunities in the next month to see for yourself all the great things happening at Amundsen and Lake View. Looking for a fun night out for the whole family?

GWCA & LVHS launch leaf cleanup by filling 150 bags

GWCA’s 4th Annual Street Leaf Cleanup was Saturday.  27 LVHS students partnered with us (and will receive Community Service hours).  Together we filled over 150 bags with street leaves.

Update:  Please keep raking and bagging street leaves.  Street leaves from side streets and Greenview move downhill with rain or snowmelt and obstruct cleaned sewer grates. Clogged grates cause flooding and allow wet, slippery leaves to build up. Once temperatures drop, icy surfaces develop. As a result of sudden high water, some cars on Greenview are totaled every year.  Additionally, due to slick leaves and icy surfaces, some of our GWCA neighbors have fallen on sidewalks and streets, a few even suffering a broken bone.  Leaves also provide rat habitat.  About 1/3 of leaves are still on trees following our November 12th Street Leaf Cleanup.

What can I do?

  • Encourage neighbors to help on your block
  • Continue to cleanup street leaves and if you use a landscaper, please remind them to clean street leaves too
  • Keep sidewalks, parkways, alleys and under garbage cans and dumpsters clear of leaves too
  • Help neighbors on the corner keep crosswalks and sewer drains clear
  • Don’t park with tires obstructing a sewer drain
  • Call 311 if there is standing water for more than 12 hours
