Community Learns About Bike Lane Project
Thank you to all the residents who joined us for a community meeting on bike lane and sidewalk improvements along North Moorpark Road. We received great feedback and addressed important questions. Funded by federal grant money, the project runs from West Olson Rd (south) to the Conejo Valley YMCA (north), improving safety and aesthetics near the Norwegian Grade. For more information on this project and other local improvement projects, visit the City's website.

We're Improving Our Storm Drains
On August 31, the City will begin rehabilitating four miles of wastewater collection pipeline, 100 maintenance holes and 1,500 linear feet of storm drain pipes. This project will reduce wastewater and help prevent flooding of streets while improving roadway safety. Prior to any work being done, homeowners near the project locations will be notified and asked not to run water down their drains for several hours during the process. For more information visit the City's website.
