October is Alley Month!

Summer is coming to end, and autumn is upon us! Several of the alleys in the Garden District have become wildly overgrown with invasive bamboo, while others have trash and debris. All this vegetation and detritus narrows the alley making it difficult for trucks to maneuver.

Please plan on cleaning your alley one Saturday in October. Many blocks have Block Captains who will be contacting residents. Please help your block this October and keep your alley in good shape all year. If you would like to know who your block captain is, please email [email protected].

Garden District Alley Guidelines

Alleys provide several benefits for residents who live along the alleys:

  • Vehicle parking at the rear of the home
  • Alley garbage collection
  • Alley delivery of home appliances and construction material
  • Alley access for first responders (EMS & fire trucks).

All alley residents share the responsibility of maintaining their alley.

OBSTRUCTIONS

A city ordinance prohibits any alley obstructions. You and service vehicles may unload in your alley, but please tell service men they need to move their vehicle if requested by a resident.

GRASS & VEGETATION

Alley residents are responsible for mowing alley grass and trimming alley vegetation. Some alleys in the Garden District are well manicured while others have overgrown vegetation. A well-kept alley is a safer alley because it offers no protection for a prowler.

GARBAGE & DEBRIS

Garbage trucks (Tuesdays and Fridays) empty garbage cans in your alley or at your front curb. ANY TRASH NOT IN A GARBAGE CAN MUST BE PLACED AT YOUR FRONT CURB FOR TUESDAY PICKUP BY THE TRASH TRUCK. Trash includes: tires, building material, tree limbs and vegetation, but not contractor debris. Residents/contractors are responsible for contractor debris. Place trash at your front curb away from vehicles, trees and power lines so the boom truck can pick it up. No garbage or trash is picked up on 22nd street.

Consider the following:

  1. Post your house number in your alley in case you ever need a first responder to come to your back door.
  2. Add a motion detector or light on your alley.

Send your questions or comments to gdcabr.org/contact-us.

Trees in the News!

Our very own WBRZ heard us shouting from the roof tops about our gorgeous trees, and they sent Brittany Weiss to investigate.

CHECK OUT THE STORY

Here’s How You Can Help Our Dying Trees!

Donate! To keep costs low, we must raise the funds to do an entire median at a time. It’s a $1,000 to prune, mulch and care for one (1) tree. You can donate any amount or adopt a whole tree at gdcabr.org/live-oaks.

Reach Out to Neighbors! Talk to your neighbors, peer pressure your loved ones, and help us keep the Garden District the beautiful place it is. If you live along a boulevard, please consider reaching out to your neighbors and adopting your median. We are also looking for big sponsors. The Garden District Civic Association created a non-profit to care for these majestic beasts so your donation is tax deductible!

Please contact the Board if you have any questions about the Collective or if you have any trouble donating at [email protected].
