There is on street parking, but we ask that you do not park in front of the house directly across the street from us (184 Corliss Drive) per request of the home owner, and please do not block any mail boxes, as we have been informed by the post office that they will refuse to deliver the mail. Please try to park on our side of the street and/or around the corner on Crossbrook Drive or in our driveway. We have a walkway from the driveway to the front of the house.

Wednesday is trash collection day, and each of the type containers is picked up by different trucks at different times of the day. Please leave plenty of room near any cans put out at the curb to guarantee access to the containers by the trucks.

Please help us be good neighbors!
