Posted on Friday, April 04, 2014

It's spring, and that means 3 things: warmer weather, heavy rains, and the start of construction season! Although, really, does construction season ever really end? It seems like it doesn't, but it's an inconvenience with a great payoff in the end! With so much going on this year, we wanted to share an update…

Building Momentum: Camille Garrison

Posted on Friday, March 14, 2014

Over the weekend, until…

Biking bonanza

Posted on Tuesday, May 14, 2013

Biking definitely has its benefits. Besides the fact that it helps keep you fit, saves money on gas, and reduces your carbon footprint, it can get you free food! That's right, folks, there's gratuitous grub involved in this deal. This Friday, May 17, is National Bike to Work Day. To celebrate, Mayor Tom Henry and…
