Storm Drain Call To Action Update:The Greenbriar Neighborhood Council has recently asked the City of Richmond to resume its practice of annually cleaning the storm drains on the scenic easements between Kipling Dr. and Maison Way. As it has been only 6 years since we moved to this wonderful area, I was unfamiliar with this custom. But I can say that in that in those 6 years I have never seen the City out here on a cleaning mission. This information came to me in part because of a chance meeting with one of our residents on the day I walked the hillside with the City workers. Over her back fence this resident asked me if the City was going to resume cleaning the storm drains "like they used to". In small communities like Greenbriar, some of the best information is learned over the back fence! It also helps to check into this website from time to time!
We are presently waiting for a response from the City of Richmond's Environmental Manager Lynne Scarpa for the final word on this important issue. As soon as we hear from her we will let you know how the City has decided to handle this.
President, Greenbriar Neighborhood Council
