Two events in Goose Hollow helped to launch the work for the Central City's West Quadrant Plan
The West Quadrant planning process kicked off in early December with two events focused on the Goose Hollow District of the Central City. First was an evening workshop held on December 5th where community members worked in small groups to identify community assets, issues and opportunities that should be considered during the planning process.
Second was a concept development charrette held on December 12th, where stakeholders, staff and consultants spent the afternoon generating ideas about how Goose Hollow could look and feel in the future. A number of rough sketches were produced illustrating those ideas
There was a good turnout for both events, each drawing about 30 people, including a mix of residents, area businesses and property owners. Participants came with a high level of energy and excitement about the planning process and there was lots of good discussion and exchanging of ideas. Thank you to the Hotel deLuxe for hosting both of the events!
Staff will work to compile the results of the events into a summary report that will be available in late January 2013. From there ideas will be grouped into draft concepts for further discussion and feedback from the community.

How to sort, reuse, donate and recycle your gift wrap
When the gift-giving frenzy is over, we are often left with piles of gift bags, wrapping paper, boxes and other packaging. Here are some tips for sorting the wrapping rather than letting it all go to waste.
Reuse or donate
Gift bags, durable ribbons and bows, boxes or other packaging materials in good condition (including wrapping paper) can be used again. Under-the-bed storage boxes or other durable containers can make storage easy and convenient. If you’d rather not store gift packaging, you may donate to SCRAP for creative reuse.
Some gift wrap items can be recycled at the curb, including:
Toss the rest
After sorting out the reusable and recyclable items, the remaining items should go in curbside garbage (or to a non-curbside recycling facility, if applicable):
If your household has extra garbage, you can set out extra bags on your collection day for $5 each. Extra garbage must be 32 gallons or smaller and weigh 55 lbs. or less. Renters should arrange with landlords to authorize extra garbage collection.
Use the Curbside Collection E-schedule to find your pickup schedule, sign up for weekly reminders and look up your garbage and recycling company.
