I want to share that we are having a yard sale on Saturday, May 20 from 8 am – 1 pm at 16 Mitchell Street. We have many items in very good condition: toys, play table, wagon, small household items, clothes, and shoes. The weather is forecasted to be a good day to do some yard sale shopping.

Question, does anyone know what’s coming into the old Mama Rosas lot on Southville? Is it a pizza spot again?

From an excerpt of the 12/1/2016 Conservation Commissions meeting agenda, there is a Notice of Intent for an application for the redevelopment of a pizza business within the Riverfront Area.

Yes, it is, but not Mama Rosa’s. Let’s hope it is a good one, we are desperate to have really good pizza close by!

Thank you to police and fire for responding to my apartment late on Mothers Day, when a big tree branch came down and took out the building’s electrical service.

National Grid was there pretty fast, too.

What’s up with street sweeping this year? My street doesn’t seem to have been swept. I’m pretty sure it is usually done by the beginning of May.

What is the reasoning behind those huge spotlights at Woodwood School? They are tall, ugly and lots of them. Cannot believe they got approved.
