As a reminder, it is illegal to rake leaves into the street, a practice that clogs storm drains and can create slippery conditions for drivers and cyclists. Whenever possible, please clear stormwater grates in your neighborhood of leaves and debris to aid stormwater runoff. Please bag and sticker or compost leaves with your lawnmower.
