Straight From The Heart – March 15, 2019

City Hall 120 W Loveland, Loveland OH 45140  •  •  513-683-0150   

Loveland’s Public Relations and Communications Committee has launched a “Stay Informed” campaign that encourages residents to connect with the City through its website and other means of communication. Join the Committee on March 19 at 7:00 p.m. at City Hall to start a community dialogue about how to keep yourself and all Loveland residents informed.

The 2019 Spring brush pickup program will begin on Monday, March 25, and end on Friday, March 29. Brush must be placed at the curb no later than Sunday night, March 24. Public Works crews will pickup brush for the entire City during this week. The following are guidelines established for the brush pickup program:

  • Brush must be placed at the curb or edge of roadway. Do not place brush in the roadway, gutter, ditches, or on sidewalks. Do not block fire hydrants.
  • Limbs cannot exceed 10 inches in diameter at the cut section.
  • Limbs should be placed at the curb with the cut section facing the street and all limbs should be facing the same direction. This makes it easier and faster to handle.
  • No leaves, pine needles, grass clippings, or other yard waste will be collected.
  • Small twigs and sticks should be bundled with twine in bundles 12 inches in diameter. Twigs or sticks can also be placed in a container at the curb, but no other yard waste should be in the containers. Please, no loose piles of sticks and debris.
Join us on April 1 from 6-8 p.m. at the Bond Furniture Warehouse, behind Magnolias, for the next public session for the Downtown Plan. On January 14 over 100 members of our community met at the Loveland Stage Company to provide YARD & Company with input related to the growth and development of Downtown. That feedback, along with other analysis and engagement, has been packaged into several scenarios and options. On April 1, those options will be presented with the goal of getting additional feedback that will inform the final plan. The event will be a fun way to provide input about the future of our city and to meet some of your neighbors!
