City Council Special Meeting: Florida-T Recommendation
What: Council will consider the recommendation of the Cleveland Avenue Task Force to create a "Florida-T" intersection at Woodlawn Avenue and Capitol Trail. Woodlawn Avenue would become
unsignalized with a right turn in/right turn out only. Capitol Trail eastbound would have a constant green light unless a pedestrian pushes the button to cross Capitol Trail. If the "Florida-T" intersection is approved, an additional recommendation to install a "Hawk" (High-intensity Activated crossWalK) signal for the new crosswalk on East Cleveland Avenue, just west of McKees Lane with a central pedestrian refuge island will also be considered. This is a signal that would stop traffic on East Cleveland Avenue at the crosswalk when activated by a pedestrian.
When: Thursday, November 2, at 6:30 p.m.
Where: Aetna Hose, Hook and Ladder Station #8, 410 Ogletown Rd., Newark
What: NewBark PawLooza will be a fantastic good time with exciting activities and vendors that will provide all the pooch pampering needs a pet owner could want. Attendees can watch doggie demos, participate in canine contests, enjoy a romp around the park, or meet a new best friend at a local rescue group booth. All dogs must be leashed (6' or less), non-aggressive, and up to date on their shots to attend. The event is sponsored by Cinemark Christiana Mall. Vendor spaces are still available.

Public Workshop on Stormwater Project at Former Rodney Dorm Site
What: The final of three coordinated workshops regarding the proposed stormwater project at the former Caesar Rodney Residence Hall Complex (Rodney Dorm Site) will include a presentation of the preferred concept and next steps in the process.
By incorporating input from the public, elected officials, and City staff, the final plan will include a combination of items balancing community recreation, infrastructure, and stormwater needs. Integration with the surroundings, existing conditions, and consideration of environmental and natural resources will be included in the final design. The City anticipates utilizing State Revolving Loan Funds through the referendum process, which is scheduled for Spring 2018 (pending approval by Council), for the purchase and development of the site.
