So, if I live along Rte 19 in the designated zone and DID NOT receive a notice, is it a case of not getting the letter , or is it a case of my pickup date is changed. Pretty confusing notice , not to mention the fact that this is a terrible way to disseminate information

Why was this posted with so little advance notice?? A friend let us know about it, otherwise our garbage would have been out at the end of our driveway on Monday!!

Please take down this incorrect notice.

Community of Inverness Growth Strategy Portal

The Growth Management Strategy will chart the course of actions that will enhance livability, ensure new growth supports high quality of life, and make financial sense in the long-term. The focus is on how to create overall benefit for current and future residents, acknowledging that recent local prosperity has not always been enjoyed equally among the community. The Strategy will identify how growth and new investment should be managed in order to minimize disturbances, like noise or water supply shortages, and maximize real benefits, like sidewalks or upgrades to parks. In other words, we know where the community wants to go, and the Growth Management Strategy will help us figure out the steps to get there.
