Tip of the Week

While Village pick up of yard waste doesn't begin until the week of April 9, residents can still drop off materials at the yard waste site on Fairy Chasm Road at any time.  While you're there, you can even pick up some mulch for your plant beds.

Thought for the Week 

"If you get the inside right, the outside will fall into place."


-- Eckhart Tolle

Early Recreation

While we didn't want to jinx our good weather fortune - we couldn't wait any longer - the tennis nets are now up at Ellsworth Park!  Get out and enjoy the beautiful unseasonable weather by visiting Ellsworth Park.  Along with the tennis courts and a practice bounce board, families can enjoy our baseball diamond, volleyball court, ADA accessible playground, and even soccer fields. 


Keep thinking Spring!

Bayside Fun

The snow may be gone for now, but look no further than Bayside's sledding hill when it returns.  Check out a great time, courtesy of Bayside resident Mike De Sisti, and his daughter Bella (pictured).


The Cleanin' Season

The Spring-like weather has already reached us, which means it's time to start our Spring cleaning.  The Village's Spring Clean Up Day is just around the corner - Saturday, April 21.  Residents can start gathering items now to bring them to Village Hall to have them properly donated or disposed of.  Some items to consider:

  • Habitat for Humanity (useable construction materials, etc.);
  • GoodWill;
  • Electronics Recycling (TVs, Computers, etc.)
  • Dehumidifiers;
  • Household Hazardous Waste (held in Ellsworth Park parking lot);
  • Recycling;
  • much more!

Volunteers are what make this event possible - contact Lynn Galyardt to volunteer for any amount of time.  See you there!

Mutual Respect

The weather has turned, and that means it's perfect for getting out and enjoying everything Bayside has to offer, including walking and biking through the Village.  While all forms of traffic are welcome, we ask that everyone practice safe habits, and respect other users of the road. 


When possible, we ask bikers to please ride bike lane single file on the narrower, interior roads, to help ease traffic congestion, and to ride quietly and as you live there.  Vehicles should also give bicycles plenty of room, and to acknowledge their place on our streets. 


With everyone working together, we know everyone can enjoy the great weather, and beautiful scenery Bayside has to give.  Safe travels!

Don't Blink

The new consolidated dispatch center construction is quickly moving!  Crews have begun remodeling work inside the existing building to merge the two facilities.  The new addition is also shaping up rather quickly, with floor being set, ceiling put into place, and equipment arriving on a daily basis. 


As the weather continues to improve, crews will begin outside landscaping work, which includes stormwater drainage requirements and final grade landscaping for trees, shrubs and grass.  Take time to view the photo gallery, where you can monitor the construction progress.  It's expected that the facility will be fully functional by mid-June, nearly a month ahead of schedule.
