Along with the Waltham Land Trust, we would like to say a huge "Thank You" to everyone who came out and participated in our Moody Street Clean Up this past Sunday! We had over 40 participants and cleaned up an estimated 25 full bags of trash and litter! The Waltham Land Trust and the The City of Waltham stocked us up with gloves and trash bags... and Lizzy's Homemade Ice Cream gave out Coupons for Kiddie Ice creams to kids 10 and under who came as well.



The City of Waltham will be reconstructing the sidewalks along Main Street over the next few months.  The contractor, A.R. Belli, will commence work on April 11, 2016, starting on the North side of Main Street from Church Street to Banks Square.


There will be NO PARKING allowed between 7 a.m. and 5 pm each day, while the project is in front of your property.  No parking signs will be posted.  The contractor will be in front of your property for approximately three (3) weeks.
