Neighborhood Support
A HUGE thank you to those who have already signed up to be Block Captains! We already have 25 blocks covered! We still are looking for around 50 more Block Captains. Click below to sign up!

What's all this about Block Captains ?
During this time of social distancing and isolation, neighbors have been reaching out to help other neighbors for grocery pick up or other needs. Many neighbors are also looking for ways to help and stay connected. Thank you for your interest in assisting your neighborhood!

To support these efforts, the Hyde Park Neighborhood Association is seeking individuals from every block in the neighborhood to organize and help neighbors. These Block Captains will serve as a point of contact for neighbors on their block. Area representatives from the HPNA Board will provide support to the Block Captains. 

Please click below if you are interested and complete the form. We ask that only neighbors that are symptom free and not high risk volunteer. Thank you in advance for your willingness to help!

Special No-tag t rash week April 13-17
Staying at home means you'll likely find that your trash bins will fill faster than normal so the Solid Waste division, in coordination with contract partner WCA Waste Corporation (WCA), is having a special No-tag Week April 13-17.

During No-tag Week , residents may place up to 12 bags at the curb.  Regular trash rules  apply. No hazardous waste, bulky items or leaf and brush will be collected.

Meanwhile, Michael Shaw (solid waste division manager) still encourages everyone to continue recycling. “Unfortunately, about 70 percent of what we pick up now could be recycled,” he said, “and, unlike the normal two bag trash limit, there’s no limit on recycling pick-up.”

Additionally, here is a resource for compost:

  • Compost Collective KC is still collecting compost curbside. For more information, visit their website.
Linwood Corridor Survey
Thanks to everyone who attended the public open house for the Linwood Corridor Plan in early March. If you missed the meeting or have additional comments about the potential transportation improvement concepts, please participate in our online opinion survey through Friday, April 10 and/or use the #LinwoodCorridor hashtag on social media. 

The improvement concepts are shown in the survey. They are based on technical analysis and input received from previous meetings and online commenting. Sharing your thoughts about them will help us develop the preferred concepts and recommendations for the Linwood Corridor Plan.
