However, participants may walk or run whatever portion they are comfortable with. NateWalk events also offer games, guest appearances, food, and other opportunities to show support such as a silent auction with items donated by various companies and individuals. Events are held once per year in Indianapolis, Indiana, and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. You do not have to live in these areas to support the cause or participate!

Avon is amazingly beautiful . In order to keep it that way, we need all Avon residents and business owners to keep the trash in appropriate receptacles. The Town invests money and time trying to keep the Town looking good and differentiating itself from everywhere else. We ask residents to help us by not throwing trash out the window, or on the ground. It's actually cheaper for you to take it home and throw it away in your trash can than throwing it out your window and the Town paying for someone to pick it up.

We appreciate everyone’s help in making Avon a better place to live.

The Town of Avon has been hosting Council Conversations with the public over the last few months. The goal of

these conversations are to provide an open and safe space, outside of Town Hall, to talk about what is important to YOU. Recently, Planning Director Bill Peeples, Town Manager Ryan Cannon, Council President Robert Pope, and Council Member Greg Zusan was at the Avon/Washington Township Library discussing the new UDO, and what

the Town can and can not legally do in regards to what is built within the Town limits. avongov.org/calendar

What’s new in the park maintenance world?

The maintenance crew has been out and about installing doggie stations! After receiving several requests from the trail users, four dog waste stations have been installed on the White Lick Trail. The stations are located in the south end of the trail near East County Road 100 South, the intersection of the access trail from the Washington Township Splash Pad parking lot, the intersection of the connector trail from South County Road 625 East close to the iron truss bridge, and approximately halfway between E. US Highway 36 and E. CR 600 North. After only one week the Parks Staff has found all of the stations are being used… which tells you poo-bags are never far away!
