Muirfield Bike Lanes
Named a Bicycle Friendly City by the League of American Bicyclists in 2013 – Dublin continues to expand its bike path network. This summer five-foot wide bike lanes will be constructed along Muirfield Drive from Moors Place to Glick Road and pedestrian will be added over the North Fork Indian Run. The bridge construction will start this month and will connect the new bike lanes to existing paths located at the Muirfield Drive/Brand Road roundabout. Outside traffic lanes for northbound and southbound Muirfield Drive traffic are currently closed to traffic and will stay closed until the project is completed in November 2014. For questions contact Engineering Manager Ken Richardson at [email protected]or 614.410.4631.

Safety

See Something, Say Something
Chief Heinz von Eckartsberg wants to remind residents that crime prevention should be a goal for all. If you see something that doesn’t look quite right, call Police at 614.889.1112. The call you make can prevent a crime. http://dublinohiousa.gov/dublin-police/crime-reporting-and-prevention/

Community Service Officers
Dublin recently added six new Community Service Officers, bringing the City’s total to 15. Follow Dublin on social media to see features on this front-line group who dedicate hours each month to help Dublin Police and residents.

Dangers of Distracting Driving
We have all been guilty of it at one time or another – doing something else while driving. It can be eating, drinking a cup of coffee, looking at our cell phone, searching for a favorite song, or about anything else. In the coming months, Dublin Police will launch an education initiative regarding the dangers of Distracted Driving.

It's Greener in Dublin

Smart Watering
Want to save water and have a beautiful green lawn at the same time? Hint: the proper amount of water is one-inch of water a week. More tips available at http://dublinohiousa.gov/living/guidelines-efficient-watering-healthy-streams-greener-lawns/

Coyotes - Let Them Know They Are Not Welcome
Coyotes live among us - make sure you are taking the proper steps to protect yourself, your family and your pets. Pet food, unpicked fruit or vegetables and trash can all invite these unwelcome visitors. If you do encounter a coyote, don't back away. Throw rocks or items in the direction of the coyote, spray water from a garden hose, wave your arms, yell, and look as big as you can. You can learn more about coyotes and how to deter them at http://dublinohiousa.gov/nature/plants-animals/#coyotes

Get Connected

Nextdoor – New Way to Connect with the City of Dublin
The City has added Nextdoor, another communication tool where residents can converse with neighbors and City representatives. There are 25 active neighborhood groups with more than 1,000 households using this social media tool to exchange information, express concerns and stay current on neighborhood trends impacting your safety.https://nextdoor.com/

New Website Feature
It’s a new one-stop shop designed for neighborhood groups wrapped up in one webpage: http://dublinohiousa.gov/neighborhoods/ The City’s new webpage provides information, such as hosting a block party, links to previous Dublin Directs, contact information for all Dublin Homeowners Association and Civic Association Groups.
