I just posted a request for more trash bins in the park at SEECLICKFIX. I participated in a neighborhood cleanup last Saturday, and part of the problem is there are no bins for folks to put trash esp. at the southern end of the park. Pleaes go to SEECLICKFIX and add your name to my request. Maybe if more people ask for this, we will finally get bins

It seems like more and more people are visiting the new site. There are still some details that can be improved and changed and as a creator and administrator I will continue doing it. Soon we will phase out the old Basecamp site and will use this as the main and ONLY tool to communicate and collaborate with CSNA members. Your comments are welcome.
