Help plan for the future of the Altamont Corridor

Help plan for the future of the Altamont Corridor

TRACY - Plans are in the works to redesign and modernize the existing ACE train. Please join us to learn more about the Altamont Corridor Rail Project, which will create an exciting new commuter and intercity train service connecting the Central Valley, Tri-Valley and Silicon Valley. This faster electric train could be a real alternative to driving on the 580/205 freeways! 

At these upcoming public meetings, a variety of options for new routes and station sites and the results of the preliminary alternatives analysis will be presented for community feedback. Your input is vitally important, as we are selecting the range of alternative routes and station locations that will go forward for detailed consideration in the environmental impact analysis.

Free yard waste pick-up service available until Feb. 1

RIPON - The city is still providing free pick-up service for disposal of leaves, trimmings and Christmas trees, until Feb. 1.

Residents should place loose yard trimmings and leaves in the street just outside of the gutter (the gutter needs to remain clear for water runoff). No other solid waste of any kind should be included among the prunigs or leaves. Branches should not be more than 4-feet-long. Do not bag or tie the trimmings.

There's no need to call City Hall to have your trimming picked up. A special Public Works crew will pick it up each week as they check neighborhoods. The workers don't follow a set route, so if the yard trimmings are not picked up one week, they will get picked up the next.
