You’ll receive an email confirmation, which you must accept. From there, important posts are sent directly to your inbox.
Website Posts: Moving forward, we will continue to post items to the homepage of the project website: www.parkridgewonderful.com. Every news post shown on the homepage is also sent as a direct email notification to our website subscribers.
Facebook Notifications: Project updates are also being posted to the Park Ridge Wonderful Facebook Page – click here – so be sure to follow along there too. Both the website and Facebook notifications are in addition to public notices shared by the City.
