Mechanical street sweeping takes place in September, December, March and June. The even
side is swept on the 2nd Wednesday ... the odd side on the 4th Wednesday. More cooperation
with residents moving vehicles would make the area cleaner.
The next meeting is to be on Tues., May 12th, 2009 at the
Citizens' Center at 7:30PM.
By 1915, some subdivisions activity was taking place in two locations of
the Cross Country Area. "Bancroft Park" was an ambitious paper project
that anticipated development along Bancroft Road and Clarks Lane both
north and south of Western Run.
By 1940, however, very little building had taken place in the area. Some
subdivision of land and a little building was also taking place along W.
Strathmore Avenue, adjacent to the Glen community.
With the exception of several large apartment buildings, which were erected east of Park Heights Avenue in the 1920's, most residential construction in Cross Country took place between 1940 and 1960. The Cross Country Improvement Association was founded in 1971.
