Overall this seems like a good thing. But “what defines a porch?” will likely become the question. What do you think?

?HOLIDAY TREE RECYCLING?

Don’t throw away your Christmas tree; give it another life by recycling it! Residents can drop trees off at Zilker Park, the first two weekends in January 2016. That means this weekend is your last chance to recycle your tree!
