Hamburg Neighborhood News – March 2021
New Neighborhood Middle School Coming Soon
A new middle school planned for Polo Club Boulevard is now expected to serve more students and be larger than originally planned, due to forecast growth patterns in our neighborhood. The new $40.6 million middle school is set to open in August of 2023.
Lexington Public Library now offers mobile Wi-Fi hotspots for library customers to rent for a 14-day period. The hotspots, or mobile internet service points, are available on a first-come, first-serve availability basis.
“We know that the digital divide is a very real and serious problem within our community,” said LPL Executive Director Heather Dieffenbach. “Since we are unable to invite customers into our facilities while Fayette County remains in the Red Zone, we are providing mobile hotspots which can be used anywhere our customers choose. The hotspots may be checked out by themselves or with a library laptop.”
Hotspots are sent to your preferred library pickup location when one is available.
Cherry Pie Food Drive: Richmond Place is inviting the neighborhood to help make a difference. Your donations of non-perishable food items can help stock the shelves with nutritious food for children, seniors, veterans, and families. Donations will benefit the God’s Pantry Food Bank, which serves the surrounding area. Drop your donation at 3051 Rio Dosa Drive between 3 and 5 pm on Monday March 1 and they will send you home with cherry pie!
