How do I participate?

This year, community members are required to register to participate in Slow Mow May. There are two ways to register:

  1. Email with your property address.
  2. Register in-person with the Development and Planning Services Department (second floor of Village Hall, 1225 Cedar Lane). To receive a “Slow Mow May” yard sign, you must register in-person. Signs available until supplies last.
