Starting in 2014, University City will include the subdivision in its summer street sweeping schedule. This is in addition to the 3 annual leaf pickup dates, which occur in late Fall and early Spring.
Most of the streets in the University Park Subdivision run in an east-west direction (parallel to Delmar). The subdivision’s east-west streets include: 7000-7300 Princeton, 7000-7200 Cambridge, 7000-7300 Cornell, 7000-7300 Stanford, 7200-7300 Colgate, 7000-7300 Amherst, and the 7000/7100 blocks of Tulane and Dartmouth. The only north-south streets in the subdivision are Vanderbilt and Purdue, and a short section of Vassar. (The other two primary north-south streets are Pennsylvania, which is owned and maintained by University City, and Midland Blvd., which is owned and maintained by St. Louis County.)
University City organizes its street sweeping schedule according to different sides of the street: the south sides of the east-west streets are swept on Tuesday. The north sides of the east-west streets are swept on the following Thursday. On the day before a scheduled street sweeping, the subdivision trustees will post “No Parking” signs on the subdivision’s sawhorses on Midland Blvd., showing the date and the side of the street which is scheduled for sweeping. Similar signs will be posted at Amherst & Vanderbilt, and at the Princeton end of Purdue Avenue.
For 2018 the street sweeping schedule for University Park Subdivision includes the following dates:
Week of May 28 – June 1
Week of July 30 – August 3
Week of September 24 – September 28
University City also provides leaf collection in Fall (twice) and in Spring (once). Please check the back of the University City calendar for the dates for your area. The leaf collection schedule is also available online from the Public Works Department section of the University City web site. Please note: University Park Subdivision spans both the Central Area (west of Midland) and the East Area (east of Midland) in University City, and the leaf collection schedule varies, depending on whether your location is within the Central or East Areas. Leaf collection is scheduled for an entire week, Monday-Friday: be sure to rake your leaves into the street PRIOR to the first day of the scheduled pick up, because leaf collection can occur on any of those five days.
