Dear Resident:

The Longmeadow Public Works Department has contracted Gomes Construction to install a new sidewalk on the EAST SIDE of Knollwood Drive from Wolf Swamp School parking lot to Knollwood Circle.

The work is scheduled to begin Monday, July 20th. Project completion is expected to be August 21st .

Lawn Sprinklers: In an effort to reduce damages to lawn irrigation systems, please mark irrigation lines and sprinkler heads located at the edge of the sidewalk, and within the tree belt. Flags to mark irrigation lines and heads are available at the Department of Public Works. Should there be any damage to the marked irrigation, the Town’s contractor will make the necessary repairs. The contractor will make every effort to avoid your irrigation systems. Damage to unmarked irrigation systems will not be repaired by the Town.

Following sidewalk installation, Gomes Construction Company will be placing screened topsoil and grass seed in disturbed areas. We ask that you assist with the process by providing water and additional grass seed (as deemed necessary) in order to accomplish successful lawn restorations.

In an effort to facilitate weekly refuse collection, residents are asked to have their refuse and recycling curbside by 7:00 a.m., especially during periods construction work is taking place on your street.

We will make every effort to notify residents of any substantial schedule changes.  Please check the Town Facebook page ( for current updates. Please report any problems or concerns by contacting the Engineering Department at (413) 567-3400.
