Good morning Georgetown, here’s the latest:

  • Georgetown Visitation student teams with mentor forĀ rewarding partnership.
  • Georgetown’s getting another Circulator: Council approves new Circulator route to replace remaining Blue Bus route. The old route appears to be not affected by the change.
  • Psst, the best places to sled around Georgetown are Montrose Park and Archibold Parkway (just South of Reservoir).
