The City of Palm Coast is continuing to monitor Tropical Storm Elsa and preparing for any possible impacts it may bring to the area.
As there is the potential for strong winds, Waste Pro yard debris collections have been cancelled for Wednesday, July 7, city-wide. Yard debris will instead be collected on Saturday, July 10. Please secure any loose debris that could be picked up by strong winds. The rest of the week will operate under a normal pick up schedule.
Additionally, outdoor Parks activities and facilities will be closed on Wednesday, July 7, due to the potential for dangerous outdoor conditions. This includes: Indian Trails Sports Complex, Palm Coast Aquatics Center, Palm Coast Tennis Center, Palm Harbor Golf Club, Tennis and pickleball play at James F. Holland Memorial and Belle Terre Park, Splash Pad at James F. Holland Memorial Park, all playgrounds, and Field trips for Fun in the Sun Summer Camp.
Indoor programming and activities, including Fun in the Sun Summer Camp, will proceed as normal at the Palm Coast Community Center.
In preparation for the storm, please secure loose outdoor articles including grills, bicycles, potted plants, lawn furniture or lawn ornaments. During heavy winds, these items could become dangerous projectiles.
