“Pike Road, we are so appreciative of the way you engage in our community, from ENHANCE initiative activities to supporting local businesses and helping out neighbors in need. The 2021 Spring Cleanup is just one illustration of this: We had 18 groups participate, 14 miles of roadways covered, and 114 bags of litter picked up from our community. Thank you for showing your Pike Road pride and community spirit through this beautification initiative! This week, we were also pleased to join members of the P.R.A.Y.E.R. (Pike Road Area Your Emergency Response) Team in recognition of the National Day of Prayer. Faith leaders representing eight of our local churches visited each Pike Road Schools campus to offer a moment of prayer for our community, our nation, and our schools. What a special way to give thanks for our many blessings! In addition, we want to thank our partners and neighbors for working together and helping one another following this week’s strong storms. This collaborative effort was a true show of community spirit. We appreciate your continued efforts to safely engage and support one another, all while making smart, safe decisions that help us build confidence and experience more flexibility with regards to COVID-19 as we move forward.

 

The current Safer Apart Order for Alabama means that masks are no longer mandated, but we all have the opportunity and responsibility to help keep our community healthy. As you are out and about, please recognize the value of continuing to protect yourselves and others. There may still be times when it is appropriate to practice 6-foot social distancing, avoid the risks of crowds, and wear a face mask, especially in public spaces or around those outside of your household. Washing your hands thoroughly and frequently is always a good idea! Beginning this week, the Town will no longer require face masks in municipal buildings, but we continue to encourage visitors to practice personal responsibility, and face masks will be available upon request. Further, we encourage all of our residents to honor the requests of individual businesses and organizations throughout Pike Road as relates to COVID-19 practices and precautions. Thank you for your diligence and understanding during this challenging time.

Through the dedicated work of ADPH, the EMA, and all of our healthcare providers, we continue to see expanding opportunities to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. At this time, individuals ages 16+ are eligible to receive the vaccine. Click here to learn more from ADPH and find a vaccine near you.

We are excited to invite you to participate in a variety of ENHANCE initiative activities this month, beginning tonight!

“We are so excited to welcome Publix Super Markets to the Town of Pike Road! Our local Publix opened this week at the Shops at Pike Road, located in the Mt. Meigs-Merry Town Center near the intersection of Pike and Vaughn Roads. This milestone follows years of dedicated work by our planning and development teams, and we look forward to the energy and opportunities our first grocery store brings to the Town of Pike Road. We also want to say thank you, Pike Road, for all you do to support each of our local businesses. Throughout the pandemic, our local businesses have found innovative ways to safely serve the community, and our community has continued to engage and support these special shops. As we continue to make progress in the fight against COVID-19, we look forward to continued opportunities to enjoy and engage with our local businesses.

We are thankful to continue to see expanding opportunities to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. On Monday, Mar. 22, eligibility for the vaccine expanded to include individuals 55+ and other groups. Click here to learn more from ADPH. However, this is an ongoing process, and, to continue moving forward toward the days when the challenges of COVID-19 are over, we must continue to take the simple, healthy precautions we know can help keep our community safe. Please practice 6-foot social distancing, frequent and thorough handwashing, and avoid crowd situations. It is also vital to have a face mask available to wear in public spaces and around those outside of your household. Wearing a face covering or mask is an easy way to help protect yourself, your family, and all of our neighbors. Although we are making progress, please understand that the risk of COVID-19 is still present, and remain focused on making safe, smart decisions based on recommendations from the CDC and ADPH. The updated Safer at Home order and statewide mask requirement continue through April 9.

 

Spring brings great energy to our community, and there are so many ways to get involved in the Town of Pike Road. Thank you for your engagement in our ongoing array of ENHANCE initiative activities! Today, we enjoyed the Turfgrass 101 Ag & Stewardship workshop, and in partnership with the Alabama Extension, this monthly series continues on April 16 with Bee Basics. On weekends, visit the Pike Road Arts Center to enjoy their spring show, It Isn’t Easy Being Green, through April 18. You may find the perfect piece to spruce up your home! It’s also time to register for the Spring Cleanup. Throughout the month of April, we encourage you to join us in the annual Spring Cleanup litter pickup. We’ll provide all the supplies – just add volunteers! Visit us online at www.pikeroad.us to learn about these events, and register for our weekly e-newsletter so you always know what’s coming up.

 

Town of Pike Road facilities have returned to Phase 1 of operations, and we are ready to welcome visitors once again. However, COVID-19 is an ongoing challenge, and health precautions including social distancing and mask-wearing are in place. We continue to be ready and available to serve you, and we encourage you to schedule an appointment via phone or email if you need to meet with one of our team members.

“Throughout the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have been blessed to work with outstanding partners whose dedication ensures that our daily lives were affected as little as possible. For their hard work and commitment, we want to say thank you. The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office team, our local volunteer fire departments, and all of our first responders continue to serve with efficiency and care, often at their own risk. AmWaste, our sanitation service partner, adapted to the needs of our community as we spent more time at home. Our utility providers continue to ensure we receive excellent service amid the challenges of both the pandemic and winter weather. Our local businesses continue to find innovative ways to safely serve the community, and partners like the Alabama Cooperative Extension System have worked with us to continue providing virtual ENHANCE initiative quality of life programming for everyone. Not to mention, the leadership, teachers, and staff of Pike Road Schools have innovated and adapted to ensure every child has the opportunity to learn safely throughout this time. Thank you for all you do, and thank you, Pike Road, for your support and engagement.

 

As we move forward, we are excited to see access to the COVID-19 vaccine continue to expand, but it is important to recognize that the pandemic is an ongoing challenge. In order to continue to make progress, we must pay attention to the simple safety steps we know can help keep our community safe. Please continue to practice 6-foot social distancing, frequent and thorough handwashing, and avoiding crowd situations. It is also so important to have a face mask available to wear in public spaces and around those outside of your household. Wearing a face covering or mask is an easy way to help protect yourself, your family, and all of our neighbors, and the current Safer at Home order and statewide mask requirement continue through March 5.

 

As we approach the active spring season, and we look forward to celebrating Alabama Arbor Week with you this February. Visit us online to register now for the Feb. 26 Ag & Stewardship Seminar, AL Native Trees for Your Yard, and stay tuned for details about our annual Seedling Giveaway. Then, don’t miss the Pike Road Arts Council’s Cloudscapes Art Show, which wraps up on Feb. 28. This virtual show is available on our website, as well as by appointment at the Pike Road Arts Center. In March, we are excited to welcome local businessmen and women to our first Lunch & Learn of 2021, Virtual Manners Matter, presented via webinar with Troy University Continuing Education & Outreach. Visit us online at www.pikeroad.us to learn about these events and more.

 

As a reminder, due to the ongoing COVID-19 challenge, Town facilities remain closed to public visitors. We want to emphasize that we continue to be ready and available to serve you, and our team is accessible via phone and email.  You can also find a variety of municipal resources on our website, www.pikeroad.us.

“Today, we want to say a special “Thank You” to the Montgomery City/County Emergency Management Agency, Baptist Health, Montgomery County, the City of Montgomery, ADPH, and so many more organizations and individuals who worked together to administer over 8,000 COVID-19 vaccinations during this week’s clinic. We are so appreciative of these efforts, which help protect the health of the greater Montgomery County community and help us move forward through the COVID-19 challenge.

 

As we continue into the spring, we are excited to see expanding access to the COVID-19 vaccine, and we appreciate your engagement and patience during this process. However, we want to recognize that COVID-19 is an ongoing challenge, and it is important for us to continue to pay attention to the precautions we know can help keep our community safe.

Thank you, Pike Road, for all you do to safely connect and engage in our community. Today, we had the pleasure of delivering hundreds of Valentines for Veterans cards that YOU contributed to the Central Alabama Veterans Health Care Systems. Now, veterans in the care of CAVHCS will receive a token of your appreciation love this Valentine’s Day! We hope you will tune in to the Feb. 16 edition of our monthly radio show, from 12 – 1 p.m. on WTXK 107.5 FM/1210 AM, to hear about all the exciting things coming up. Alabama Arbor Week is just around the corner, and our Ag & Stewardship Club is celebrating with a Native Trees seminar on Feb. 26 – visit www.pikeroad.us to register!

“Thank you, Pike Road, for the way you continue to safely engage and support one another. We are excited by the opportunities the coming spring season will offer, and your involvement makes it all possible. February is Black History Month, and we encourage you to explore the history that surrounds us in the River Region. From visiting the Mural Wall to learn about local history – including the contributions of Ms. Georgia Washington – to taking a virtual tour of the Rosa Parks Museum at Troy University, there are many resources available in our area to learn about the individuals and events that helped move us toward the lives we enjoy today.

 

We are thankful that access to the COVID-19 vaccine continues to expand, and we appreciate your patience as local health providers work with Alabama Public Health to administer these vaccines. In the meantime, we encourage you to please continue to take the simple precautions that we know can help keep our community safe. Social distancing, frequent and thorough handwashing, and avoiding crowd situations are very important. In addition, the current Safer at Home order and statewide mask requirement continue through March 5. It is important to have a face mask available to wear in public spaces and around those outside of your household. Wearing a face covering or mask is an easy way to help protect yourself, your family, and all of our neighbors.

 

Although our quality of life programming through the ENHANCE initiative remains mostly virtual, there are a variety of activities on the horizon! Through Feb. 12, we encourage you to participate in our annual Valentines for Veterans Card Drive. Show your appreciation for our local veterans by dropping off a handmade or store-bought card with a kind note at Town Hall or Founders Station all week. You can also print a card from www.pikeroad.us, or personalize the cards available outside of these locations. Alabama Arbor Week is just around the corner, and our Ag & Stewardship Club is celebrating with a Native Trees seminar on Feb. 16 – visit www.pikeroad.us to register!

January 29: A Note from Mayor Gordon Stone
Click here to view this update as a PDF.

"This week, Governor Kay Ivey and Dr. Scott Harris announced updates to the Safer at Home order, extending all requirements and guidelines through March 5, 2021. Thank you, Pike Road, for the safe, smart approach you have utilized throughout the ongoing COVID-19 challenge and allow the Safer at Home extension to serve as a reminder of the importance of these precautions. As communities across the country continue the vaccination process, it is still vitally important that we protect the health of ourselves and our neighbors until this process is completed. In order to continue enjoying the activities we love, we encourage everyone to remain dedicated to health and safety.

There are several simple precautions we know can make a difference. Please pay attention to social distancing, and maintain a 6-foot distance from those outside of your household. Practicing frequent and thorough handwashing and sanitation of high-traffic surfaces helps keep everyone healthy. Crowds and large gatherings pose a particular risk of the spread of COVID-19. Please avoid these situations whenever possible. In addition, it is vital to have a face mask available to wear in public and around those outside of your household. Wearing a face covering or mask is an easy way to help protect both yourself and others. The current Safer at Home order and statewide mask requirement continue through March 5. 

 

We look forward to safely engaging with you in a variety of ENHANCE initiative activities. Register now for the virtual Jan. 29 Happy Hostas Ag & Stewardship Workshop, and visit us online to explore the Arts Council’s Cloudscapes Art Show, which continues through Feb. 28. In addition, we invite you to join us in sharing our appreciation for our nation’s veterans, whose selfless service and sacrifice have allowed us to enjoy the freedoms we love and experiences like this week’s Inauguration. Drop off Valentine’s cards with a kind note for our local veterans at Town Hall and Founders Station beginning Monday, Jan. 25!

 

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 challenge, Town facilities will remain closed to public visitors. We want to emphasize that we continue to be ready and available to serve you, and our team is accessible via phone and email.  You can also find a variety of municipal resources on our website, www.pikeroad.us.
