Do It Yourself Connect Logo Have you been thinking about doing a few projects around the house, but stopped short, wondering what permits might be needed from the City? Maybe you’re thinking about re-landscaping the yard but are worried about costs, or how to get rid of the old materials when the work is done. Do-It-Yourself (DIY) Connect is a workshop led by a team of City employees who answer questions from residents about anything DIY.
