Diaper Drive

The City of Berkley Public Safety Department is teaming up with the MOMS Club of Berkley for a diaper drive to support children and families in need in southeastern Michigan.

During the season of giving, Berkley Public Safety Officers and the MOMS Club of Berkley will hold a diaper drive from December 1 through December 19. The donations will be delivered to the Judson Center; a nonprofit agency that provides services to children and adults impacted by abuse, neglect, autism, developmental disabilities and mental health challenges.

To participate in the drive, diapers may be dropped off during business hours at the Berkley Public Library, Community Center and at Cana Lutheran Church. Diapers may also be dropped off in the lobby of the Berkley Public Safety Department. This year’s goal is to collect and deliver at least 3,000 diapers to the Judson Center in Royal Oak, on December 20.

Harvard Road Project (Woodward to Cass) Update

UPDATE (11/7/16): the Department of Public Works, along with city engineers, conducted a walkthrough of the project with residents along Harvard, between Cass & Woodward on November 5, 2016. Click here to view the walkthrough agenda. If you would like to stay up to date on the project via email, please send an email to with "Harvard Road Project Updates" in the Subject field.

In July of 2016, City Council approved a design services contract for a water main replacement and road reconstruction project on Harvard Road from Woodward to Cass. The design phase has started and includes several components such as coordination with third-party utilities, topographic survey and other actions necessary to develop the plans and specifications required for permits and public bidding.

The scope of this project includes the removal and replacement of the existing asphalt road surface, new concrete curb and gutter, driveway approaches, sidewalk, drainage structures, tree replacements and new 8” public water mains.

By January 2017, the design phase (final plans and permits) should be complete and public bidding will occur shortly thereafter. Construction is tentatively scheduled to start in spring of 2017. While still very early in the process, the estimated total project costs are $2.3 million. The City Water Fund and Major Streets Fund will subsidize these improvements.

As you may know, homeowners are responsible for the entire sewer lead from the home to the City sewer on the north side of Harvard (including the connection). All residents in the area are encouraged to address any private sewer repairs before construction starts in 2017. By doing so, the cost of these repairs may be significantly lower as opposed to after the roadway is repaved. Contact a licensed plumber for details and note many plumbers can provide a video of the lead to assess condition.

DPW Tree Maintenance Program

The Department of Public Works will be evaluating trees in the city’s public right-of-ways. Representatives from J. H. Hart, the urban forestry company hired by the city, will be driving through Berkley, trimming city owned trees as needed. On occasion, the certified arborists may determine a tree is in poor condition and recommend its removal. Some of the older Silver Maple trees in Berkley have internal rot. This condition compromises the tree’s structural integrity and ultimately creates safety concerns. For more information on this process, contact the Department of Public Works at (248) 658-3490.
