This is where the Post Office and the Civic Center are both located. Phyllis and Pelly alternate shifts here however they both work at the same time if you have guests visiting. Make sure to have your gates open if you want all features in this area accessible.
The Message Board located here is very useful for checking out notifications from your co-villagers and writing messages to your roommates. Keep your heads up as there are important posts here that you might not want to miss. Weather forecasts, villagers' messages, and special event details are found here. Notices are replaced by newer ones so check this board as frequently as you can.
You can also throw away unnecessary items in the Recycle Bin located here. Trash gets recycled at exactly 6:00AM during Mondays and Thursdays. Recycled items can be kept as much as you can, including items dumped by your fellow villagers.
