Spruce up the Springs: ONEN Neighborhood Cleanup

Spruce up the Springs

ONEN Neighborhood Cleanup

As part of the city wide Spruce up the Springs effort, ONEN is hosting a cleanup in our neighborhood Saturday Sept 15th from 7:30-11:30 AM. We will be concentrating on Uintah, from Wahsatch to M.V.P., Shooks run trail from Uintah to Lilac, and Nevada from Uintah to Lilac.   We will be making sure all storm drains and gutters are free of debris and weeds.  That will make sure our roads drain properly and limit the pollution getting into our waterways. We will take care to recycle all that we can.

We will assemble at 222 East San Miguel for coffee, donuts and instructions at 7:30 AM (If you are late just find us in the neighborhood or contact Vic).

Bring work gloves, brooms, dust pans, sunglasses and water. We will have trash bags.

Contact Vic Appugliese with any questions, 719-290-2039president@oldnorthend.org.  Anybody that needs community service credit for school or for the city can bring their forms to be signed.

If you can’t make it to the organized effort, we are asking all neighbors to get out at some point this weekend and hit the streets/alleys closest to your house. Whether you are out doing yard work or on a walk pick up any piece of trash you see!!! Every little bit helps keep our neighborhood beautiful!
