Spring Is Almost Here. Let's Talk Beautification.

Since spring is almost here and daylight hours are increasing, how will you spend your longer days?

Our Winchester Avenue Street Cleanups were very popular last year.  In 2013, we would like to continue and incorporate other beautification projects.  The Public Works Department and Livable City Initiative are also looking forward to assisting us with our cleanup efforts. 

If you would like to act as "cleanup captain" for your street or block; please send an email to newhallville.community.matters@gmail.com.

Thank you.
