Bunny gives kudos to NE volunteers

May 22, 2013

Once again, Historic Northeast neighbors did not disappoint. Last Saturday morning more than 100 neighborhood volunteers dedicated their time to making our community a cleaner and brighter place to live. New flowers were planted in the raised beds along Independence Avenue, litter and bulky trash were hauled to dumpsters at The Concourse and Budd Park, and an urban 4-H group helped paint benches along Gladstone Boulevard near The Concourse.

This newshound was nursing the mother of all viruses on Saturday but was out there in spirit. Neighborhood leaders are now developing a plan to work with multi-family property owners who regularly leave piles of trash at the curb for extended periods of time, which attract all manner of pillagers who leave the pile strewn from one end of the block to the other.

Hopefully the city’s Codes Department will follow suit and neighborhood leaders can make a dent in the trash issues that continue to plague our community. But for now, bask in the glow of a job well done, Northeast volunteers. A toast to you!
