Beauty is in the Eye of the Community
Join City Officials in Annual Cleanup Event
February 26, 2014
This Saturday, the City of Tallahassee will partner with residents and churches in the South City community to host the 19th annual Super-Clean Sweep in their neighborhood. Tallahassee residents are invited to participate in the cleanup event, joining members of the City Commission, the City's Leadership Team and other City staff in helping to beautify the south side community. Super-Clean Sweep is held under the auspices of Keep Tallahassee-Leon County Beautiful, which is the local effort in support of Keep America Beautiful's Great American Cleanup.
The cleanup event will take place from 8:30 a.m. to noon on Saturday. This year the event will cover an area surrounded by East Magnolia Drive, Dozier Drive, Orange Avenue and South Meridian Street. Volunteers will meet at Friendship Primitive Baptist Church, located at 700 Putnam Drive (traveling South on Monroe, make a left on Magnolia Drive; right onto Dantzler Drive; the church is located at the corner of Dantzler and Putnam drives).
Following the cleanup, volunteers will enjoy a healthy lunch at Friendship Primitive Baptist Church, arranged by the Community Nutrition Project, a collaboration of Whole Child Leon, FSU College of Food Science and Friendship Primitive Baptist Church. At 1 p.m., a community meeting will be held at the church, with City management and neighborhood residents to share updates and information on crime reduction efforts, sidewalks and litter control, stormwater, street lighting Project REACH, code enforcement and opportunities for community gardens.
