A Neighborhood Cleanup is an effective way to work together as a neighborhood in order to instill pride in your property as well as your community. Annually the HAND Department sponsors Neighborhood Cleanups to neighborhoods on a competitive application process. Neighborhood Associations that have demonstrated through their applications the need and ability to conduct a successful clean-up are awarded a HAND sponsored Neighborhood Cleanup. A key factor is having enough volunteers and good communication within the neighborhood to make the event successful. The Neighborhood Cleanups can be held on one of the following Saturdays: April 6, 13, 27, May 4,11,18, 2019. The neighborhood organizes the event and provides all the volunteers, HAND provides much-needed dumpsters, Hazmat, chipper service, tire disposal, and safety vests.

2019 Applications due by Monday, March 4, 2019 by 4:00 p.m. in the HAND Office in City Hall, Room #130.
