Thursday morning, BBA Members along with Mayor Miro Weinberger and Public Works Director Chapin Spencer, took part in the BBA’s second annual Adopt Your Sidewalk Downtown Cleanup.
The group went to work on Cherry Street, sweeping up dirt and litter that had built up on one of downtown Burlington’s busy streets.
This is the second year in a row that the BBA has organized this event as part of its Adopt Your Sidewalk program, a grassroots effort where local businesses pledge to clean and maintain the sidewalk in around them. The mission is to create a downtown that is as welcoming to residents and visitors as possible.
“The success of our downtown is a result of the hard work of many individuals and organizations working together, and the BBA’s Adopt Your Sidewalk is another great example of this type of collaboration.” Said Mayor Weinberger. “It is exciting to see business owners come out and work together to improve the look and feel of our sidewalks for everyone to enjoy.”
