Volunteers from BBA’s DAG Committee were joined by downtown businesses for a street clean up event on Friday May 11th. The group met at on the corner of Church and Cherry at 8:30 am. The weather was crisp and cool but sunny for the early morning clean up. Working their up and down Main street, volunteers swept, picked up trash and cigarette butts, and cleared litter out of tree grates. Covering both sides of Main street from South Winooski to Saint Paul Street, volunteers covered a large area over the course of an hour.
BBA’s DAG committee launched these seasonal clean up events to coincide with their Adopt Your Sidewalk campaign, an initiative designed by the committee to empower downtown business owners to take ownership of their “strip of Burlington”, and clean and maintain their sidewalk and facades. Now in its’ third year, the seasonal clean up events are a great way to rally business owners and staff, and put the group’s energy towards helping make Burlingtons downtown clean, safe and welcoming for all.
As a thank you to volunteers who participated in the clean up, CarShare VT gave out a special promotion for their service.
Thank you to everyone who joined us!
