Lincoln Boulevard Task Force To Clean Up As Part Of Earth Day Celebrations:

The Lincoln Boulevard Task Force has announce members will host an Earth Day Clean Up Event to help make Lincoln “Safe, Clean, Beautiful, and Green” later this month.

Earth Day (officially on April 22) will be celebrated on Lincoln on Saturday, April 20 from 11 am to 2 pm, with multiple festivities to continue during and after the clean up.

This event was initiated by Killeen Pilon, a Task Force volunteer, who will serve as the Event Project Manager (volunteers will be asked to contact Killeen directly at earthday@opa-sm.org) to fill a variety of roles including help prior to the event, as well as coordination of volunteers during the event.

This event will be part of “Beautify Lincoln,” under the direction of Evan Meyer, an Ocean Park Association Board member and Chair of the Streetscape Subcommittee of the Task Force.

Meyer is the driving force behind the murals completed on the exterior of the Novel Café, Metropolitan Cleaners, and many others between Pico and Ocean Park Boulevard; he believes that “art is the beginning of bringing life to a neglected area and the thing that can create change in people’s perception of the area most quickly.”

The Task Force’s goal is to facilitate the transformation of Lincoln into an attractive, pedestrian-friendly, neighborhood-serving street that reflects the needs and desires of the neighborhood residents and local businesses.

“As we are all painfully aware, Lincoln needs a spring cleaning – perhaps a first ever event to engage the entire community to address the weeds and trash that were one of the top three issues according to the recent resident survey results presented by the Task Force,” organizers say.

“We encourage residents, businesses along Lincoln Boulevard, local schools, and members of four neighborhood organizations contiguous to Lincoln to celebrate Earth Day by volunteering for three hours to clean up of the street.”

Volunteers on April 20 will be asked to bring their own brooms, work gloves, clippers and trowels to pick up litter and other debris and pull weeds along the sidewalks and grass strips of Lincoln from the 10 Freeway south to the Venice border at Ozone. The City will provide plastic bags for litter/debris and weeds and will arrange for pick up of the refuse.

This event will not be “all work and no play.” In addition to having six teams removing trash and weeds on both sides of Lincoln there will be live entertainment, music, and a variety of art events along Lincoln ranging from chalk sidewalk art to painting of murals, and an after party.

Participating businesses currently include: McDonalds, Santino’s, Novel Café, Tommy’s Burgers (mural painting), TRiP (mural painting and after party – 21 and older only), and Lincoln Pipe and Plumbing Supply.
