The Lincoln Boulevard Task Force (LBTF) has announced a Clean Up Event to help make Lincoln “Safe, Clean, Beautiful, and Green” on Saturday, November 1 from 9:30 amto noon.
The event titled, “Clean Sweep”, will build on the efforts of the LBTF on Lincoln that addresses the visual blight that defines “Stinkin’ Lincoln”.
The focus will be on specific sources of trash and debris, as well as an effort to remove weeds and debris along the public right of way.
The event will also provide businesses with feedback in the form of a Progress Report for each business; we will grade businesses on how they are doing to ensure that they embrace “Safe, Clean, Beautiful, and Green”.
Residents, businesses along Lincoln Boulevard, local schools, and members of neighborhood organizations adjacent to Lincoln are invited to celebrate the “Clean Sweep” by volunteering for the event.
Volunteers on November 1 be are asked to bring their own brooms, work gloves, clippers and trowels to pick up litter and other debris and pull weeds along sidewalks and tree wells of Lincoln from the 10 Freeway south to the Venice border at Ozone.
Additionally, volunteers should wear hats, sunblock, and bring water to drink. The City will provide plastic trash bags and disposable gloves for litter and weeds removal and will arrange for pick up of the refuse.
The event is produced in association with the Ocean Park Association, Borderline Neighborhood Group, Friends of Sunset Park, Pico Neighborhood Association, and Sustainable Works.org
To volunteer, contact Killeen Pilon at [email protected] or just show up.
