Neighborhood Blitz This Saturday

On Saturday, June 18th, City agencies will be out in full force helping to clean up the neighborhood. You can help just by properly placing your bulky trash items in the alley, cleaning up trash on your street, or clearing out overgrown weeds in your alley. The Forestry, Streets, and Refuse Departments will be out and about in the 20th and 25th Wards to help and make extra pickups.

There will also be additional police on the street, as well as representatives from the City’s PIER Program knocking on doors. They will be trying to engage and keep contact with neighbors and better assess the needs of neighborhoods.

Additionally there will be six City Service hubs set up throughout the neighborhood at the following locations:

  • Marquette Park (near the pool)
  • 2700 Keokuk
  • 3700-3800 Keokuk
  • 3700-3800 Neosho
  • 4500 Virginia
  • 3500 Bingham

Residents can go to those locations if they have any questions or concerns Most staff and NISs will be located at Marquette Park. Operation Brightside will also be at Marquette Park next to the pool with cleanup equipment such as shovels and rakes to loan.

At 1pm at Marquette Park there will a BBQ for volunteers, City staff, and the community sponsored by Incarnate Word Foundation and  the Thomas Dunn Learning Center.
