HPD To Participate in Neighborhood Clean Up

April 22, 2005 -- This Saturday, April 23, 2005, join District B Council Member Carol Mims Galloway, Assistant Police Chief Brian Lumpkin, and other city officials in the second area City Council Clean-Up, or C3, initiative at Tidwell Park.

Mayor Bill White's office has partnered with City Council members, HPD's Neighborhood Protection Corps, and other city agencies to conduct monthly clean-ups in different council districts.

The first area clean-up, conducted last month in Council Member Toni Lawrence's District with the assistance of city employees and area residents, resulted in the removal of more than 500 bags of trash and 100 tires, as well as the clearing of several weeded lots. In addition, graffiti was painted over at several locations in the Spring Branch area.

The cooperative effort will be repeated monthly in a different council district. "Neighborhood clean-ups provide a perfect opportunity for city employees to work shoulder to shoulder with citizens and contribute to make Houston the cleanest and safest city in the nation," said Mayor White.

This weekend's event will kick off at 8 a.m. at Tidwell Park, 9720 Spaulding. Volunteers are encouraged to sign up by calling 713-839-8855.
