30th Avenue NE Cleanup this Sunday 9/23 9 a.m.-noon

East side of 30th Avenue NE, right-of-way for Calvary Cemetery


Neighbors surrounding 30th Avenue NE between NE 55th and Blakeley have put together a work party to clean up this busy street.   Several years ago, the City installed new sidewalks on the west side of the street, but the East side of the street is without curbs, gutters, or sidewalks, and has been plagued by garbage and neglect.

30th Avenue NE recently acquired no parking signs on the east side of the street.  The residents near 30th Avenue NE have been dealing with trash accumulation along the Calvary Cemetery right-of-way for many years, but have joined together to create this work party to beautify the street.  The hope is that giving this right-of-way some TLC will discourage folks from tossing their trash here, and give butterflies a place to visit.

Now is your chance to help your community clean up this street.

Gloves, safety vests, trash bags, litter grabbers, dustpans, & insurance will be provided by the City of Seattle.  People are asked to bring seeds and/or bulbs to plant.

Grateful Bread has donated pastries for the event.  Thank you GB!!

Meet at the corner of 53rd Street and 30th Avenue, Sunday September 23, 9 a.m. to noon.
