“Volunteering for Clean & Clear we hope will become a staple for residents, visitors and business owners,” James Little, Neighborhood District Manager for REV Birmingham, said. “There are always many projects and needs to tackle … and we hope to see how much our community can get done during these events.”
“It’s a great opportunity for area residents, visitors and businesses to explore the area while giving some TLC, “Little said. “Also, if anyone in the community notices a troublesome spot—litter, graffiti, etc.—we can add it to the list to address during the next during Clean & Clear.”
We hope that beautification efforts like this will help to create a higher quality of life by attracting visitors, residents, reduce crime, encourage new businesses, new residents and create pride in neighborhood that we live, work and worship.
