​​On July 9, our first clean up was at the corner of Chester Avenue & Third Street

The NeatStreets crew on Chesapeake & Burnside on September 10.

Join us for fun and some satisfying work right in YOUR neighborhood.
​In JUST ONE HOUR we can accomplish a lot!

And note that we do all the weeding by hand and with tools, without harmful chemicals.

                     BEFORE                                                  AFTER

  • We will work in groups, one day per week, for about an hour cleaning a different block in Eastport from curb to curb.
  • First, we'll ask neighbors to move cars off the block, then we will close off the street for about an hour, and we will sweep, pull weeds, paint red curbs as needed, pick up trash, and note broken curbs or sidewalks and report them to the City. 
  • We will go block by block all spring, summer, and fall as long as we have enough volunteers. Kids can help too.

On July 16, we worked on Fourth Street. Look at the progress we made (above) in just an hour:

The bigger gatherings will be held on Mondays at 7 p.m. during July and August. The ability to sweep, shovel up debris or paint is pretty much all you will need for this area. NeatStreets vests will be provided for all volunteers. There will be some extra tools on site but if you have a favorite pair of gloves, broom or square point shovel, feel free to bring them along.


Here's how it works:

To sign up, send your name, address and phone number to neatstreets@eastportcivic.org.
 
The more volunteers we get, the easier, faster and more fun it will be! 


You do not need to commit to each week... but we'd like to get 100 or so people that we can count on so sign up now.


Donations to the Eastport NeatStreets program are most welcome!
