May 11 and 12, 2019
Join your neighbors for our new Spring Spruce Up event to beautify our neighborhood and ensure accessibility for all. We invite Tangletown residents to clean and beautify their sidewalks and boulevards as a community on May 11th and 12th. We are almost certain Spring will have arrived, so get outside and say “Hello” to the neighbors you haven’t seen all winter!
Don’t put off planting that garden, trimming those bushes/trees, or sweeping up that winter sand. Commit to our Spring Spruce Up event and help ensure our neighborhood sparkles for the summer! Sign up now and you’ll receive free yard waste bags and helpful information like:
- Pollinator friendly, salt resistant, low water-use plants
- Plants appropriate for planters
- City rules for boulevard gardens
- Guidelines for improving accessibility for all residents
- Maintenance tips and suggestions
Register by May 8th and let’s start an annual community event that benefits everyone!
