River City Company, Chattanooga Neighborhood Enterprise and other local partners have teamed up to continue the efforts of the Clean & Green program to encourage and engage downtown neighborhoods, businesses, organizations, workers and patrons to take action to keep our downtown community clean and safe. We do this by recruiting volunteer teams to come out on our designated clean up days and take on major eyesore projects. The end result is a day filled with civic service by hundreds of volunteers, and a more beautiful, cleaner and safer downtown.
On April 6, River City Company and CNE, along with partner organizations, hope to host the largest clean-up day this city has ever seen. Our goal is to recruit 1,000 volunteers to dedicate 4 hours of their time to cleaning up downtown districts and neighborhoods.
The sky is the limit when it comes to the needs of our downtown, but some prime examples for volunteer work is: graffiti removal, trash pickup, pressure washing, beautification projects, neighborhood clean-up, vacant building clean-up, etc.
Our goal is to create the largest downtown clean-up possible! Please join us in making that happen!
Currently, the City of Chattanooga monitors our streets, but there is still work to be done.
We have been hosting Clean & Green day since April 2011. Over the two years that Clean & Green has occurred, over 3,000 bags of trash have been collected; graffiti has been removed from over 100 buildings and monuments; 55 city blocks have been cleaned multiple times; downtown greenery has been tended to; and problems with city infrastructure like vandalism, potholes, and damaged bus stops have been reported.
There are so many reasons to support this cause:
- If you live downtown, support this cause to help keep your neighborhood clean and safe
- If you work downtown, support this cause to help keep your work environment clean and safe
-If you are in support of driving economic development to our downtown, please support this cause because a cleaner, safer downtown means a place where we can create more jobs, house more people and creative a thriving, exciting environment
-If you want Chattanooga to have an overall clean, safe and exciting downtown where the possibilities are endless, please support this cause
Downtown neighborhoods and businesses including start ups, mom & pop shops and restaurants. Urban communities create a higher economic impact on a city's bottomline more than suburban areas. Artists, young professionals and overall downtown patrons directly are affected from this program as they are given a higher quality of life. A cleaner, safer downtown also improves our tourism rates, and if you didn't know, tourism is the number one industry and job provider in our city.
