The following news comes from the North End Beautification Committee.
The North End is one of Boston’s busiest districts, thanks to all the wonderful restaurants, cafés, shops and historic points of interest including the Freedom Trail, Old North Church, Paul Revere’s House, and Copp’s Hill Cemetery.
The North End Beautification Committee (NEBC) has developed a 12 week pilot program that will kick off on Memorial Day weekend. This pilot program will partner with Work, Inc. and Boston Public Works to beautify the streets throughout the North End. The primary goal of this program is to collect any litter on the sidewalks and street curbs and also to clean and wipe down the Big Belly Trash containers.
NEBC has hired two gentleman to kick off this pilot program beginning Memorial Day weekend. The hours that are designated for the cleanup are four hours on Saturday and four hours on Sunday. Memorial day weekend we scheduled Work, Inc. on Saturday 8:00am-Noon, Sunday 8:00am-Noon and Monday 8:00–Noon. If you see these gentleman working, please feel free to say hello and thank them for a job well done!
NEBC would like to thank MSA Mortgage Company and the North End Chamber of Commerce for sponsoring this pilot program.
In addition, the NEBC has worked with the Greenway Conservancy and City Councilor Sal LaMattina to install flower planters on Cross Street Plaza this weekend. Soon to come … tables and chairs!
