At around 10:30am we’ll send some people over to the Stokes Avenue Park (1556 Stokes Ave) where we need to finish building the fence, spread mulch, install edging around the front bed, build a raised bed, and install the new Stokes Ave Park sign.

It’s advisable to bring gloves, water, and sunscreen to protect yourself, and rakes and shovles to help with the projects. Thanks!

Stokes Avenue Park Fence Construction

April Clean-Up Month Photos

The Westview Community Organization held a successful kick-off to the “April Clean-Up Month.” Neighbors came together on Saturday, April 7, 2012, to tackle two tasks:

One team roamed the streets to collect tires that have been dumped throughout the neighborhood. Thanks to Liberty Tire Recycling, the 100 collected tires (!) will no longer be littering the Westview neighborhood.

The second team set out to start constructing a picket fence around the new Stokes Avenue Community Park (or at least park to be!). Thanks to the “NPU-T” grant the neighborhood was able to fund a picket fence. The fence is yet to be completed, but good progress has been made.

Thanks to all the volunteers who made it out! We hope to see you out for the next two clean-up days on Saturday, April 14, and Saturday, April 21.
