Local residents are being invited to help spruce up a section of the downtown this weekend.
Clean, Green and Beautiful North Bay is organizing a two-day cleanup on Saturday, July 23 and Sunday, July 24.
The focus is on removing weeds from planters, sidewalks, curbs and other cracks along Algonquin Avenue from Worthington Street West to Oak Street West.
It’s part of an ongoing effort to mobilize the community ahead of North Bay’s planned participation next year in Communities in Bloom.
“These sorts of events help to foster community pride, build partnerships and raise awareness about the importance of keeping our City clean, green and beautiful,” says Hariett Madigan, Chair of Clean, Green, Beautiful North Bay. “Everyone is encouraged to take part.”
Individuals and groups interested in pitching in for an hour are asked to register and to choose from a specified time at: https://forms.gle/PkxmVhDnmFNs3c3v5
Algonquin Avenue, between Worthington and Cassells streets, will be closed for the cleanup on Saturday, July 23.
Bags will be supplied.
The clean-up, which will run from 8 am to 1 pm on both days, is being supported by the City of North Bay, the North Bay-Mattawa Conservation Authority and a number of other community groups and organizations.
