A Queen Anne neighborhood clean-up event will be held Saturday, February 12 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. in honor of Seattle’s 17th annual Neighbor Appreciation Day.
The Uptown Alliance’s decade-old Clean and Green event will have different out-door clean-up projects in Upper and Lower Queen Anne, such as raking and pruning and litter removal. The event kick-off will be held at Counterbalance Park with Deputy Mayor Darryl Smith giving opening remarks.
The event began to receive support from the City of Seattle last year, according to Neighborhood District Coordinator Christa Dumpys, and tools for the projects will be supplied by the Seattle Department of Parks and Recreation. In addition to the Uptown Alliance and the City of Seattle, the event is sponsored by the Church of Scientology Environmental Task Force and the Greater Queen Anne Chamber of Commerce.
