Stay in the Loop

Service Saturday Is Back–October 10th!

We’re giving you more chances to get out, meet your neighbors and help beautify the community with our latest Service Saturday, October 10th.

The new item this month is the Tree Census, where you can help determine where the Park Board will plant dozens more trees in the North Loop.

Here’s the schedule:

9:00 Litter Pickup — Meet outside Corner Coffee, 514 North 3rd Street. We’ll provide the bags and gloves, and you’ll pick a part of the neighborhood to clear away some of that stray litter.

10:00 Park Clearing — Meet near the playground at James I Rice Park, West River Parkway and 4th Avenue North. We’ll provide gloves and tools and steer you toward some invasive vines that need to come down as well as other cleanup tasks along the river.

10:00-noon Voter Registration — If you know someone who hasn’t registered to vote yet, get them to the playground at James I Rice Park. We’ll get them all signed up and ready to take part in this very important election.

11:00 Tree Census — Meet at Corner Coffee, 514 North 3rd Street, where you’ll get easy instruction on how to use a texting platform on your phone to notify the Park Board of open spots where trees could be planted as well as spots where trees have died and need to be replaced.
