Get Involved With Neighborhood Spring Clean

The Laurelhurst Community Club (LCC) recently published information about the City's yearly Spring Clean in its newsletter.

The Spring Clean is sponsored by Seattle Public Utilities along with Seattle Parks and Recreation, Department of Neighborhoods, and Department of Transportation.

Residents can use this form to sign up and receive City support to clean up an area in the City.

Past projects in the neighborhood have included weeding work parties around the neighborhood including Waterway #1, a parcel of waterfront property located where Northeast 35 Street meets 43rd Avenue Northeast. Long ago it was used as a boat launch for one of Seattle’s mosquito fleet ferries, the Laurelhurst Launch, which shuttled folks from Laurelhurst to Madison Park and back. Now it is a public access to bserve nature, walk dogs, and launch non-motorized boats.

Other past neighborhood work parties included sprucing up traffic circles, medians or other public space in the Town of Yesler area, median on the Boulevard, pedestrian island at the corner of NE 41st and Surber Drive.

The LCC newsletter article said:
During April and May, Seattle’s Spring Clean cleanup program will be in full swing. Projects include litter pickups, removal of invasive plants such as English ivy, weeding and general upkeep of traffic circles and planting strips, storm drain stenciling, and graffiti removal. In past years neighbors rolled up their sleeves and worked on clean-up projects for traffic circles, street ends, pedestrian islands, and other work parties. Spring Clean participants can receive free resources from Seattle Public Utilities, including bags, gloves, safety vests, transfer station passes, and waste pick ups.
