Nevada City’s fifth annual city-wide spring cleaning set

The City of Nevada City holding its fifth annual spring-cleaning from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on April 16, based out of the Parking Lot at 412 Commercial St., according to a release.

The City of Nevada City, the Nevada City Police, Fire Department, Public Works, nonprofits, Hour Nevada County, the Nevada City Chamber of Commerce, service clubs, neighbors and downtown businesses will be joining in the mass cleaning of downtown Nevada City. In addition this year, event leaders also hope to focus on fuel load reduction around a few key areas of Nevada City.

City leaders encourage residents and business owners to step up and remove graffiti/stickers, repaint gas lamps, curbs, benches, clean sidewalks, fire hydrants and street curbs as well as weed-eat, remove trash and clear hedges along sidewalks. The city will provide tools and equipment.

Event organizers recommended volunteers wear appropriate clothing and bring the tools for the type of jobs they would like to undertake, i.e. paint or scrub brushes, pruning shears, rakes, brooms, buckets, paint trays and rollers, etc. Though tools and equipment will be provided it is first come, first serve.

The check-in begins at 7:30 a.m. All volunteers are asked to check in at the parking lot to sign release forms and for directions. The city will provide breakfast snacks as well as coffee and tea.

There is no need to sign up unless you are interested in being on the fuel load reduction team. In that case contact Reinette Senum, Spring Cleaning organizer at
