I applaud Kevin Hall for taking it upon himself to organize a litter cleanup event to rally his friends to lend a hand to take care of a problem. He chose the pedestrian bridge area going over Whatcom Creek between Ohio St and Railroad Ave (near Wander Brewery).
Sunday, February 21st
9:00 am – 12:00 pm
The litter disgusts me daily. It’s unfortunately part of a larger problem with homelessness and other societal issues that our community is contending with continually.
Please join me, my daughter, friends and help Kevin out. Information below is his invitation.
Put the Facebook Event on your calendar.
What better way to celebrate a beautiful winter Sunday in Bellingham than to show your love to your city, environment, and community by pitching in on a way past-due cleanup effort.
The pedestrian bridge area going over Whatcom Creek between Ohio St and Railroad Ave (near Wander) is getting out of control with litter, vagrants, drugs, and loitering.
This is our first of a series of relentless efforts to take our clean, wholesome beautiful city back.
Please take a trip through this area in the next few days and get an idea of what you can contribute.
Trash bags, gloves, pressure washer, scrub brushes, anything you can think of to bring to help clean this dump up. If you don’t have anything then bring yourself.
We will hit it hard and heavy from 9:00 am -12:00 pm, should be enough time to make that zone sparkle.
Measures to keep it this way are being discussed. Any feedback, ideas, solutions, or general help is always welcome and appreciated.
Time to clean up our Bellinghome.
