Seattle, WA – September, 26 2007 – Capitol Hill Chamber of Commerce Announces the Fall Capitol Hill Street Sweep to take place on Saturday October 13, 2007
-- The Capitol Hill Street Sweep is a community clean-up by volunteers and CHCC members. The quarterly sweep will entail graffiti removal, removing outdated posters from light poles, sweeping up litter and window cleaning. The Jump Start Event kicked off the overall improvement of Broadway one year ago. This fall’s Sweep will expand the cleaning to the Pike/Pine corridor starting South of Cal Anderson park at 12th avenue and continuing West down Pike and Pine until 12pm. The CHCC would eventually like to include all of Capitol Hill’s business districts in future sweeps. Join with our community volunteers and Capitol Hill merchants to sweep the sidewalks and clean Capitol Hill’s storefronts. Pre-registration is not required to volunteer.
“The Capitol Hill Chamber’s Street Sweep will be a great opportunity for neighbors and business owners to enjoy a morning of cleaning up Capitol Hill while having some fun and good food too. Just like the Clean Sweep and Jump Start events, everyone contributes to the improvement and vibrancy of Capitol Hill by volunteering a few hours.” – Denise Harnly, Associate Director, Seattle Neighborhood Group
