Spring cleaning program encourages residents to get involved in their neighborhoods

Mayor Martin J. Walsh announced the 2017 program for "Love Your Block," a high-impact spring cleaning program that encourages residents to improve their neighborhoods over the course of three weekends. Spring cleaning activities include community gardens, pocket parks, public schools and sidewalks. Love Your Block, previously known as Boston Shines, will now include year-round cleanups, applications for innovative beautification mini-grants and new uses for City-provided tool sheds.

"When residents take pride in their neighborhoods, Boston becomes a better City for all," said Mayor Walsh. "I encourage residents to participate in Love Your Block, and do their part to keep our City a beautiful, friendly and welcoming place for residents and visitors alike."
