Nevada City's 3rd Annual City-wide Spring Cleaning

Once again I'm excited to announce our annual city wide spring cleaning that I organize with our local police department! It's one of the most invigorating and gratifying community undertakings... that makes a big difference for the rest of the year!

NCDIG, Nevada City Determined Improvement Group, will be undertaking its 3rd annual 2-day spring-cleaning called, Tuesday, April 11th and Wednesday, April 12th, 8am-1pm.

The City of Nevada City, the Nevada City Police, Fire Department, Public Works, non-profits, Hour Nevada County, Sierra Roots, the Nevada City Chamber of Commerce, Schools, students, service clubs, neighbors and downtown businesses will be pulling out their tools for two days for the undertaking.

The first Spring Madness was launched March of 2016 with approximately 175 volunteers. Once again this year, residents and business owners will be asked to step up and remove graffiti, repaint gas lamps, fire hydrants, and street curbs as well as weed-eat, remove trash, and clear hedges along sidewalks. The city of Nevada City will be providing tools and equipment.

Event organizers highly recommended that volunteers wear the 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.

Local Nevada City business, SOAP, is providing a special biodegradable orange-coconut cleaner to reduce its impacts of the run off into Deer Creek.

The check-in and staging area for volunteers will be located in the Chinese Parking Lot next to HAALo, 412 Commercial Street beginning at 7:30am. All volunteers are asked to check in at this location to sign release forms and for directions. The City will be providing breakfast snacks as well as coffee and tea.

Volunteers can sign up onto Nevada City’s brand new volunteer/event website:
