Saturday morning brought a group of neighbors together for the annual Spring cleanup of our neighborhood triangle park, 12th Street/Michigan Avenue/Shepherd Street. DPW sent small dump truck promptly at 8a.m. to deliver compost, and DPW was equally diligent picking up the bagged debris and tree cuttings at day’s end.
Efforts focused on the area along the 12th Street bus-stop and the flower bed near Michigan and Shepherd. However, all of the trees received compost. With all of the progress of past years near the formerly overgrown bus-stop, neighbors were able to focus on the evergreen trees and bushes, also toward the corner of Michigan and Shepherd. Much of the undergrowth was raked out and bagged.
