Beautification Crew Gets Ready for Fall
Fall is coming and the volunteers of the BAC neighborhood beautification crew are getting ready for a regular cleaning and planting cadence to keep our neighborhood infrastructure safe and looking good. If you’d like to help out, email us.
They met this past Saturday, September 2, 2023 at the SE 9th Street Overpass/SE Powell Skybridge to remove tree and other litter, prune overgrowth, and repair damage done by campers.
The crew discovered additional sidewalk masquerading as a planted area on the north side of the bridge, mirroring their discovery on the south side of the bridge last year (see SE 9th Street Overpass Cleanup). They got the bridge surface cleaned and swept for pedestrians and cyclists, cleared off the sidewalks, and prepared for planting an area burned last year after campers were swept from the location. The BAC may officially adopt the area from ODOT, which will be discussed at a future board meeting.
We publish a weekly email update and bimonthly printed newsletters that are delivered to every door in the neighborhood by volunteers.
