Covering hundreds of miles of downtown streets, sidewalks, and alleyways, your Downtown Clean & Green Team collected more than 301 barrels of litter and debris, eliminated hundreds of instances of graffiti and vandalism, and kept pedestrian walkways and intersections clear of ice and snow, all while acting as street ambassadors to our average daily downtown population of more than 21,000 people!
Through the City of Fort Wayne’s allocation of capital improvement funding, the DID was able to provide Downtown Fort Wayne with 8 new multiuse recycling receptacles, 110 new holiday banners, 24 new holiday wreaths, and 20 new streetscape planters. We were pleased to work with The City of Fort Wayne’s Divisions of Community Development, Traffic Operations, and Solid Waste on the placement and installation of these items. (Caption Recycling Photo) Community response to the new Multiuse Streetscape Recycling Program was overwhelming and we look forward to working with the City of Fort Wayne on strategic capital improvement projects in 2013.
