Clean up activities scheduled throughout the day include hosing down Main Street sidewalks, washing windows, picking up trash, and cleaning up and weeding the flower beds along Main Street and in Veteran’s Square.
“I would like to encourage the downtown businesses to join us by cleaning up the areas around their storefronts. If every business would sweep their sidewalks, wash their windows and pick up trash on a regular basis, it would be a tremendous help to our downtown area. This is especially important if there is an empty storefront close by,” added Dolan.
Other plans to improve the look of Main Street include an ongoing litter pick up program which will begin the later in April using community volunteers. Fundraising through the Downtown Bradford Revitalization Corporation is currently still in progress to raise money for the hanging baskets that are hung every summer within the historic district. “People in the community have been tremendously supportive”, said Dolan. “It is wonderful to see so many people work together to make a difference.”
