Thank you for volunteering with us on Saturday to work along the Frankfort Avenue corridor between Mellwood and Story Avenues. We worked to clear the sidewalk, clean sewer grates, clear debris that has accumulated along the side of the road, trim trees, mulch tree wells, weed and pick-up litter. It was an extremely successful event, and we couldn’t have done it without your help! Click here to check out the photos from the event, and watch for more improvements along this stretch of the road in the coming months.

Mark your calendars for Saturday, October 22nd for a cleanup of Frankfort Avenue between Mellwood and Story Avenues in the Butchertown Neighborhood. Volunteers should plan to meet at 8:30 a.m. at Frankfort and Mellwood for coffee and breakfast sandwiches, and the cleanup will officially begin at 9:00 a.m. We’ll supply bags, gloves, and t-shirts on a first-come, first-served basis. We’ll work to remove overgrowth, mulch, and pick up litter along Frankfort Avenue. Please contact the office if you have any questions at 574-1109 or email Let’s have a big crowd making D9 a little cleaner!
