Project scope

These funds would be used to pay for any materials or services necessary to make the Mountain View cleanup a safe and successful endeavor.

Project need

Additional funds required: $8,000 (annual). The MVCC and ACLT have been very active in private fundraising efforts, but are unable to bridge the gap to continue this vitally important event without municipal assistance. Funding (or in kind use) is requested for rental of front-end loader, lot fencing, and other expenses related to the Mountain View Spring Cleanup, an annual event that is essential to the health, safety, and well being of the entire Mountain View community. Local residents partner with nonprofits and private organizations to donate thousands of person-hours of hard work in cleaning up the neighborhood. The effort is more than just a beautification effort--the volunteers remove as much as 200 tons of potentially hazardous material, ranging from toxic waste and bio-hazards to broken glass, rusty metal, and old refrigerators from areas where children play and members of the community recreate. The Mountain View Cleanup gives people pride and a sense of ownership in the well-being of their neighborhood.

Project status

This project has received funding in every recent year, and is likely not possible without a state grant or municipal funding assistance, which has allowed this event to happen for the past 25 years.
