[ARCHIVED] Beautify Safely - The Mask-Up to Clean-Up Way

Mask up to clean up

“Mask Up to Clean Up,” the COVID-safe variation of “Team Up to Clean Up” City Council district events, begins November 21 with the first in a series of district dates when community members can help clean up neighborhoods or litter-prone areas of Las Cruces.

The City of Las Cruces Parks & Recreation Department’s Keep Las Cruces Beautiful (KLCB) will begin the next series of district cleanups in City Council District 1, represented by Mayor Pro Tem Kasandra Gandara, from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday, November 21.

With COVID-19 safety guidelines still in place, community members can do clean-ups with immediate family, in groups of five or fewer, or do individual clean-ups of their neighborhood as part of an initiative to have all residents join efforts toward maintaining the property, beginning with where they live. Other guidelines to follow are to wear face masks, practice social distancing, and wash hands regularly or use hand sanitizer. KLCB will provide supplies such as bags, gloves, and locations within the district.

Las Cruces Utilities Solid Waste will provide a roll-off container at 750 S. Espina St., at Valley View Park, for the Saturday event. The large container available for District 1 residents to use throughout the weekend. KLCB staff will have a supply station at that location during the event.

“Team Up to Clean Up!” is a beautification program, initiated in 2019, to help reverse the process of neighborhood deterioration and enhance the quality of life in the city. “Mask Up to Clean Up!” is a call to enlist residents, during this time of COVID, to voluntarily pitch in to clean up where they live, creating a cleaner, safer, and healthier environment.

Residents can find their district at las-cruces.org/DistrictMap.. The times are the same for each date. The schedule for cleanups is:

November 21, District 1 – Mayor Pro Tem Kasandra A. Gandara.

December 19, District 2 – Councilor Tessa Abeyta-Stuve.

January 23, District 3 – Councilor Gabriel Vasquez.

February 20, District 4 – Councilor Johana Bencomo.

March 20, District 5 – Councilor Gill M. Sorg.

April 17, District 6 – Councilor Yvonne M. Flores.
