Hundreds expected to help with Taylorsville spring cleaning
Taylorsville will tackle its biggest service event ever on Saturday with a citywide clean-up. City leaders estimate that more than 800 volunteers will help spruce up parks, trails, streets and neighborhoods.
Civic groups, churches, groups, businesses and individuals will take part in the project. Girl Scout Troop 2532, which got help from the city after its cookie money was stolen, is participating.
Participants are meeting between 7 and 8 a.m. for registration and breakfast at the UDOT north parking lot, 4501 S. 2700 West. The service projects will run from 8 a.m. to noon, when lunch will be provided at the parking lot for volunteers.
All ages can participate. The projects include a Jordan River clean-up, neighborhood and park beautification, and community garden plantings. Activities for kids include building bird houses to hang along the river and decorating the tunnel at the river and 4500 South.
The event is being sponsored by the city and Comcast Cares Day, which is providing the meals. Visit http://www.taylorsvilleut.gov for more information and to register. Registration also will be taken from 7 to 8 a.m. on Saturday.
