HSLQ 2012 Spring Cleanup
Each Spring, Friends of HSLQ walk the streets of Huntington Station to sweep, weed and pick up litter. Over a dozen Friends of HSLQ joined our efforts in 2011. The purpose of the Spring Cleanup is not only to clean the streets but to create a sense of pride in community. While walking the streets, Friends speak to business and land owners as well as residents about the importance of keeping a neat and well kept sidewalk. We encourage business owners to keep their storefronts free of weeds and litter.
HSLQ posted placards asking to "Keep our Streets Clean" in front of several businesses in the community. We speak to tenants about the same issues because we all would like to see a cleaner Huntington Station. In 2011, we reached out to members of the Business Improvement District(the BID) many of which participated in this years Cleanup.
Future initiatives include educating business and property owners of town grants to help them improve their store fronts. HSLQ strives to help community owners and residents change the canvas of Huntington Station.
