49th Street Cleanup and Chiefs’ Chat
October 13 @ 8:15 am - 12:30 pm
Join Gulfport Mayor Sam Henderson and St. Petersburg Mayor Rick Kriseman as they host the 5th Annual Mayors’ 49th Street Cleanup on Saturday, October 13.
After the cleanup join Gulfport Police Chief Rob Vincent and St. Petersburg Police Chief Tony Holloway as they host the 4th Annual Chiefs’ Chat Community Forum. It’s an informal and relaxed way to learn more about how the two departments work together and it also provides an opportunity for residents to ask the chiefs questions.
The cleanup is about more than picking up litter. It is a celebration of community and it is about collaboration of the neighborhoods along 49th Street. Residents from all areas of both cities are encouraged to participate. This event affords all the opportunity to come out and meet neighbors, from both communities and while also making a difference! The communities of Gulfport and St. Petersburg should not be divided by anything more than four lanes of asphalt.
The event will feature community groups such as Chart 411, Keep Pinellas Beautiful, Tampa Bay Watch, LOCAL Shops 1 and others.
It takes place on the Tangerine Greenway on 49th Street South at Tangerine Avenue. Cleanup participants will be divided into four teams and will clean 49th Street and its adjacent alleys from the Pinellas Trail to Gulfport Blvd./22nd Avenue.
Registration and a light breakfast begins at 8:15 a.m., the Mayor’s Welcome at 9 a.m. The Cleanup begins at 9:15 a.m. and the Chiefs’ Chat starts at 10:30 a.m.
Please save the date and be a part of this great collaborative community event!
