It’s time for downtown Commerce’s annual spring cleaning and beautification effort.
Volunteers will gather at Spencer Park at 9 a.m. this Saturday to power wash sidewalks, clean out streetscape beds and plant flowers and shrubs in a project of the Downtown Development Authority.
With major support in both funding and labor from Southeast Toyota Distributors, the annual event is designed to enhance the appearance of public property from the Commerce Cultural Center to off-street parking areas.
A major focus will be bringing color to the city’s streetscape beds and other planted areas by planting annuals to supplement the perennials already in place. Volunteers will also pull weeds from planted areas in Spencer Park, remove leaves and other debris from off-street parking areas and clean mold off of the sign in front of the Commerce Cultural Center.
The project will also be supported by the Commerce High School Key Club, the Commerce Kiwanis Club and other groups. Southeast Toyota will cook hotdogs in the park for the volunteers.
