Planning for a Successful Community Cleanup
One of the greatest ways that you can get to instill a sense of community, pride and ownership in community members is through activities like a community cleanup. Consider these if at all you wish to achieve this end.
Talking of community cleanups, you need to know that tidying the community up is just a component of the whole for it involves a lot more than this. They are some of the activities that offer you such an opportunity to serve and give back to the community, that is the people and the place that has been home to you.
Now when thinking of these activites, note the fact that for them to turn out a success, you really need to have a solid plan going forward. Check out the following for some of the tips to help you plan and execute such a community cleanup that you and your neighbors will never forget.
Start by learning how you pick the project. In so far as the project goes, mark the fact that the choice of the right project will be such a sure motivator for the community members to come out in drones for the cleanup so organized and it should be one that actually tackles a specific problem that your community members at large happen to be familiar with, one that affects and touches them. Some of the community cleanup projects that you can think of and to help guide your line of thought would be such projects like planting projects, litter picking projects, beach cleanups and beautification projects. Just choose that sore area, one which you and your neighbors see nearly on a daily basis and choose to correct the mess there may be there. In your choice of the project, you need to as well be advised to consider limiting it to such projects that you will be able to attend to in the afternoon hours and at the same time, they should be such that will not call for much equipment. You need to as well be alive to the issue of city permits and as such choose one that doesn’t require such. In the event that it is a project that calls for city permits, then you need to make sure that these are sought in advance and are in place so as to avoid the cases where you may be so forced to reschedule the event.
Over and above the need to call your community members and mobilize your community members for the community cleanup, you need to have in place a sure plan going into it.
