NORWICH – The Norwich Business Improvement District will be holding its fourth annual downtown clean up day Saturday. The Main Street Sweep will begin at 8 a.m., and as always, volunteers are needed to help in the process.
BID Executive Director Pegi LoPresti explained the purpose of the Main Street Sweep is to do some spring cleaning in the downtown area. “We’ll be picking up trash, pulling weeds, washing windows in vacant store fronts and just generally sprucing up the downtown area,” LoPresti said.
Volunteers for the event will meet in the parking lot next to the Dollar Tree on South Broad in Norwich, where they will be split into groups and assigned work projects. “Our priority is North and South Broad Street and the main business districts first,” said LoPresti, “but our goal is to address the entire 12-block district. With enough volunteers, we will be able to do that.”
