9/14/2013 - Citywide Front Porch Day, September 21

The Second Annual Front Porch Day will be held on September 21, 2013 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. On that day, the following seven Neighborhood Groups will be participating:

  • Crownbrook NA South End (Madison Ave.)
  • WOW NRZ Historic Hillside
  • East End NA Upper Fulton
  • Willow/Plaza NA Brookly
  • If you live in a participating neighborhood, call (203) 596-2240 for the phone number of the group's President.

Are you tired of seeing trash blow into your yard and tall grass and junk accumulate on your neighbors' front yard? Does your front porch need a little TLC...a repaired spindle or fresh coat of paint? If yes, then this Program was designed just for you. There is an organized effort to keep your neighborhoods clean and safe. The Front Porch brings attention to blighted properties, starts the dialog for remediation and supports neighbors helping neighbors to improve the appearance and value of their properties.

Volunteers will be available that day to work with you to freshen up your front porch or spruce up your yard if you are physically unable to do it yourself. Just call (203) 596-2240 for assistance and a volunteer(s) will be assigned to your home/street. You must pay for your own materials and it will help to have your own yard tools, as we will not have enough to provide them for everyone. 
All realtors and unassigned volunteers will meet at the Realtor Building, 161 North Main Street, downtown Waterbury, at 9:00 a.m.
