April is Carpinteria Beautiful Month

Following a tradition established in 1992, the City of Carpinteria will recognize April as Carpinteria Beautiful Month. The Carpinteria City Council unanimously approved a proclamation to do so at its meeting on March 11. Throughout the month of April, Carpinteria Beautiful volunteers will continue their year-round efforts to remove graffiti and fill doggie bag dispensers, and the organization’s Adopt-a-Spotters and Trash Mob will redouble their already considerable efforts to keep Carpinteria litter-free.

The City urges all residents to make a personal commitment to enhance the beauty of their own properties and neighborhoods for the benefit and enjoyment of all. One opportunity for the community to get involved in beautification efforts citywide will be Carpinteria Beautiful’s annual Community Cleanup Day on Saturday, March 23, from 9 a.m to noon. Anyone interested in volunteering should meet at the Amtrak Parking Lot, 499 Linden Ave., to be assigned a location. Gloves, bags and trash pickers will be available, but we encourage you to bring your own reusable items.
