It only takes a couple of minutes to make the City better.
From residents to business owners, we all see it. Garbage is strewn about the streets and sidewalks, trashcans overflow, vacant lots are overgrown, weeds grow wild at the bottom of light posts, sewer grates are covered in leaves, & cobwebs are everywhere.
It’s not just noticeable in one place, one neighborhood, or one district. Every part of the City lacks maintenance—Riverfront to Allison Hill, Paxton Street to Italian Lake, along the City’s main corridors and in its miles of alleyways.
So, who’s going to do it, Harrisburg? Who is going to tend to the sidewalks and the lots, to the parks and the basketball courts, to the tree wells andthe trashy corners?
The answer is us.
By just tidying up what we can handle on our own, we establish a habit that becomes the city’s pride.
2Minute Tuesday. It’s a call to action. It’s a campaign of civic duty and business practice. It’s a way for the people of the region to work together to help fix the City of Harrisburg. Two minutes is all it takes. If every resident and business takes a couple of minutes once a week to be more engaged in maintaining the city, the city will be a cleaner better, and safer place for anyone and everyone to live, work, and play.
As it is now, if we don’t do it, then the rubbish will stick in stoop corners and cobwebs will gather giving the whole city the appearance of being unkempt, disheveled, and in demise.
By just taking two minutes on a Tuesday, we can make a difference. The City of Harrisburg will improve and it will be because of us and our efforts to clean up, sweep up, and tidy up this place.
Our City, Our Concern!
