clean streets initiative

An initiative led by our community partners; Friends of Mosholu Parkland (FOMP). Working with store owners and residents FOMP aims to make the everyday shopping experience more enjoyable by keeping our commercial streets clean. Educating merchants on their cleaning responsibilities to avoid fines and summons, while working with the community to ensure less littering and share volunteer opportunities all contributes to the sustainability of this cleaning initiative.
