Concordia Alley Cleanup Event – April 11th

Just getting going with your alley project? If you’re in the Concordia Neighborhood, there’s a great opportunity to get help cleaning your alley on April 11th. Details from Concordia Neighborhood Association’s Land Use Chair Garlynn Woodsong below…

Hi folks,

We’re lining up an alley cleanup event for the alleys of Concordia for Saturday, April 11th from 10am to 12:30pm.

The meetup place will be at the intersection of Emerson Street and the 28th/29th Alley (between Killingsworth and Sumner). We will fan out from there to pick up trash in as many alleys as we have volunteers to reach.

This will be a day of service for students from Concordia University, but we have also asked SOLVE to be involved.

We would love to have neighbors be involved, as well as anybody else interested in alleys.

If you live on an alley, please contact Garlynn at to find out how you can be involved.

This is a good chance to talk alleys, begin the visioning conversation about what else could happen, as well as pick up the trash.

Please spread the word, and let me know if you have any questions, comments, or concerns.



Alley Cleanup Recap

The alley cleanup was a huge success and we all want to thank the Concordia University students for their hard work and persevering through the rain. We spoke to many residents and they were blown away by having so many young adults volunteering to improve the neighborhood. We also want to thank SOLVE and Garlynn Woodsong from the Concordia Neighborhood Association who organized the event. Here’s some pictures of the event for those who weren’t able to make it. Contact Garlynn if you want to know how to be involved in future cleanups.
