Update for April 14
Delridge residents showed for the 2012 Spring Cleaning event on April 14 to pick up garbage along Delridge Way S.W. and plant flowers in select locations.

The event was organized by North Delridge Neighborhood Council member Lisa Taylor-Whitley.

"I think it's important to show that you care about your neighborhood," she said. "I know that studies have shown that neighborhoods that are well kept have less crime and I know that is an issue in this neighborhood - crime and tagging and dumping. I think the neighbors who care about the neighborhood want to come out and show people, 'Hey, you can't do that here.' We take pride in this neighborhood, we love this neighborhood and that is why we are coming out today."

Press release from North Delridge Neighborhood Council

Please mark your calendars for the yearly “Spring Cleaning” of Delridge on April 14th from 10am-noon. Volunteers will meet at the Delridge Community Center, 4501 Delridge Way SW, and break into groups from there.

We will provide the bags and pickers while you will provide the labor to spruce up our neighborhood. We will be cleaning Delridge Way from Andover to Juneau, pruning around the “Welcome to Delridge” sign, and planting plants at the Community Center.

Please plan on joining us. Two hours of your time will make a visible difference in our neighborhood!
