Greenfield calls 2017 ‘Year of the Parks’
Councilmember starts major cleanup campaign
Councilmember David Greenfield, who has made renovation projects in his district a cornerstone of his tenure, is moving his efforts up a notch by launching an effort to clean and maintain local recreation areas.
Greenfield (D-Borough Park-Midwood-Bensonhurst) has dubbed 2017 “The Year of the Parks.”
Under the program, which will last throughout 2017, contracted employees will fan out through parks in Greenfield’s council district on a regular basis to remove litter, care for plants and do general maintenance work as needed.
“I am already in the process of fully renovating every single park in my district, but as that happens, it’s important that we don’t forget the importance of regular cleaning and maintenance,” Greenfield said. “People don’t want to take their children to dirty, unkempt parks. My new program will make sure that our park remains clean and litter-free.”
