New Britain Downtown District Clean Campaign
The New Britain Downtown District has initiated a “BEEautiful New Britain” campaign which sets goals of a clean and beautiful Downtown. Each year this committee and the Public Works department sponsor a “Clean Up” day in Downtown in conjunction with volunteer organizations like Chrysalis Center, New Britain High School Interact Club, and the New Britain Police Explorers. The committee, under the direction of Justine Moriarty, has established a “Tidy Town Award” to be given to members of our community who take great pride in maintaining their properties and benefitting the overall appearance of our Downtown.
The committee was recently awarded a grant from the Coca-Cola “Keep America Beautiful” foundation. This money will be used to purchase cigarette receptacles to be distributed throughout Downtown New Britain during the spring. Work is currently being done on a flower pot program to be launched later in the year.
