WEST CENTRAL NEIGHBORHOOD
Neighborhood Night Out is an annual event that is designed to heighten crime prevention awareness while strengthening neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships. Neighborhood residents are encouraged to turn on their porch lights during the evening as a show of unity. Other activities include cookouts, visits from police officers, informational booths, children’s games and activities, and live music. Neighborhood Night Out is the result of a partnership between Community Partnership of the Ozarks, the Springfield Police Department, the City of Springfield, the Springfield-Greene County Park Board, and neighborhood associations.
Residents and/or property owners in West Central neighborhood are invited to participate in the fall neighborhood clean-up. The City and the neighborhood association encourages residents to take advantage of this free and convenient opportunity to dispose of trash, brush, leaves and metal. Residents are encouraged to address overgrown fence rows, backyards and alleys adjacent to your property by mowing, cutting down, trimming and disposing of all brush and related debris.
Each year, neighborhood clean-ups serve approximately 900 households and remove over 175 tons of bulk waste (furniture, mattresses, etc.) and brush from Springfield neighborhoods. The clean-ups take place outside, rain or shine. Items accepted are trash, brush, leaves and metal. Curbside pickup is available, however, fees may apply.
For more information, and to arrange a curbside pickup, please contact Caron Parnell at 314-825-6498.
Meetings are the fourth Tuesday of each month at 6:30 p.m. at Broadway United Methodist Church.
