A clean up project is scheduled along the rail lines in Downtown Sioux Falls and they're hoping you'll join them in this feel-good community effort.

Four neighborhood groups will grab their gloves and garbage bags, walking along the Ellis & Eastern railroad corridor that runs through central Sioux Falls Saturday, October 15 along the 2-1/2 miles of track.

Katrina Lehr-McKinney is with the All Saints Neighborhood Assocoation

Now in its fourth consecutive year, the railroad cleanup event is a project that members of our neighborhood look forward to each year. All of the neighborhoods involved are excited to once again get our hands dirty in order to clean up and beautify this important area.

Joining in the clean up project are the  Pettigrew Heights Neighborhood Association, All Saints Neighborhood Association, the Downtown Residents Association, and the 10th & Western Neighborhood Association, along with Ellis & Eastern and the City of Sioux Falls according to Brienne Maner, Downtown Sioux Falls Communications & Membership Director:

With over 2,300 residents now calling downtown Sioux Falls home, our commitment to keeping the downtown neighborhood and adjacent neighborhoods clean and safe continues to be a top priority.

The event’s rain date is scheduled for the following Saturday, October 22.

You do not need to be a resident in the association area or a member of the organization.  Anyone will to help will be welcome.  If you are interested in volunteering for this effort, please contact Mark Weber with the All Saints Neighborhood at mweber910@peoplepc.com or call 605-338-4353.
