Volunteers turn out for Park Hill District Cleanup Day

More than 20 volunteers gathered Saturday, May 3, at Hammond Park to participate in the first Midtown Neighborhood Coalition Cleanup Day, held in the Park Hill District and Radial Streets community. The event took place in conjunction with the annual Downtown Cleanup Day hosted by Keep Kingsport Beautiful.

“We had a great turnout for the cleanup events today, and we really appreciate everyone who participated,” said KKB Director Robin Cleary.

Including the Midtown Neighborhood Coalition volunteers, more than 100 people participated in the cleanup activities, Cleary said.

Cleanup activities included picking up litter, trimming overgrown shrubs and bushes, and generally sprucing up the areas targeted in the cleanup.

The Midtown Neighborhood Coalition plans to hold other cleanup days in other Midtown neighborhoods in the future. Please visit the group’s Facebook page at for updates as they become available.

The Midtown Neighborhood Coalition was formed through the Choice Neighborhoods Initiative. The Kingsport Housing & Redevelopment Authority (KHRA) received a Choice Neighborhood Initiative (CNI) Planning Grant in October 2012 from the Department of Housing and Urban Development to develop a revitalization plan for the Midtown Neighborhood, which includes Robert E. Lee Apartments, Gibson Mill District, Cloud Apartments, Watauga Street District, North Center Street District, White City Historic District, Sullivan-Center Street District, Radial Streets District, Park Hill Historic District, Cherokee Village, Roller Street District, and the Downtown District.
