A community based volunteer organization, the North End Beautification Committee (NEBC) has set its goals for 2015 events and projects.
Plans call for banners for the entrances to the North End, benches for Cross Street planters and continued maintenance of these planters.
Recipients of the North End/Waterfront Residents’ Association (NEWRA) Great Neighbor Award for helping to keep the North End clean, the Committee’s mission is to preserve, maintain and enhance the aesthetic integrity of the historic neighborhood, with hopes to enrich its beautification through creative and innovation enhancements.
The extremely active Committee has set goals of advocating a high standard of community cleanliness, maintenance and attractiveness, encouraging participation of residents in improving the neighborhood and serving as liaison and resource for residents, schools, businesses, organizations and city government.
This year the NEBC created a summer clean streets program partnering with WorkInc, decorated the North End with trees, poles and holiday decorations on Cross Street.
Held a holiday treat event with Santa including hot chocolate and cookies. Participated in the holiday stroll with a bake sale raising money for St. John School.
They placed tree planters decorated for spring and the holiday season on the corner of Cross, Hanover and Salem Streets.
In addition they weeded and mulched tree beds on Cross Street. Participated in Boston Shines spring program.
The Committee has done many other beautification programs over the years. In order to continue this valuable neighborhood service, the NEBC needs financial support. Checks can be sent to: NEBC, 100 Fulton Street 4V, Boston, MA 02109.
