Another Great Suburban Acres Community Cleanup!

Members of the Suburban Acres Civic League joined forces to help clean up our community on Saturday, March 30.  It was a beautiful day for a clean up.  We look forward to future clean up efforts and will continue to commit to these events in the future.  Be on the lookout for future announcements of clean up dates by following this website and our facebook page!

City of Norfolk Recycling Survey

The City of Norfolk has posted a survey in an attempt to gather feedback from citizens about their feelings about recycling, how much they do it, and how much they’d be willing to pay to make sure it continues. Please consider taking this survey to help the city with its decision making process regarding this important issue.

There is also a very interesting report posted on this website that the City will be presenting to City Council later this month. We also encourage our neighbors to sign up for Open City Hall so you can provide input on other surveys that the city posts in the future.

This is an key issue for our city to sort out with full feedback from all citizens. For further context, please read the below article published in the Virginian Pilot on February 14, 2019.

Adopt-A-Spot Cancelled for January 26, 2019

The Suburban Acres Civic League’s Adopt-A-Spot trash clean-up has been cancelled for Saturday, January 26th, due to the predicted freezing/sub-freezing temperatures in the morning.  The cleanup will be rescheduled for warmer weather so neighbors can enjoy their morning of community service!  ❄⛄❄

But mark your calendars for the league’s general meeting on February 11th at Suburban Park Elementary School.  Our speaker will be Norfolk Chief of Police, Larry Boone.  Here’s your chance to talk with our top law enforcement officer about crime and safety issues in our city.

Soggy, but Successful Adopt-a-Spot! [Pictures]

The SACL held its Adopt-a-Spot event on October 20th, 2018.  Thanks to everyone that came out to help pick up trash from Suburban Park Elementary to the Tinee Giant along Thole Street.  The weather was rather rotten, which understandably kept some folks away, but we still picked up a lot of trash.  We are looking forward to the next Adopt-a-Spot event!

REMINDER!

This weekend, don’t forget to come out and pitch in to clean up Suburban Acres!

Saturday, October 20, 2018, the Suburban Acres Civic League is hosting our Adopt-a-Spot event.  Suburban Acres neighbors will gather to clean up trash in the areas of Suburban Park Elementary School and all the way down Thole St. to the Tinee Giant.  Weather permitting, of course!  We will meet at Suburban Park Elementary School at 9 AM.

Bring your friends and family and help keep your community clean in fellowship with your neighbors.

Our last Adopt-a-Spot in August was a success with great turnout!  Let’s make this one another great success!  The forecast calls for a beautiful, crisp, fall morning.
