Council Member Larry Green Announces “(K)lean It Up, Green It Up” Campaign

Houston City Council Member for District K Larry Green announced the “(K)lean It Up, Green It Up” initiative at an event at City Hall today. The initiative will look to create a cleaner community for District K residents, as well as establish the district as one of the ‘greenest’ communities in the city.

“This campaign is dedicated to the improvement of District K in hopes of creating a better community for generations to come,” said Council Member Green. “(K)lean It Up, Green It Up will require strong community buy-in, and we’ve already began to build a strong coalition of support across the City. We’re very excited about this campaign, and we’re looking forward to the community kick-off event that will be held this weekend.”

Following brief remarks from Council Member Green, Lee Vela from Clear Channel Outdoor was introduced to give additional remarks, as well as present the official unveiling of the “(K)lean It Up, Green It Up” billboard that will be displayed across the community.

“We’re thrilled to be partnering with the District K office to help support the ‘(K)lean It Up, Green It Up’ campaign,” said Mr. Vela. “We believe wholeheartedly in this incredible initiative and are proud to support the Council Member and District K in its implementation.”

“(K)lean It Up, Green It Up” is an initiative focused on beautifying District K through tree plantings, the development of community gardens, an increased focus on recycling, and opening community farmer’s markets, amongst other green initiatives. The campaign will be officially unveiled during a community kick-off event to be held on Saturday, November 8th at the Fountain of Praise Fountain Life Center in Southwest Houston.
