NEWRA's Clean Streets Committee acts to preserve and enhance the livability and health of our residential neighborhood. Clean Streets monitors compliance with environmental, health, sanitary, building, noise, animal control and other codes and ordinances related to public health.
The committee maintains relationships with city and state agencies that promulgate and enforce such codes, and those responsible for parks, open space and recreational facilities including the City of Boston Inspectional Services, Parks and Recreation, Environmental and Public Works Departments, the Rodent Control, Animal Control and Code Enforcement Divisions, the Public Health Commission.
The committee encourages neighborhood cleanups, beautification projects and the like.

Cleanliness Tip Sheet
Keep the North End
Clean & Healthy!
Trash violations are a constant problem in the neighborhood and they have numerous repercussions ranging from odor and rat infestation to germs, blight, and to the creation of an unlivable environment. This law will better able the cities and towns that opt into this program to hold property owners responsible for infractions of city ordinances.
Starting May 29, 2010, Boston will start enforcing the new law. Trash-related citations will be added to the property owners's tax bill at the end of the year. This provision will be an effective tool in keeping our streets clean.
The Green Ticket Bill Is Now Law!

Clean Streets meetings are scheduled for the Tuesday after NEWRA's monthly meeting. Our meetings are open to all willing to participate.
Check the Calendar for all meeting dates.
Parking restrictions are being enforced for street cleaning from April through November. Violators will be ticketed with a $40 fine and towed.
Did you know that the City will send you an email reminder to move your car the day before your street is cleaned? All you have to do is register with your email and the street where your car is parked at http://www.cityofboston.gov/publicworks/sweeping.
Don’t forget to change the street name when you park on a different street. Please pass this important information on to our other residents. We want clean streets not residents being towed.
We all want a cleaner North End and Waterfront. To achieve this goal, we all need to work together to keep our sidewalks and gutters clean. We are asking all business owners and residents to join us in our "10 Minutes with a Broom" campaign and committ to making sure every day that the sidewalk and gutters outside your property are free of trash and cigarette butts.
If you would like to join in and be part of our neighborhood campaign, please sign up using the form below. You can also get your neighbors involved using this sign-up sheet and give it to a Clean Street committee member at a meeting.
