Spring cleaning can wait

Downtown businesses had dry enough weather Tuesday to sweep up the sidewalks in front of their storefronts, but the Greater Downtown Council says it will have to postpone today’s phase 2 project, the Lake Place Park cleanup.

“Apparently, the third time isn’t the charm,” the council said Wednesday in its postponement note, alluding to previous weather-related postponements. “We snuck the Clean Sweep of the sidewalks in yesterday but with snow in the forecast it doesn’t make sense to gather tomorrow.”

The Downtown Council will announce a new date for the Lake Place Park cleanup soon.
