TOP STORY >>Spring cleaning sweeps into family housing

A Spring Clean-Up day, hosted by Little Rock Family Housing, will be held Saturday in conjunction with the Jacksonville Clean-up day.

All residents are encouraged to participate by tidying up their yard and surrounding area. For easier disposal of bulk and junk items, extra dumpsters will be provided at the Town Hall for everyone’s use.

Little Rock Family Housing will be giving away one free flat of annuals per family that is interested. The flowers will be distributed at the Town Hall starting at 10:30 a.m.

Residents don’t have to change their yards into the Garden of Eden, but there are some simple things they can do to spruce up their neighborhoods, according to the housing manager, Francie Escovedo.

“Residents can beautify their yards by picking up trash, throwing away bulk items they do not use anymore, storing children’s toys out of view or along the side of their house, and mowing and trimming the grass,” she said.

“Residents are not allowed to plant vines and must get any trees approved by Little Rock Family Housing before planting. All bulk items, such as old furniture or large boxes, should be taken to the dumpsters. Only items in trashcans and bags of leaves will be picked up off from the curb,” Ms. Escovedo said.

Yard tickets could be issued to residents that fail to comply with yard standards. Examples of yard violations include tall grass, storing ATV’s or boats and having furniture on the carport. A complete list of standards can be found in the resident handbook on pages 14 and 15 or located on their Web site, under “Resident Services.”
