St. George Celebrates Arbor Day was a collaboration between Vito, the NYC Citywide Administrative Services and the St. George Civic Association.
The group focused on the Borough Hall plaza, Paulo Park, and the surrounding area. Trees were given away for the community to enjoy and share initiatives that Vito is launching to help revitalize the area, such as Lunch at the St. George Plaza. Tables and chairs will be available daily, weather permitting, for those who would like to use the space. There will be musical performances by Staten Island school bands on select days. Schedule of those dates will be posted.
DCAS put in new landscaping around Borough Hall, painted handicap ramps, repaired lighting fixtures, and power washed and deep cleaned Borough Hall and its perimeters.
Special thanks to all who came out to support and help make St. George a better place to work, live, and play --- including but not limited to: Nonprofit Staten Island, On Your Mark, the National Lighthouse Museum, Community Media of Staten island and the office of the City Clerk.
We would also like to say thank you to our continuous partner, the City Department of Sanitation for providing cleanup materials, helping us remove bags of litter, and helping us make our efforts a success.
