Clean & Green Downtown Haverhill

Clean & Green Downtown Haverhill aims at making Haverhill’s downtown district a GREAT DOWNTOWN!

Clean & Green Downtown Haverhill is a project with a single mission: Making Haverhill’s downtown great!

A few elements of great downtowns that we focus on:

•  Walkable and safe                       •  Clean & maintained
•  Public art                                      •  Good signage
•  Flower, shrubs and green space

We also advocate, to our local government, for:

•  Brickwork and sidewalk improvements
•  Additional trash barrels, dog fouling and cigarette waste solutions
•  More seating
•  More green space – landscaping – a dog park

Clean & Green Downtown Haverhill started as an idea at Possible Dreams 2019. Since then, the Clean & Green Downtown team has organized volunteer opportunities to clean, paint, plant and restore our downtown. After four years of many energetic volunteer hours and support from our sponsors and community, we have completed over 2,400 “acts” or tasks in downtown Haverhill.

We always love when new volunteers join us for a Clean & Green Downtown project.  These opportunities are usually short (two hours or less) and not too strenuous.  Contact us today to get involved and we will keep you updated or follow Team Haverhill on Facebook for the latest Clean & Green news.
