One of Mayor Bach’s key objectives is to build community and encourage citizen involvement to make Colorado Springs the best city in the country!
As part of his Spirit of the Springs initiative, the Mayor invites volunteers to join him in taking an active role in cleaning up community parks and trails.
“We know citizens love their city. It’s part of what makes Colorado Springs great – it’s part of the Spirit of the Springs. But sometimes we don’t know how to give back. We hope these park cleanups will provide an organized way to make a difference,” said Donna Nelson, event organizer from the City’s Office of Economic Vitality and Innovation.
