In an effort to keep our neighborhoods clean and healthy, the Georgetown Community Partnership's Environment & Landlord Initiatives and Communications & Engagement working groups launched the 2016-2017 Clean Block Competition for the West Georgetown and Burleith neighborhoods. The fall 2016 results were announced earlier this year.

Congratulations to the spring 2017 Clean Block Competition winners, which a panel of GCP leaders judged to be the cleanest in the neighborhood in February and March. Gold and silver medal markers have been displayed in the blocks’ treeboxes for two weeks and on doorhangers. All residents of the winning blocks were invited to participate in a raffle to win a pair of tickets to a Washington Nationals game, courtesy of the Mayor's office. Winners also earned discounts at select local businesses including the Mad Fox Taproom in Glover Park. Thanks to all for doing your part to keep our neighborhoods clean!
