A new community partnership in the City of Binghamton is looking to clean up the First Ward.

Councilman Giovanni Scaringi says the idea is to pool resources of several agencies and volunteers including the Center of Employment Opportunities, Saint Michael’s Church and Volunteers of America.

The plans for the effort were announced at Sunflower Park on Murray Street with a community-wide clean up event planned for Friday, August 12 from 3-7 p.m. on Clinton Street, Lake Avenue and the intersection of Clinton and Front Streets.
