Several hundred residents have already registered and city officials are hoping to have over 800 volunteers participating. Volunteers will meet at the UDOT north parking lot (4501 S. 2700 W.) on April 27th for registration and breakfast from 7 - 8 a.m.
Various service projects include Jordan River clean up, neighborhood beautification, community garden plantings, and several park beautification projects. Kid-friendly projects like building bird houses to hang along the Jordan River, or decorating the tunnel at the Jordan River and 4500 South, will also be available.
"We look forward to working together as a city to beautify Taylorsville," said Mayor Jerry Rechtenbach. "But more importantly, we look forward to the community bonds that will be formed as we work side by side as neighbors."
This day of service, sponsored by Taylorsville City and Comcast Cares, is attracting families, church groups, scout troops, and businesses. Girl Scout Troop 2532 Leader Jeanette Williams says her troop is excited to participate. "Taylorsville helped our troop when we were in need, after our girls had their cookie money stolen. We look at this as a way to give back to our community."
Comcast is providing breakfast, lunch, and t-shirts for the volunteers. Residents are encouraged to register as soon as possible by visiting www.taylorsvilleut.gov
