U.Va. Students And Community Members Holding JPA Community Clean-Up

March 30, 2004 -- Students and other residents who live on or near Jefferson Park Avenue will be devoting part of a spring afternoon to sprucing up their neighborhood. The JPA Community Clean-Up will take place Sunday, April 4, from 2 to 4 p.m., with check-in beginning at 1:30 p.m. at Beta Theta Pi fraternity, 124 Maury Ave. Following the clean-up, all participants are invited to a free dinner at Anna’s Pizza. Clean-up participants are asked to register by e-mailing case@virginia.edu or by calling 924-5276. The event will be held rain or shine.

The event is sponsored by the U.Va./Charlottesville Community Coalition. Coalition members include U.Va. faculty, staff and students representing numerous offices and organizations, as well as members of local neighborhood associations, law enforcement officers and area property managers.

“Our neighborhood is really pleased to be working with U.Va. students and administrators to try to address in a positive way some of the problems with noise and litter in our community,” said Dan Clark, who represents the JPA neighborhood on the coalition and is assistant city engineer with the city of Charlottesville. “The vast majority of University students are quite responsible, and we want to continue building good relationships with them and the entire community.”

Clark added that he has invited City Council members and candidates for the upcoming election to join in the clean-up.

Funding for coalition programs comes through a higher learning College Partnership grant awarded to U.Va.’s Center for Alcohol and Substance Education. The federal grant has been awarded to U.Va. for two years from the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention through the Virginia Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control.
