Take 10 on Tuesday in downtown York

On February 1, 2011, Mayor Bracey and Downtown, Inc. held a press conference to announce “Take 10 on Tuesday” a new initiative aimed towards maintaining the cleanliness of York City, by encouraging all city residents and businesses to take 10 minutes every Tuesday to clean dirt, debris, and trash from the front of their homes and businesses. 

Joining together as a community and simply taking 10 minutes out of your day to clean the front of properties will display the pride that we have for our community while making it vibrant and welcoming to all.

Join the effort

If interested in joining our efforts to keep York City beautiful, by organizing a "Take 10 on Tuesday" clean up day, please contact Edquina Washington, Director of Community Relations at 717-849-2200 or ewashington@yorkcity.org.

On June 14th, 2012, the City of York, PA was awarded the Honorable Mention City Livability Award by The U.S. Conference of Mayors for the "Take 10 on Tuesday" initiative.  Click here to view the press release.
