Clean Cole Street is a project initiated by CVIA where much of the commercial area of Cole Valley is swept every day, twice a day, by CleanScapes. The project is made possible by contributions from Cole Street merchants, a CVIA donation, proceeds from CVIA's Santa on Cole fundraiser, CVIA's member donations, and our annual Raffle during the Cole Valley Fair.
The results of the project are noticeable right after the sweep and the rest of the day. It appears people have a greater respect for our sidewalks when they start out clean.
- Twice daily sidewalk sweeping and litter removal
- Gum removal
- High pressure sidewalk washing
Professional photographer Loic Nicolas supports this project by donating his time to take pictures of kids (and dogs, and grown-ups) for our annual "Santa on Cole" fundraiser. In 2017 Santa on Cole raised almost $3,000 for Clean Cole Street. We are also grateful to an anonymous CVIA member donor who, every year, helps to make up the difference in the funds we raise and the actual cost of the program.
