Council Member Antonio Brown to Host Dixie Hills Community Cleanup

ATLANTA—District 3 Council member Antonio Brown is hosting a community cleanup in the Dixie Hills neighborhood Saturday.

“Dixie Hills is an important neighborhood in District 3, and this cleanup is a continuation of our hands-on effort to improve our community. We are taking action, getting results, and reaching people where they are,” Brown said.

Brown is partnering with Keep Atlanta Beautiful Commission, Wells Fargo, and the Department of Public Works for the cleanup.

“Keep Atlanta Beautiful Commission supports weekly community cleanups throughout City of Atlanta neighborhoods.  Dixie Hills Neighborhood residents have been key participants in the fight against blight demonstrating a resilient spirit despite the challenges blight presents.  We’re eager to continue this important work under the leadership of Council member Brown and all stakeholders involved,” said Moses Tejuoso, Community Affairs Manager.  

Volunteers are meeting at Anderson Elementary School, 2050 Tiger Flowers Drive, to kick off the cleanup. Volunteers will clean the Dixie Hills and Penelope Neighbors communities around Verbena, Penelope, and Pansy streets.
