SPRINGFIELD, Mass (WWLP) — Springfield police are continuing to clean up the streets to create a better quality of life for the community.
Springfield police have continued to clean up the streets, and they finished their last sweep through the North End yesterday.
On Friday, the Springfield Police Ordinance Unit went through this area and visited 14 streets. They issued 103 violations ranging from appliances left on people’s lawns, to issues of overgrowth and trash.
The officers also condemned a house on Grove Street and towed five cars.
Next week, Springfield police plan to help clean up the South End and Maple High Six Corners.
This entire clean-up initiative began after a clean-up in Indian Orchard two weeks ago. Officers first noticed a few people in the area camping on the banks of the Chicopee River in Springfield.
Last week, the ordinance unit issued 76 violations in the Mason Square neighborhood. They found mattresses on people’s lawns and sidewalks, and also issued violations for unregistered cars in the area. After those 76 violations were issued though, a lot of that trash was able to be removed.
