Now’s the chance to submit a Salisbury neighborhood for BlockWork, a grass-roots program developed in 2010 to beautify Salisbury neighborhoods. BlockWork neighborhood applications within City of Salisbury limits will be accepted through Friday, June 11, by the Community Appearance Commission and Housing Advocacy Commission.
The 2021 BlockWork event has been set for Saturday, October 23, on, “National Make a Difference Day.” The event strives to bring residents and community volunteers together to build cleaner and safer neighborhoods, one block at a time. Projects include carpentry, painting, landscaping and general clean-up in a one-block area. Long-term maintenance responsibility is assumed by block property owners, residents, and neighborhood participants.

Applications can be submitted by postal mail, email, or accepted in person with Alyssa Nelson at the City Office Building, 132 N. Main Street, Salisbury NC, 28144.
