Clean Up / Care of Community
Our third annual neighborhood clean up was a success!
Thank you to those who volunteered their time, to Susantainable Tompkins for a mini-grant that let us purchase safety equipment, and to Home Depot of Ithaca who donated the rest of the equipment.
Please join the Spencer Road Neighborhood Association for our spring road clean-up!

Meet at the traffic triangle between the 400 and 500 blocks of Spencer Road
Refreshments will be provided. Bring work gloves if you have them.
Thanks to a grant from Sustainable Tompkins, we will be able to buy some safety equipment for neighbors to use for the clean-up.
Let’s all keep our community beautiful!
The Spencer Road Neighborhood Association will hold its April meeting on Sunday, April 23rd at 10am at Panera Bread on South Meadow Street.
Save the date! Saturday, May 13th we are planning our third annual neighborhood clean up. Watch your mail for a postcard annoucement, or come to the April 23rd meeting to help plan.
The South Hill Civic Association and the Spencer Road Neighborhood Association will be having a joint meeting Saturday, February 4th at 9:30am. It will be held at the South Hill Elementary School at 520 Hudson St in Ithaca. (Please go to the front door of the school and ring the bell to be let in – the door will be closed.) At the meeting, we will be discussing the Chainworks District, and traffic/sidewalk issues (including the approved plan to dead-end Spencer Rd at the Spencer Rd/Stone Quarry Rd intersection).
The Spencer Road Neighborhood Association will be holding a meeting Sunday, March 19th at 10:00am at Panera (748 South Meadow St in Ithaca) to plan for our spring neighborhood clean-up (tentatively scheduled for May).
The Spencer Rd Neighborhood Association (SRNA) has received a grant of $200 for the purpose of mailing out postcards to inform the neighborhood of our twice-a-year road clean-up efforts, and purchase some safety and other equipment for the clean-ups. The grant was awarded by Sustainable Tompkins.
We will meet on Sunday, Jan. 15 at 10:00 AM to discuss setting up a bank account for SRNA (which requires registering an EIN for our organization- a one time cost of $75 – we will take up collections at the meeting) and to discuss what to prioritize with the grant money after the cost of the mailings. Also on the agenda will be taking nominations for officers, and exploring putting together a listing of “services needed and offered” by neighbors to post to our e-mail list.
Neighbors have previously met at Panera on Rt 13 on Sunday mornings at 10am and it has been pretty quiet at that time. We think it would work for up to 10 people, but if more are interested we’ll find a bigger place to meet, so please RSVP by emailing Jennie at email@example.com to give us an idea of how many are interested in attending.
We hope to see you all soon! And if you want to chip in some money but can’t make this meeting, please email Jennie.
The second annual Spencer Road neighborhood clean-up will take place on Saturday, June 25th, starting at 9am. This is done as an entirely volunteer effort by Spencer Road area neighbors. The city will take the trash away for us, we just need to bag it up. Please come join us in keeping our neighborhood clean!
Neighbors interested in helping to pick up trash should convene at 9am by the Spencer Road triangle (500 Spencer Road). Please bring your own gloves, if possible. Trash bags will be provided.
