The moment we have been building up to, Clearview Street’s big Urban Energy Conservation Block Party, went off without a hitch Saturday, May 15th.

The Ogontz Ave Revitalization Corporation (OARC) supplied residents with energy saving devices for their homes, great food, upbeat music and a host of incredible opportunities form local utilities and organizations. With the beautiful weather, fun giveaways and great information, a good time was had by all.

TTF, thanks to generous donations from GoodLife bottles and Klean Kanteen was able to raffle off 30 reusable stainless steel water bottles so that residents of Clearview Street can model sustainable behaviors. TTF also installed rain barrels on a handful of homes to increase stormwater retention and raise awareness of watershed issues.
