By Mayor Carlo DeMaria

This past weekend, I was overwhelmed by the turnout for our Earth Day cleanup of the Northern Strand Community Trail. I am humbled by the amount of residents, local officials, non-profit organizations, businesses, volunteer groups and municipal employees that all came together to improve our City. We are fortunate to have such a great community that cares about our environment. Everett’s portion of the bike trail has quickly become one of the best sections of the Northern Strand Community Trail.

On Saturday, it was clear to me that we have made it a community goal and a cooperative effort to maintain a certain level of cleanliness on the path. The work that was accomplished would not have been possible if not for the hundreds of volunteers. Senior citizens, city employees, and city organizations removed debris, painted over graffiti, prepared gardens for the summer months, placed medallions on storm drains, painted street art, built an ornamental garden and helped improve our quality of life here in Everett.

I was particularly heartened to see so many young students volunteering. It was evident that these young adults have a strong work ethic and responsibility, and qualities that will ultimately benefit them in their adult lives.

I know a majority of us were probably sore on Sunday, but let me tell you, as Mayor, I am proud of the work that was accomplished. We came together as a community to make sure that we maintain a quality path that is accommodating to a multitude of users. This path connects our community to significant destinations and brings increased economic vitality, improved quality of life, and better community health outcomes by providing easy access to physical activity.

A City is only as strong as its people and the over 300 volunteers undoubtedly showed that. To all the sponsors; Schnitzer Northeast, Wheelabrator Saugus, Tighe & Bond, Bobrek Engineering, and 7/11 on Main Street I remain truly humbled by your gestures in helping my administration continue to improve the beauty of our community.

Once again, thank you for coming together and participating in our Earth Day Clean up. Your work and dedication certainly did not go unnoticed and I truly appreciate it not only as Mayor, but also as a resident of the City of Everett.
