Long-term Pueblo West resident Lori Burner worked alongside her husband Cecil, the Pueblo West Metro District Parks and Recreation and Streets and Roads, and volunteers to hold a community clean up event April 28.
Burner said the idea for the clean up came to her because she’s noticed an alarming amount of litter within the community over the years.
“I was born in 1930 and Colorado was considered the most beautiful state,” Burner said. “We had signs all over that said, ‘Littering is a fine.’ People didn’t litter because you were fined quite a bit of money. Now I look at Pueblo West, the whole state even, and it’s horrible. Nothing is being done.”
Burner noted she happened to see an area from McCulloch Boulevard by Spaulding Avenue and knew something needed to be done.
