The rain may have de­layed it, but the Re­think Rock­mart group is still plan­ning to hit the streets and curb lit­ter with a neigh­bor­hood clean-up day.

While orig­i­nally planned for Satur­day, April 20, those look­ing to help beau­tify Rock­mart can meet the group on May 11 at the city com­plex on Col­lege Street the morn­ing of.

Vol­un­teers do not have to be for­mal Re­think Rock­mart mem­bers, and nec­es­sary ma­te­ri­als such as trash bags, gloves, wa­ter, and other sup­plies will be pro­vided by the group. Gate­way streets such as Goodyear, Pied­mont, Elm, Jones, and Church street will be the fo­cus of the day, but lo­cals are in­vited and en­cour­aged to clean up wher­ever they see fit.

The group also plans to bring out dump­sters for city residents who may need to get rid of ex­cess trash be­fore it ends up on the ground. Those look­ing to throw items away must still com­ply with the typ­i­cal dump­ing rules, how­ever.

Re­think Rock­mart is a group con­cerned with restor­ing and main­tain­ing var­i­ous as­pects of the city whether it be aes­thet­ics, haz­ards, or rep­u­ta­tion.

The group of­ten works on housing rehabilita­tion, re­use projects, and re­vi­tal­iza­tion ef­forts in the form of di­rectly tak­ing ac­tion and ed­u­cat­ing others.

Those in­ter­ested in join­ing the ef­forts of Re­think Rock­mart are urged to visit https://www.face­book.com/re­thinkrock­mart/.
