Sterling Pride Month, an initiative by the City of Sterling Heights, to encourage residents and members of the community to "take pride" in their property now spans two months and is known as Spring Sterling Pride. The activities throughout April and May focused on preserving and beautifying the City’s existing green space, cleaning up residential neighborhoods and encouraging the planting of trees on both public and private property.
The overall effort is multifaceted in that it will help increase the tree canopy as well as encourage residents to take pride in keeping the City clean and green. Sterling Heights Mayor Michael Taylor said the efforts come at a perfect time of year to promote beautifying residential property.
“One of the many reason I love living in Sterling Heights is the pride residents here take in the appearance of their property,” Taylor said. “Spring Sterling Pride enhances the City’s efforts to encourage spring cleaning by promoting discounts on tree purchases, offering a drop-off place for unwanted household items and other meaningful activities."
Spring Sterling Pride is an initiative run through the Community Relations Department with the support and assistance of DPW, City Development and Parks & Recreation. Any questions can be directed to Community Relations department (586) 446-2470.
