Two Community Events Celebrating: 

“One Street, Two Cities, One Goal – Collaboration” 

Please join Mayor Sam Henderson of Gulfport and Mayor Rick Kriseman of St. Petersburg as they host the 5th Annual Mayors’ 49th Street Cleanup on Saturday, October 13th. Elected officials and staff members from both cities will also be on hand.

The cleanup is about more than picking up litter. It is a celebration about community and it is about the collaboration of the neighborhoods along our shared 49th Street. Residents from all areas of both cities are encouraged to participate. This event affords all the opportunity to come out and meet neighbors from both communities, while also making a difference. The communities of Gulfport and St. Petersburg need not be divided by anything more than four lanes of asphalt.

Immediately after the cleanup, Gulfport Police Chief Rob Vincent and St. Petersburg Police Chief Anthony Holloway will host the 4th Annual Chiefs’ Chat Community Forum. This event is an informal and relaxed way to learn more about how the two departments work together. Attendees are also offered the opportunity to ask questions and gather information.

Both events take place on the Tangerine Greenway on 49th Street South at Tangerine Avenue. Cleanup participants will be divided into four teams and will clean 49th Street and its adjacent alleys from the Pinellas Trail south to Gulfport Blvd. / 22nd Avenue.

Registration and a light breakfast begins at 8:15AM

Mayors’ Welcome begins at 9:00AM

Cleanup begins at 9:15AM

Chiefs’ Chat starts at 10:30AM

This event is organized by the City of Gulfport, the City of St. Petersburg and the Gulfport Neighbors.
