Castlegar CIB hoping to see Castlegar become tidiest city in Canada

Castlegar Communities in Bloom wants to see Castlegar as the tidiest city in Canada.

Pitch in Canada Week is coming up later this month.

CIB organizer Darlene Kalawsky says they're going to be engaging in the iniatiative with the City of Castlegar, and they're encouraging residents to get out and tidy up throughout the year.

She says seeing litter around the city isn't good for economic development or tourism in Castlegar.

There are many ways to help, including the city's Adopt a Road program, call public works for details.
