KEEPING IN CLEAN: New Albany effort hopes to draw sense of pride and people



“By looking its best, it’s also going to draw more people,” Anderson said. “You’ll always love to showcase what you love and if people love the town, they’re going to draw in more people.”

Stumler said that draw into the city starts at welcome signs the group installed last year at the highway interchanges and entrances to the city. Keep New Albany Clean and Green maintains the landscaping near the signs, but the effort to keep downtown in pristine condition is something that he hopes will spread outside the 10-block radius where the volunteers are working.

“[These are] quality of life issues that gives New Albany a better face, a better look, so the residents can be more proud,” Stumler said. “And by doing this, we also improve property values. Cleaning up, fixing up, is contagious. You do it in one place, other people get encouraged to do their own properties. So it’s not all our effort, it’s individuals who want to make a difference.”
