Historic Sixth District Clean Up March 6

On Sunday March 6 starting at 9 a.m., join your fellow business and property owners in power washing, painting, sanding, sealing, repairing and cleaning the most historic district in Austin. Just in time for SXSW, 6ixth Street Austin is hosting an old fashioned community clean up.

Pick a project on your building and get it done! Here some easy stuff that you can do to make a difference:
• Wash your windows
• Paint your trim & doors
• Clean your sign / awning
• Remove flyers, banners
• Replace light bulbs
• Paint your facade

City of Austin crews will be on hand scrubbing sidewalks and Downtown Austin Alliance maintenance crews will be there too. Lamppost banners, celebrating the historic district, will be up by Sunday in time for the Cleanup, SXSW and the busy spring season.

Now, downtown residents, business and property owners have a chance to refresh the district. Drop an e-mail at to weigh in on what you will be doing to improve your building, even if it is a little after Sunday, March 6.
