May 1, 1987: Santa Feans will take to arroyos and streets with brooms, dustpans and trashbags in hopes of simultaneously carting away litter and ushering in a new citywide self-consciousness. More than 200 residents, including representatives from civic and high school groups, are expected to take part in the weeklong Santa Fe cleanup, sponsored by Santa Fe Beautiful. The main purpose is to promote a more widespread awareness that we have to pay attention to how the city looks. We want tourists to return.
