COLORADO SPRINGS – Two cemeteries are getting a makeover, and the city needs your help.

Now through March 15, the city will be cleaning up the grounds at Evergreen and Fairview cemeteries.

Families and friends are being asked to remove any items of value prior to the clean up such as Christmas wreaths.

Other items that will need to be removed include tarnished, unsightly, sun-bleached or damaged containers or flowers.

The cemeteries will allow artificial flowers in vases or attached to stones to stay as long as their placement does not hinder mowing or other cemetery maintenance.

The city has more information posted online at You can also call the cemetery at 719-385-6251.
