Over the last six months, Freetown City Council’s (FCC) Cleanest Zone Competition has been tracking improvement in sanitation in the 322 zones that make up Freetown. The Competition assesses communities’ efforts to clean and beautify their surroundings (especially planting flowers, trees, shrubs etc) and how innovative and sustainable their solutions to sanitation are.
Six months after the baseline assessment was done, FCC sent out teams of assessors to grade all zones based on cleanliness, beautification, sustainability and innovation. Here are the ten most improved zones in Freetown;
Ward 406, Zone 57: Part of Tar Road
Ward 417, Zone 120: Adulphus Street
Ward 421, Zone 149: Cold Water Community
Ward 422, Zone 154: Lomba Road
Ward 422, Zone 156: Kennedy Street Market
Ward 423, Zone 158: Kossoh Town
Ward 423, Zone 161: Moa Wharf
Ward 432, Zone 215: Brookfields
Ward 433, Zone 224: Prisons Community
Ward 433, Zone 225: Red Pump Community
On Saturday 30th March, the team of independent judges, together with the Mayor and FCC staff, visited the shortlisted zones, walking through the communities and assessing them against the stated criteria. The judges assessment will determine the final winners of the star prize of ten solar street lights, 250M of paved road, a water point and scholarships.
