Our local team keeps the streets of City Heights clean and safe, 促进社会经济增长

涂鸦去除, 权力洗, and street sweeping are just a few of the many services provided through the 城市澳门官方网赌平台’s 清洁 & 安全程序 that contribute to creating a welcoming environment for residents, 游客, 和城市高地的商业. 正如程序的标题所暗示的那样, its goal is to help keep City Heights streets clean and safe so that property and business owners can focus on running their businesses and safely serving residents and 游客 in the community.

我们的清洁 & Safe team removes graffiti from the business district every week.

清洁 & 安全程序 operates within the City Heights Maintenance Assessment District, which includes University Avenue from Interstate 805 to 50th street and segments of 37th Street, 中央大道, 43街, 和费尔蒙特大道. 除了维护街道, the program is responsible for larger safety and beautification projects in the community, 包括合作 西班牙&E’s Dusk to Dawn Program to install additional street lights in areas with documented criminal activity or safety concerns, and sponsoring landscaping and planter installations along University Avenue.

Beginning as a pilot program with one staff member and contracted maintenance service providers, 清洁 & 安全程序 has evolved to become an entirely in-house operation and an indispensable component of the CHBA. 今天,清洁 & Safe team is composed of three full-time and eight part-time employees, all of whom are residents of City Heights and are committed to making the community a cleaner and safer place to walk, 商店, 和生活. 

有一个完整的员工团队,清洁 & 安全程序 has been able to expand their regular cleaning and maintenance schedule and respond more quickly to maintenance requests from residents and business owners. This has been especially important over the last several months as the COVID-19 pandemic has reduced the capacity of some city services to respond to issues. 

这是清洁组织典型的工作日 & Safe staff balances regular street cleaning and maintenance with responding to the more urgent needs and concerns of residents and businesses along University Avenue. On Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays the crew cleans up all bus stops at the intersection of University and Fairmount avenues, 倒空垃圾桶, 并减少涂鸦, and addresses cleaning issues throughout the district requiring immediate attention. On Tuesdays and Thursdays the staff prioritizes sidewalk sweeping throughout the entire district, and responds to reports made by business/property owners about areas in need of attention.

We recently caught up with the program’s three full-time staff members to get to know them better and talk with them about their work in the community.
