|Anaheim Residents and Community Groups Continue to Support Adopt-A-Neighborhood Programs|
ANAHEIM, CA - (October 8, 2010) - Anaheim residents and community groups continue to take the lead in supporting their local neighbors, ensuring their fellow residents live in graffiti-free neighborhoods.
On Saturday, Oct. 9, Anaheim’s Balsam-Curtis neighborhood in central Anaheim will enter its second year of community partnership in an Adopt-a-Neighborhood program. This will be the first clean-up of the second year of the program, the significance being the residents will take the lead for this and future maintenance. The Adopt-a-Neighborhood program began in 2009 with members of the Rotary Club and Anaheim Beautiful as well as Anaheim police and code-enforcement officers working together with residents in a collaborative effort.
Last month a second neighborhood in Anaheim received similar benefits. The Glen-Neighbors area, near Servite High School, was adopted by the Kiwanis Club.
The Adopt-a-Neighborhood program began in 2009, as a collaborative effort between residents, community groups, the City of Anaheim’s Police and Code Enforcement departments and the community group, Anaheim Beautiful, to improve local neighborhoods. The Rotary and Kiwanis Clubs have volunteered to participate and have eagerly joined in the clean-up efforts, with great success.
The Adopt-a-Neighborhood program has proved to be a successful model, and recently Anaheim representatives received a request to share this vision to police officers in Bakersfield, Calif.
