On 18/2014 LAPD West Valley Community Police Advisory Board kicked of 2014 with a new challenge to the community "Claim Back The Sidewalk." The project is about who owns the sidewalk (not in legal term) and who sets the tone for quality of life and what happens on the sidewalk. Is it the community, residence, business or the graffiti, trash, bulk trash?
The group pledge is to meet every 3rd Saturday of the month to Claim Back the Sidewalk.
On 1/15/2014 the project started with group of volunteers headed by the West Valley LAPD, RNC's and Community Police Advisory Board (CPAB) Councilman Blumenfield started. They met at Wilbur and Sherman Way and began to Claim Back The Sidewalk with a clean-up on the South Side of Sherman Way street heading East. Sidewalks were swept and sections steam cleaned, trash was removed, weeds were cleaned out, graffiti removed or painted over and the curbs and fire hydrants were repainted. With the small number of volunteers, they managed to clean up as far as Carl's Jr.

Businesses are asked to pledge as they benefit from a cleaner presentation to the public to spend a little time each week keeping the sidewalk areas clean.
Do YOUR part by volunteering to help, making sure that the cleaned up areas are kept that way and don't hesitate to call 311 to report Graffiti, bulk trash, or problems that the City can help with.
