Neighborhood Services Helps to Clean-up Neighborhoods

The Community and Human Development's Neighborhood Services Division has been working diligently to make progress to preserve and renew neighborhoods citywide. As part of this effort, several neighborhood clean-ups have already been initiated. In early December, with the help of community agencies and neighborhood residents, the Department of Community and Human Development Neighborhood Services Division spearheaded clean-ups in the Lower Dyer and Chamizal Neighborhoods. Volunteers game their Saturday mornings to help the elderly and disabled residents clean up their yards. There were piles of trash and debris on peoples curb waiting for it to be picked up. Trucks loading the trash were overflowing and as a result, not only did the neighborhood look like it had a makeover, but the residents were inspired to continue to keep their yards and neighborhoods clean.

Message from Bill Lilly, Director -
Department of Community and Human Development:

"Thanks to those that came out to volunteer. Your efforts make a significant difference in obtaining the trust and confidence of those we serve and simultaneously making a positive impact and difference in our targeted neighborhoods".
