Sylmar Neighborhood Council
Sylmar NC participates in LA Clean Streets ChallengePosted on 01/17/17
Our Sylmar Neighborhood Counicl Public Works Liaison Christian Rubalcava serves as the primary point of contact for our Neighborhood Council. He lead the Clean Streets Initiative, which was first announced by Mayor Eric Garcetti in 2015.
It focused on creating a cleaner and more livable city, the Clean Streets Initiative provided funding for additional trash bins, a third Clean Streets Strike Team, the development of a cleanliness assessment system, and increased enforcement of illegal dumping. A key component to the success of the Clean Streets Initiative is a coordinated and robust public engagement campaign, which includes Liaisons working in partnership with the Mayor’s Office, Council Offices, and the Department of Public Works, and stakeholders to organize clean ups, increase 311 reporting in their area, and engage local stakeholders on how to maintain street cleanliness.
The SNC Outreach also helped support this initiative by holding several cleanups around Sylmar in 2016.
