Dec. 2: Antioch Set for Neighborhood Cleanup

6

The Antioch Police Department will host the 86th installment of the Neighborhood Cleanup Program on Saturday, December 2 from 9:00 am to 11:00 am.

The event will be cleaning the neighborhood near Williamson Ranch Park from Hillcrest, Lone Tree Way, Furlong Way, Indian Hill Drive and Morgan Way. Volunteers will meet at Williamson Ranch Park and park in the parking lot.

Volunteers will receive instructions and the equipment necessary to accomplish the goal. The targeted area is within walking distance. Excluding inclement weather, future Neighborhood Cleanup events are scheduled for the first Saturday of every month and the locations will be announced in advance.

This is a collaborative community effort which involves active participation from The Antioch Police Department Crime Prevention Commission; Neighborhood Watch Program; Volunteers in Police Service; community volunteers and the Public Works Department.

Collectively, “We”, everyone who works and lives in the City Antioch, can make a difference and improve the quality of life. It’s our community and it’s our chance to make a difference.

The City of Antioch Neighborhood Cleanup program is not just for residential neighborhoods. It is a program that will change venues on a monthly basis and it will include business and commercial areas as well. Neighborhoods that are free of trash and refuse are inviting, and a clean community instills a sense of community pride.

    • Ironic that your calling anybody else dumb. Besides its a 2 hour clean up, not a 2 week cleanup. How much can anyone clean in Sycamore in 2 hours?

    • Some places on Sycamore Dr. do what it takes to keep their lots clean. Most do not. It takes daily liter pickups to keep things under control. The endless stream of foot traffic from the railroad makes things much more difficult. Every time the fence between the alley and the tracks is repaired someone takes a set of bolt cutters to it.

  1. You want to clean up Antioch? For starters, have the Code Enforcement people enforce the No Trashcans Parked Where They are Visible code. Then go after the property owners to maintain their property in terms of cleaning up their yards, fixing their delapatated houses— stucco and such..
