On Saturday, the Antioch Police Department will host its 80th Neighborhood Cleanup event in the area of Fremont Elementary School.
The May 6 cleanup will begin at 9:00 am and focus on the neighborhoods between F street, L Street and W. 11th Street. Volunteers are being encouraged to park along F Street in front of Fremont Elementary School.
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.
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.
