Monthly Neighborhood Walks to Resume
Abell neighbors will be able to gather again beginning in June for the safety walks that had been a monthly occurrence before the pandemic.
The primary purpose of the walk is to help make our neighborhood cleaner and safer by promoting the visibility of neighbors walking together as eyes and ears on the street while communicating with local law enforcement.
The second purpose, equally important, is to note and report safety and/or sanitation problems such as illegal dumping of trash, burned out street lights, graffiti, trees blocking street lights, overgrown vegetation on fences and lawns, improper storage of garbage (i.e. no trash can or lid), evidence of rodent infestation in front or back yards, deteriorating structures or abandoned vehicles. We report issues to 311, and, in turn, report the DPW complaint numbers to the CVCBD Sanitation Team to follow up until the complaints are resolved.
We invite our neighbors to join us on the third Tuesday of every month (March through September), weather permitting, to walk our neighborhood. The first walk for 2021 will be June 15. We gather at the Open Space on 32nd Street between Abell and Guilford at 7:00 p.m.
