How To Build Pride Of Ownership In Your Community – Facebook Group Post of the week:
Today I took action and “took back” my street.
My family lives downtown and our street gets a lot of visitors due to the free 2-hr parking. When the visitors drive away, they leave behind price tags and old clothes from the nearby Goodwill, cigarette butts, bags, food containers, bottles, cans, and plastic wrappers. My wife’s family has lived on the street longer than any other resident (since 1971) and we feel it’s our responsibility to be proud of its appearance and to be an example to others on our block. We have been cleaning for about six months now, and it isn’t easy, but we will continue to do our part in creating a safer and cleaner Santa Cruz.
Where you live is part of a larger community, and that taking care of your street, house, condo or apartment contributes to a strong neighborhood. Strong neighborhoods contribute to good cities and towns, good cities and towns make great states, etc. It says, “I like it here, am willing to stay and want to be part of making this place even better.”
We are inspired by all the facebook group members of TBSC that get it done. Thank you!!! Way to #ownyourblock
