Community clean-up effort kicks off in City Heights

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - City Heights residents and business owners Thursday grabbed their brooms, dustpans and trash bags for a community clean-up.

Dozens of people worked together to beautify a key business corridor of their mid-city neighborhood on University Avenue. The event marked the official kickoff of a civic education campaign called the City heights Clean and Safe Coalition.

Councilmember Marti Emerald helped spearhead the new effort.

"And it's going to grow into other communities as well. We'll be clean, we'll be safer and as citizens we'll be more engaged," Emerald said.

The City Heights Business Association and the captain of the San Diego Police Department's Mid-City Division were also at Thursday's event.
