The city’s Operation Clean Sweep program is scheduled to begin, the week of September 14 – 18, in the Hollywood Avenue to Chelsea street area. The three-week sweep, conducted by the Planning & Development Department’s Neighborhood Services Division, involves education, cleanup and enforcement. The first week, two-person teams from the Neighborhood Services Division will distribute city services information packets and notices of violation door-to-door.
During the second week, the Sanitation Department’s CAPS (Clean, Attractive Property Service) trucks visit the neighborhood daily, collecting items placed curbside by residents at no additional charge. The city street sweeper will travel through the area, and rights of way will be trimmed as needed.
During the third week, Neighborhood Services inspectors follow up on the violation notices issued during the first week and address any remaining violations. The Police Department provides additional neighborhood patrols, targeting drug activity. Fire Department personnel address fire safety concerns identified during the sweep. Animal Services assists with any animal issues arising from door-to-door visits and inspections. The result is a visibly cleaner area and increased neighborhood pride.
