SUCCESSFUL COMMUNITY MEETING ABOUT EMPTY LOT IN WEST MODESTO NEIGHBORHOOD 

Dozens of neighbors and community leaders in West Modesto attended a community meeting yesterday Thursday about what the City should do with an empty lot in their neighborhood where a lot of illegal trash dumping occurs. #1 suggestion was soccer field, #2 was a community park! 
Next steps are to meet with City staff, and community stakeholders to plan what is needed to transform this lot, and the neighbors want to form a Neighborhood Watch too!  

Another major thank you to our community volunteers, Latin Wings/Alas Latinas, and my new interns for all their help doing door to door outreach even in the rain to invite neighbors and thank you to City of Modesto staff and Modesto Neighbors Inc for their help with yesterday’s meeting. 

Stay tuned….
