Commissioner Scow to Host Neighborhood Meeting April 11
Clark County Commissioner Mary Beth Scow is hosting a neighborhood meeting at 7 p.m. on Thursday, April 11, at Whitney Community Center, 5712 Missouri Avenue, near Boulder Highway.
Residents of the Whitney area are encouraged to attend, as well as anyone who lives in District G. Commissioner Scow will be discussing neighborhood revitalization and stressing the importance of neighborhood pride.
“The key to having a strong and healthy community is to have residents involved and engaged in their neighborhoods,” said Clark County Commissioner Mary Beth Scow. “I enjoy hosting town hall meetings because we hear directly from residents about their needs, and we can work on ways to address them with the resources we have available.”
Representatives from several agencies are participating in Commissioner Scow’s neighborhood meeting, including Clark County Public Response, Clark County Public Works, Metro, Clark County Water Reclamation District, Parks and Recreation, and representatives from NV Energy and Rebuilding Together Southern Nevada, a nonprofit organization specializing in free home repairs and accessibility modifications for low-income homeowners. Rebuilding Together has been working with the community since 1994. The organization and its 1,500 community partners and volunteers have renovated and rehabilitated more than 6,500 homes, impacting the lives of more than 14,000 of Southern Nevada’s most vulnerable homeowners and families. Services are provided at no cost to qualified homeowners.
In addition, April is Graffiti Awareness Month in Clark County. Attendees of the April 11 neighborhood meeting will be invited to sign up for a graffiti clean-up project in the Whitney area on Saturday, April 13, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Dumpsters will be provided throughout the neighborhood near the Whitney Community Center so that residents can throw away large items that Republic Services cannot collect curbside. Neighborhood residents and volunteers will gather at the community center at 8 a.m. to organize into groups that will clean up graffiti and pick up trash and debris in the surrounding area. Breakfast snacks will be available to arriving participants while supplies last.
Residents are encouraged to contact Commissioner Scow’s office if they have any questions about the upcoming neighborhood meeting or cleanup at (702) 455-8531. District G residents also can sign up to receive a free email newsletter via the County’s website at www.ClarkCountyNV.gov. ###
