Commissioner Scow to Host Whitney Area Neighborhood Cleanup Day on March 1 

    Clark County Commissioner Mary Beth Scow and the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Southeast Area Command will host a neighborhood cleanup day in the Whitney area of District G from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, March 1.   

    Residents and volunteers will gather at 9 a.m. at the Whitney Recreation Center, 5712 E. Missouri Ave., near Tropicana Avenue and Boulder Highway.  By 9:30 a.m., volunteers will fan out into nearby neighborhoods with rakes, shovels, gloves, trash bags and painting supplies to clean up trash and paint over graffiti. METRO’s Southeast Area Command is sponsoring the cleanup with Commissioner Scow.  

    “We are working with Metro’s Southeast Area Command and the residents of the Whitney area to make this cleanup day a big success,” Commissioner Scow said. “These events are wonderful opportunities for residents to get to know their neighbors and build goodwill within our community.”         

    Dumpsters will be placed at the corners of Dodd and Steptoe Streets and Kimberly Avenue and Broadbent Boulevard for residents to throw away unwanted household items and debris.    

    For more information about the cleanup, contact Blanca Vaquez at (702) 455-8531 or the Commissioner’s office at (702) 455-5561 or ccdistg@ClarkCountyNV.gov.
