More than 30 students, residents and stakeholders took part in Environmental Charter Middle School’s Clean- up Day event on Saturday, May 20, 2017. Trash was removed, bulky items discarded and streets and alleyways were swept from 167th Street to Gardena Avenue between Hoover Street and Vermont Avenue.
Also, trash was removed at Gardena Willows Wetland Preserve, near Vermont Avenue and Artesia Blvd. In addition, vegetables were planted and garden boxes were stenciled on-campus.
Environmental Charter Middle School Gardena (ECMS-G), 812 W. 165th Place, is a stakeholder with Harbor Gateway North Neighborhood Council (HGNNC) and is located in its boundaries.
Future outstanding Clean up Days like this one are planned as bi-monthly events that started in January 2017 and will continue in the fall as the current semester ends in June. More upcoming Green Up Days will be posted on the HGNNC website. Stakeholders, both youth and adult, are invited to participate. Call ECMS-G for details at (310) 425-1605.
HGNNC will meet on Tuesday, May 9th and will discuss and vote on official position and support needed to address public safety and Street Takeovers in the Harbor Gateway North Community.
Meeting details: Tues. May 9 at 7 p.m. in the auditorium of the 135th Street School, 801 W. 135th Street, Gardena, CA 90247.
Donald Galatz of Project Street Legal will discuss his proposal to create an off-street racing location in the Harbor area which would discourage illegal street racing on public streets. The Board will appoint two Budget Representatives for the 2017-2018 fiscal year and also discuss sending a letter to Mayor Garcetti and the City Council stating the budget priorities for the Harbor Gateway North Neighborhood Council area based on the issues stakeholders have raised in person, via email, and by telephone.
