Volunteers Join Neighborhood Beautification Effort

NORTH LAS VEGAS, Nev. — Code Enforcement Community Improvement staff and about 45 community volunteers are expected to partner for a city beautification project from 7 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Sat. May 5 in North Las Vegas.

The project will include graffiti abatement, painting address numbers on curbs, and repainting street polls and community walls. Volunteers include students from Canyon Springs High School's U.S. Air Force JROTC program and residents. The group will gather near the north end of the 1900 block of Stanford Street.

North Las Vegas residents who find graffiti can call the city's graffiti hotline at 702-633-1871. Callers can remain anonymous (and receive a $500 reward for the the arrest of the reported vandal). The city maintains a goal of removing graffiti within 24-48 hours after it is reported. For more information, visit the North Las Vegas Web site.

The project provides a simple solution for communities or even local businesses to effectively lead and partner with volunteers to beautify surrounding neighborhoods.
