On November 6, we will once again partner with KIPP STRIVE Academy to pick up debris around our neighborhood. We will have over 100 students and parents of KIPP coming out to clean-up our neighborhood, we definitley want to have as many neighbors as possible to join them.
Lunch will be provided, courtesy of the staff of KIPP. We will focus on the streets listed below. Last year we saw that focusing on a few streets had a dramatic impact in one area. In the spring we will host a clean-up for another section of Westview.
Special thanks to neighbor Ken Carey for planning this entire event!

This Saturday the Westview Community Organization partnered up with KIPP STRIVE Academy to clean and beautify quadrant one of Westview – Lucile Avenue, Enota Place, Altoona Place, Mathewson Place, Inman Street, and Wellington Street. One of the main battles of the community are vacant overgrown houses owned by banks or negligent investors. The properties become unsightly and attract illegal dumping. In an effort to beautify the neighborhood and show that this activity is not acceptable in Westview neighbors and students cleaned up trash, hauled away furniture, mowed lawns, and trimmed landscape strips. As a reward for all the hard work lunch was provided by Church’s Chicken. Westview would also like to thank neighbors from West End that came to out to help.
Additional photos can be viewed at Westview’s Facebook group.
