Laura believes a basic duty of city government is maintaining a trash-free community
There is no excuse for piles of garbage anywhere in La Mesa. All land belongs to someone. If litter is on public property, the City of La Mesa needs to stay on top of it. If trash is accumulating on Caltrans property or around EDCO dumpsters, they need to hear from La Mesa and clean it up. Same with private property owners. Garbage is unsanitary, an eye sore, grossly unfair to the residents who are exposed to it, diminishes property values and hurts La Mesa's Jewel-of-the-Hills character.
Laura believes a basic duty of city government is maintaining a trash-free community and feels strongly personnel should exist to accomplish this goal.
As evidenced by the crowds of volunteers that arrived to clean up La Mesa after the May 30th riots, there is an abundance of community goodwill and volunteers in La Mesa. There are also numerous individuals and companies that would love to sponsor clean ups in La Mesa.
Laura would love to spearhead a monthly clean up followed by a sponsored breakfast!
P.S. It has been Laura's observation that homelessness, vagrancy, illegal behavior and littering is greatly reduced during pickleball hours at Collier Park.
As there are multiple tennis courts throughout La Mesa, Laura thinks the courts at Collier Park should be designated for full-time pickleball. Pickleball is America's fastest growing sport, a game for all ages, encourages health and fitness and is an excellent way to prevent crime through environmental design.
