COUNCILWOMAN RODRIGUEZ LAUNCHES OPERATION BRIGHT SPOT

A Community Cleanup Blitz Aimed at Outfoxing Trash & Tidying up Business Corridors in the Northeast Valley

SYLMAR, CA -- Los Angeles City Councilwoman Monica Rodriguez today was joined by a coalition of business leaders, LA Sanitation, StreetsLA, and Northeast Graffiti Busters to announce the launch of Operation Bright Spot: Strategic Partners Outfoxing Trash -- a coordinated neighborhood clean up program for communities in the Northeast San Fernando Valley.

Through a targeted neighborhood cleanup plan, Operation Bright Spot team members will conduct street sweeping, red curb painting, graffiti removal, weed abatement, bulky item pick up, gum removal, and power washing of sidewalks. 

“This type of investment is long overdue at our major corridors,” said Councilwoman Monica Rodriguez. “This program will shed a bright spot and provide a fresh start for businesses in our neighborhoods.”

Operation Bright Spot supplements existing City services and allows for faster response times of services delivered. This regional deployment of services will spread out across the 7th Council District to keep the neighborhoods clean and safe, removing visual blight and improving the quality of life for residents. Councilwoman Monica Rodriguez secured $200,000 to fund Operation Bright Spot and the program will extend through the end of 2020. The neighborhoods receiving services from Operation Bright Spot include: Sylmar, Mission Hills, Pacoima, Lake View Terrace, Sunland-Tujunga, North Hills, Shadow Hills, and La Tuna Canyon. Residents interested in learning more about the program may contact the Office of Councilwoman Monica Rodriguez at 818-485-0600.
