First Neighborhood Clean Up

On Saturday, January 10th, the V.M. Ybor Neighborhood Association held its first neighborhood clean up. Five of us picked up trash on Nebraksa Ave and Columbus Drive, as well as many residential blocks. We received a very encouraging response from the public and hopefully recruited more people to help in the future. We also took note of multiple code violations. Thanks to Kim & Richard Headland, Barbara Robinson, and Pete Johnson for their help!

Code Enforcement

Just the other day, our neighborhood activist friend Pete Johnson, stirred up some city officials about the number of code violations within our boundaries. Since then, some of these officials have driven around here to witness the problems we face. Right now, as much as ever, is a key time to submit code violations. The more we inundate Code Enforcement with our concerns, the more the city will be pressured to change. Please keep up the pressure.
