We are looking to get community input and ideas for future projects. The very nature of our community outreach projects entail that the community becomes involved in the conception, development, and completion of each and every project that we undertake. Our vision, though ambitious and fore-thinking, cannot encompass the needs of every member of the Santa Ana community without the input of it’s citizens. We accept each and every suggestion with an open mind and the capacity to expand upon them in order to provide our city with the development and growth that it requires.
We at Clean Up Main Street humbly ask each member of this community to provide one idea, one project proposal, one thought that will drive this project forward in the direction that will most greatly benefit this community and the citizens therein.
With the support of the city officials Clean Up Main Street is preparing for some pretty prolific projects to take place. We have many potential projects on our idea board at our office but we are always looking to receive and incorporate input from business owners and citizens of Santa Ana. As we continue to gather support from the community our projects will grow and become more ambitious as a result. Be sure to get involved and help drive this effort forward for the benefit of your community, your economy, and your city as a whole.
On Thursday September 27th the members of Victory Outreach and three of our co-founders, Ian, Ken, and Shawn, walked from Chestnut Avenue to Richland Street collecting trash, pulling weeds out of the sidewalks, sweeping, and clearing the gutters. The fulfillment granted by our efforts shown through when folks driving by on Main would honk and wave in support of our work. The sense of accomplishment felt by the Victory Outreach members and the Clean Up Main Street team was very apparent by the smiles on their faces and the spring in their steps as they worked tirelessly to improve their surroundings.
It’s wonderful to see a community so committed to the improvement and care of it’s surroundings. In the few short days since the official debut of Clean Up Main Street at the jazz festival at Original Mike’s we have seen a flood of donations and commitments to get involved. With so many people supporting this community improvement project it won’t be long before you begin to see a noticeable difference in the appearance of Main Street. Along with a make over of the appearance of our city will come improved economy and greater commerce being brought right to our doorsteps.
We would like to take a moment to thank all of the most recent supporters of this effort. Elva’s Beauty Supply has given their commitment to clean up the east side of the 600 block. The team at Main Street Liquor is going to be taking care of the west side of the 600 block. Pro Services of Santa Ana has committed to picking up around their business on the east side of the 400 block. Kelly’s Body Shop is committed to cleaning up their piece of Main Street on the east side of the 2000 block. And last but surely not least, Marisa and Carlos over at Videoland+ are pledging their support by cleaning up the east side of the road across from their business between Bishop and Camile.
With so many citizens rising to the challenge in support of Clean Up Main Street there will be a noticeable improvement before you know it. Driving this community forward is a mission of many and falls on the shoulders of every citizen of this wonderful city in which we live and work. Let’s get involved in the wellbeing of our community and city as a whole and let’s get Main Street cleaned up and back to its original state of splendor.
