“For a long time, we’ve been trying unsuccessfully to get different city agencies to clean up the trash along Palisades Drive,” Cron explained. “Rather than continuing to wait and complain, we decided to take care of it on our own.”

Cron reported that the group felt “really great” about taking care of their neighborhood.
