Lucretia Steps in Echo Park Clean Up

My office was proud to help neighbors from Grafton, Lucretia, Lemoyne and Lakeshore streets in Echo Park, as well as volunteers from the Central City Action Committee and Aztecs Rising, clean the area around the Lucretia Steps near Grafton.

The Saturday, May 15 clean up saw 30 volunteers clear brush, pull weeds, and clear trash, filling 75 to 100 bags of debris. Central City Action, which is a partner of the Department of Public Works, will return to clean graffiti in the coming days.
Now that the area is clear, community members hope to begin landscaping with succulents and other native plants.
