Community Clean Up

Many unincorporated areas of Modesto are plagued with trash due to illegal dumping.

CRLA’s Community Equity Initiative (CEI) works with leaders in disadvantaged unincorporated communities to advance equitable development and investment in community services and infrastructure. Many unincorporated areas of Modesto, for example, are plagued with trash due to illegal dumping. In January, residents of Parklawn, one unincorporated community near Modesto, came together to clean up their neighborhoods. With support from CEI, these residents successfully advocated for their cleanup needs with Stanislaus County Supervisor Jim DeMartini, who secured four dumpsters using discretionary funds. This month, supervisors will be voting to approve a dedicated $100,000 for a multifaceted approach to keep these communities clean.
