April 25, 2012 (San Diego's East County) -- The City of San Diego passed a resolution today declaring April 28th Creek to Bay cleanup day. According to Council Member Sherri Leightner (District One) this “will encourage all residents of the City of San Diego to take care of the environment.”
There will be cleanup events at over 57 inland locations where East County residents can participate, such as La Mesa, Lakeside, Santa Ysabel and more. This means removing trash before it reaches our oceans. It is an important activity in its tenth year since it helps to reduce a significant source of pollution county wide.
This encourages city, and county residents, in taking care of our environment. Last year Creek to Bay had 5300 volunteers, and this year they expect more. Also each Council Member has designated resources from their districts to help with this important effort.
According to Pauline Martinson the city helped with supplies and other logistical support.
Council Member Sherri Leightner presented the City Declaration to Pauline Martinson, Ex Director of “I Love a Clean San Diego.”
