Block by Block Neighborhood Assessment Pilot Launches in Harbor City

March 2018 was the official launch of a new pilot program in Harbor City to have community members conduct a block by block assessment of the long-term infrastructure needs of the neighborhood. Previously, Councilman Buscaino’s field deputies conducted weekly drives throughout the community to proactively report issues and to visit hot spots based on the information they received from Neighborhood Council meetings, phone calls and emails. This pilot program seeks to multiply their efforts while simultaneously addressing and prioritizing long-term issues.

The Harbor City Neighborhood Assessment Team was formed by the Green Meadows Homeowners Association, the Harbor City Neighborhood Council, and Narbonne High School. The team will work with Councilman Buscaino’s office to divide Harbor City into zones with teams assigned to each zone. The teams will assess everything in the neighborhood from streets to signs to trees to streetlights and more. Once the list is compiled the teams will work with the Council office to contact the relevant city departments and take steps to resolve each issue. With this data set, community members will be able to track the progress of projects and learn the City’s process to address each issue. Thank you to everyone who has been involved so far and to all of the volunteers who will be assessing their neighborhood zones in the future.
