Clean Streets/ Safe Streets

Clean Streets/ Safe Streets Clean Streets/ Safe Streets is a neighborhood wide initiative to beautify Little Village through the organization and implementation of neighborhood clean ups.

Clean Streets Safe/ Streets is a collaborative effort between community based organizations(CBOs)that aims to beautify Little Village by having organizations adopt and maintain the areas around their respective locations. The idea is based around the broken window theory which states that monitoring and maintaining urban environments in a well-ordered condition may stop further vandalism and escalation into more serious crime. The maintenance of these spaces will look different based on each organizations capacity. For example organizations that work with people in the neighborhood may decide to organize residents on the block to maintain these areas themselves while an organization that does not may simply choose to cut the grass around their building and keep an eye out for graffiti and littering. In both approaches the space is being maintained, creating an area conducive to the reduction of crime and encouraging neighbors to take personal responsibility over the appearance of their neighborhood.
