Before: Chris Williams, an Associate with RE/MAX Olsen and Associates and a former NWNC board member, stands by overgrown foliage on Plummer Street.
After: The same section of Plummer Street after Operation Clean Sweep was there.
If you’ve noticed your neighborhood is cleaner with less trash and trimmed back foliage, you can thank the Northridge West Neighborhood Council’s Operation Clean Sweep for it. They are out on the streets of Northridge West every Thursday and some Saturdays to make sure that your neighborhood maintains its curb appeal and property values.
On May 16, NWNC’s Operation Clean Sweep team, including Ron Wengler, Debbie Penmen, Chair of the Beautification Committee Glen Wilson, Rusty Feuer, Chris Williams and Peter Lasky, cleared debris and trash on Plummer Street near the Northridge Mall.
NWNC’s Operation Clean Sweep, which includes members of the NWNC and community members, has made a huge difference in the levels of trash on the sidewalks and streets of the Northridge West area.
“It is hard work knocking down those weeds and cleaning it all up,” noted NWNC President Peter Lasky, but he added, “It’s gratifying at the same time.” To find out more, make suggestions, or to help with the cleanups which occur every Thursday, contact Peter Lasky at
On Saturday, May 28, Lasky and Wilson worked side-by-side with 15 members of the Monroe High School Key Club cleaning gutters, sidewalks, and sewer drains on Wilbur Avenue from Chatsworth Avenue to Tribune Street. NWNC would like to give special thanks to Granada Hills’ Key Club member Jenna Mattinson for helping to set up the event.
