TEHACHAPI, Calif. — The Neighborhood Improvement Project says it held a successful Cleanup Day this past weekend in the oldest Tehachapi residential area.

According to city officials, more than 60 yards of bulky debris and trash was collected during the cleanup. Tehachapi Police and Code Enforcement Officers, Tehachapi Mountain Vineyard Church and Mountain Bible Church all assisted with the project.

In a statement, Chief of Police Kent Kroeger said:

“We were out helping people move bulky items from their yards and help beautify their neighborhood. We couldn’t have had the impact we did without the church volunteers which then spread to neighbors coming out and helping neighbors."

The Neighborhood Improvement Project is a Community Oriented Policing project designed to improve the quality of life for residential neighborhoods.
