MAYOR JAMES ANNOUNCES SUCCESSFUL LAUNCH OF NEIGHBORHOODS FIRST - OPERATION CLEAN STREETS |PHASE TWO

102 Vehicles Citywide ‘Red Tagged’ During Phase Two; Operation Targets Abandoned Vehicles through Aggressive WPBPD Enforcement

West Palm Beach Mayor Keith A. James announces a very successful launch of Neighborhoods First – Operation Clean Streets Phase Two. The initiative is designed to curb illegal dumping in our neighborhoods through education, enforcement and prevention.

Launched at a press conference on October 17, 2019, Phase Two of Operation Clean Streets involves the identification, tagging and removal of abandoned vehicles in our city. In the first few hours after the launch, the City’s illegal dumping task force ‘red tagged’ 102 vehicles citywide. ‘Red tagging’ is the act of giving a warning notice that a vehicle parked on a public street will be towed if it is not removed within three days. WPBPD towed 130 vehicles in 2018.

“Neighborhoods First - Operation Clean Streets is designed to improve the quality of life for all residents by prioritizing and then responding to neighborhood concerns,” said Mayor James. “By addressing illegal dumping, which includes abandoned vehicles, we are continuing to promote the health, safety and well-being of our residents and ensuring their neighborhoods remain a source of pride. We want our residents to know that we are working hard to make improvements in all of our neighborhoods.”

Pink Lemonade Under the Parasols: A Community Engagement Activity 

1200 N. Flagler Drive

Monday, October 21, 2019 (4:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.)

The Office of Community Engagement and the Art in Public Places (AiPP) program invite residents and visitors for Pink Lemonade Under the Parasols: A Community Engagement Activity with Daily tlj, the artist collective commissioning Shade Parade, a unique temporary art installation for the City of West Palm Beach.

Based on previous public workshops Daily tous les jours determined that the community desired public art that would create a distinct experience, promote walking, and make connections between people of all ages. Daily tlj describes Shade Parade as “transforming our need for protection from the natural elements into magical collective moments while making the street a place of delight and surprise.” The art is made up of four large brightly colored sunshades that, when used, glide effortlessly on an I-beam rail installed on the sidewalk in two sections that make up 300 linear feet. The design of the installation promotes users to stroll, perform, cooperate, and connect with one another in meaningful ways. matched the funds.
