Monthly ‘Clean & Safe’, ‘Neighborhood Watch’ Program Meetings

(Riviera Beach, FL – November 16, 2017) – The Riviera Beach Community Redevelopment Agency (RBCRA) (www.rbcra.com) will host a Clean and Safe Neighborhood Watch program monthly meeting every third (3rd) Thursday of each month. The first meeting will be on November 16, 2017, from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at Healthy Food Healthy Living, located at 1101 Avenue E, Riviera Beach, FL  33404. Residents will be provided strategies and best practices to keep their neighborhoods safe and protected and will participate in safety and security workshops in an effort to build strong neighborhood relations.

One of the RBCRA missions is to create a welcoming environment that eliminates blight and improves the perception of safety in the area. The Neighborhood Watch Program consists of an organized group of citizens devoted to improving safety and reducing crime by working together to patrol the Riviera Beach Heights and Park Manor South neighborhoods and report suspicious activities to law enforcement. Riviera Beach residents have the option to also join the Clean and Safe team.

The Ambassadors of the Clean and Safe team works together to make a visible difference in the Riviera Beach CRA district. The team meets every day at Ocean Mall and at the Riviera Beach Marina Village, to greet visitors and work alongside law enforcement to assist with safety and security. The Clean and Safe team assists with neighborhood cleanups including the removal of litter, graffiti stickers and posters within the community and power-washing sidewalks and roadway medians.  Some of the benefits for residents participating in these programs are:

  • Developing strong neighborhood relations
  • Educating residents to recognize suspicious activities and take appropriate action
  • Implementing safety and security measures
  • Contributing to the reduction of home burglaries and neighborhood crimes

“A clean neighborhood is a safe neighborhood and we always look for ways to enrich our community and change the perception of redeveloped neighborhoods,” said Scott Evans, Riviera Beach Community Redevelopment Agency interim executive director. “With both programs, residents become part of the Agency’s continuing efforts to make a difference and provide a clean, safe and economically vital place to live, work and play.”

Meeting locations vary and will be announced each month. For more information please contact the Neimah Spence at nspence@rbcra.com or (561) 693-1171 or visit rbcra.com.
