Nice to seel something positive happening in Wrigley. Now please, clean up Pacific Ave. That once was a nice place to shop. As a matter of fact, there is a lot of cleaning-up to do in Wrigley.

Hi Passingthrough,

You are right, there is much work to be done to clean up our neighborhood. The Neighborhood Advisory Group and the Wrigley Association are working with the Redevelopment Agency to clean up Pacific Ave with a sustainable themed Wrigley Village Street Scape project. This will help attrach new businesses and life into Wrigley. I invite you to join us at the next meeting on Thursday, 7/17/08 from 6-730PM at 2023 Pacific at the Police Community Center to bring your ideas and enthusiasm.

I think this is a great program! I'd love to know more about it. I moved from LA down to Wrigley a year ago and would like to get more involved in the community. I see great potential here. When is the next meeting?
