The City of San Bernardino recently came together for a City- Pride, City-Wide Beautification Partnership Day to revitalize and restore local neighborhoods and improve the overall aesthetic appeal.

“Our city has enormous potential,” states SB Mayor Patrick Morris. He continues: “Together we can make an impact that will allow others to see what a difference a day makes in creating a cleaner and greener community.”

“The more we can increase the aesthetic appeal of the city, the more we will see increased local job opportunities through investment and a greater quality of life for all residents,” says Charles McNeely, City Manager.

Esther Jimenez, candidate for San Bernardino City Clerk, recruited 25 family members and life-long neighborhood friends to pull weeds, pick up trash, and mow lawns. Registered as the “Jimenez Family and Friends,” the team represented three generations of Jimenez siblings, nephews, nieces, great-nephews and greatnieces, and more than 50 years of childhood friendships.

“The Jimenez family has lived in the city of San Bernardino for over 100 years,” said Esther Jimenez. “So, it was a given that we would volunteer to participate in the City of San Bernardino Beautification Partnership,” she added.

Young Visionaries also participated and partner with the city in their beautification efforts. They brought youth out to help with the clean up in the hopes of making, “our city a more beautiful place to live in,” states Young Visionaries President, Terrance Stone.
