Councilmember Rex Richardson invites residents and students to participate in the “3rd Annual 9th District Spring Cleaning Challenge” throughout the month of April. This annual community challenge aims to clean up and beautify the neighborhoods within the district before the summer months arrive.

During the month of April, Councilmember Richardson encourages 9th District residents to report all instances of potholes, graffiti, dumped items, damaged street signs, and other basic maintenance issues to the GO Long Beach Application or the Council District 9 office.

The community challenge is issued to both individuals and neighborhood associations. Individuals that have the most items reported will be recognized at the end of the month. The neighborhood association with the most reported items during this month will receive a $500 grant for a neighborhood improvement project.

“I am excited about this great opportunity to solicit our residents and students into the collective upkeep of our community,” stated Councilmember Richardson. “This year, I challenge my neighbors to beat last year’s challenge by submitting 500 maintenance issues. Let the cleaning begin!”

Residents can submit a report using three different ways:

  1. Download the “GO Long Beach” smart phone application
  2. Calling the 9th District council office at 562-570-6137.
  3. Submitting an item by visiting

  1. Love this clean-up idea! Would love the entire city to have a “Clean and Beautify” month. BTW – I wrote you re: the uncovered coal trains and haven’t heard anything. Did you follow up re: that issue? What happened?
