With numerous ongoing street resurfacing projects, park improvements underway, and the new Clean Compton Initiative to strategically address dumping and graffiti, there is a major shift happening in the cleanliness of our great city!
Our beloved city of Compton has been blighted by illegal dumping, graffiti, and neglect. The Clean Compton Initiative is a citywide comprehensive and targeted effort to sustainably beautify, clean, abate and maintain the cleanliness of our city through strategically targeted city services, municipal code enforcement, and community partnerships.
As part of the Clean Compton Initiative, city staff have
• Assigned a taskforce to target illegal dumping hotspots around the city on a more frequent basis;
• Identified graffiti hotspots where permanents deterrents will be installed such as murals, and foliage wall coverings;
• Ramped up the enforcement of municipal codes for residences, businesses and vacant landowners that are out of compliance with the maintenance of their property.
Compton Chamber of Commerce honors and strongly supports these efforts.
Please use the below link to the City of Compton official webpage in order to report dumping, graffiti or residents, and business that are maintaining their property truly poorly.
On the same city webpage, you will also find a list of the municipal codes, contacts for pick and other resources to help improve the cleanliness of our community.
