Assemblyman Williams to Help Adopt-a-Block in Isla Vista

UCSB students and others will gather Nov. 4 in volunteering to clean the streets

Assemblyman Das Williams, D-Santa Barbara, will join UCSB students, leaders and other community members to clean the streets of Isla Vista.

The event is part of Isla Vista Recreation & Park District’s Adopt-a-Block Program and will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday, Nov. 4 at 961 Embarcadero Del Mar.

Those in attendance will have the opportunity to meet their Assemblymember, who grew up in Isla Vista, while helping improve their shared community. Assemblyman Williams also graduated from UCSB’s Bren School of Environmental Science & Management.

“Isla Vista has a rich history of environmental activism and community service. It is critical for community members to continue that tradition and take action to keep our streets and oceans clean,” Williams said. “Isla Vista is a big attraction during the Halloween festivities; the most important time to clean up the town is after that weekend.”

Adopt-A-Block volunteers have picked up more than 11,000 bags of trash and removed more than 800 incidents of graffiti in Isla Vista. Volunteer efforts ensure waste runoff does not pollute Isla Vista oceans and beaches. To sign up, email .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

“This is a great opportunity for our community to come together to take ownership of the appearance and health of this community,” Adopt-A-Block Coordinator Lauren Ward said.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
