Lompoc Boosting Block Parties for 4th of July

The city of Lompoc wants to help the community celebrate 4th of July safely.

Through coordination with the police and fire departments, the Lompoc Recreation Division has created a “block party” application process to urge families and neighbors to celebrate Independence Day together by igniting Safe and Sane fireworks in a safe environment, on closed city streets.

The city has also identified two community parks that can be used to sponsor a block party, Johns-Manville and Ryon parks, and has designated a downtown city parking lot (at Ocean Avenue and South I Street) as a site where residents can safely use their Safe and Sane fireworks.

Block party applications must be submitted for all locations.

Block Party Application packets are available at and at Anderson Recreation Center, 125 W. Walnut Ave. Deadline to submit applications is noon Monday, June 25.

Questions about block parties should be directed to the Lompoc Recreation Division at 805-875-8100.

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!
