Vinegar Hill, Pacific Avenue Targeted for Clean-Up

The nonprofit group Clean San Pedro has received a government contract to clean Vinegar Hill and north Pacific Avenue.

The $24,999 contract is a pilot program within a multi-faceted redevelopment plan underway in downtown and eastern San Pedro.

The program was created and funded by the Community Redevelopment Agency of the City of Los Angeles.

The agency is overseeing San Pedro’s Pacific Corridor redevelopment project, which encompasses the areas that Clean San Pedro will target over the course of its six-month contract.
