The City of Chula Vista and the South Bay Sustainable Communities network call on volunteers to register for the 19th annual Beautify Chiua Vista neighborhood cleanup. 

The annual event is hosted by Chula Vista Mayor Mary Casillas Salas on Oct. 22, and the neighborhood beautification will run from 8:30 a.m. through noon. Beautification activities will take place at two locations: 

• Otay Community Center, 3554 Main Street, Chula Vista, CA 91911

• City Hall, 276 Fourth Avenue, Chula Vista, CA 91910. 

Volunteers are needed to help remove graffiti, assist with landscape mulching and clean up tons of litter from streets, parks, and neighborhoods. Event organizers expect about 300 volunteers to make a lasting impact. 

The event was made possible with the collaboration of the Chula Vista City Council and South Bay Sustainable Communities Network. According to event organizers, students may earn community service hours. The free event also poses an opportunity for residents to lend a helping hand to the community. 

Participants must provide their own transportation, and are advised to wear appropriate clothing and shoes, bring work gloves, a refillable water bottle, and snacks or lunch.

All volunteers must register prior to the event. 

For details and registration for individuals or groups, please visit For registration questions, please contact the City’s Environmental Services Division at or call (619) 691-5122.
