Susan O'Neil, Paula Degoot, Elaine Ixcot, Toni Cooksey, Tom Myers, Rex and Nancy Cline and others formed the non-profit DelWood Neighborhood Alliance in 2011. It was formed on the heels of the neighboring College Area Neighborhood Alliance and under the non-profit umbrella of Modesto Neighborhoods, Inc. The purpose is to improve the upkeep of the community, make it safer, bring together neighbors to clean up our two City parks -Pike and Garrison - when needed. Also to clean up our alleys, vacant lots and keep an eye out for abandoned housing and maintain a positive communication with City departments and the police.
Coordinating and participating in activities is purely voluntary.
Neighborhoods all over Modesto are forming alliances for safety, graffiti, trees, and many other neighborhood concerns. Any resident can attend meetings and participate on a volunteer basis. This format builds a communication among residents, city officials, and the Modesto Police Department to create a safe, clean, and beautiful neighborhood. What does DNA do?
