Residents 18 years and older are invited to attend an orientation session on the city’s Blight Buster Volunteer Program from 6 to 8 p.m. on Tuesday at the Neighborhood Services Department’s west facility, 3325 W. Flower St.

During the meeting, interested volunteers will receive a comprehensive overview of the free training program. Attendees also will be fingerprinted as part of the security screening background check process.

The rest of the training program includes two separate modules, which will educate residents on how to address a variety of blight-related issues in their community, including use of an airless paint sprayer and GPS cameras, coordinate with youth and adult volunteers, instruct schools and organizations on how to eliminate blight, address illegal signs placed in public right of ways and more.

Participants also will learn how to use the Tool Lending Program and how to effectively set up and manage a community cleanup.

Upon completion, graduates will receive identification by the city, a uniform and other resources to help carry out their assignments.

Walk-ins welcome. For more detailed information on the volunteer program or to RSVP, call (602) 534-4444 or email
