Bella Vista Ward and Summerfield Ward

Everyone is aware of at least some of the affects of the sharp down turn in the housing industry. One of the side effects is that many people are not aware of who is responsible for keeping bankrupt and abandoned subdivision common areas clean. The developer has the responsibility but usually not the motivation or resources. Gilbert has such subdivisions. The town is a little reluctant to set a precedent  of spending your tax dollars to clean private property. It is clearly a dilemma.

Gilbert is very fortunate that two congregations of one of our local churches. Bella Vista Ward and Summerfield Ward of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints took it upon themselves to clean up one of those eye sores. About a month ago the Bella Vista Ward and last Saturday Summerfield Ward assembled at the weed covered field next to the Higley Post Office on Higley and Ray Rd to clean the field. There is no question the work was hard, and believe me everyone worked. Working with of volunteers was both inspiring and rewarding. There were hundreds of people involved in the project, so it is hard to single out very many, but I would like to thank Eric Scheurn and Bishop David Anderson for making this wonderful project possible. If any other church or service organization has interest doing something like this please call me and I will try and get you containers to put the weeds and debris in.
