Daniela Ojeda and Natalie Gillette
Adopt-An-Alley Partner of the Year:

Alleyways, like many other cities, hold a distinct position in Riverside. They are often not in direct sight of passers-by and can often be overlooked. The upkeep of our alleyways is imperative to keeping our city clean and beautiful as well as giving citizens proper access to various businesses, properties, and streets.

Kara Coronado and Residents of Eastside Active in Leadership (REAL)
Adopt-A-Street Partner of the Year:

Streets are in the direct view and pathway of the public. The upkeep of our city streets is imperative to the well-being of all patrons who use them. Our streets determine the beauty of a block or neighborhood, school or business, and they greatly impact safety. Our volunteers and partners have done a wonderful job of not only supporting our city staff but also taking the initiative to maintain our streets.
