The Golden Hill Community Development Corporation (GGHCDC)is calling on Golden Hill and South Park residents to petition councilmembers Todd Gloria and David Alvarez, and Mayor Sanders so that they can get their MAD back.
The call for help comes more than a week after a California appeals court ruled the City improperly created the the maintenance assessment district and ordered the district invalid.
"The beneficial services you have come to expect...such as graffiti removal, refuse collection from public waste containers, tree maintenance, street and sidewalk cleanup and large litter removal, will come to an end unless you speak up," read the message from the Greater Golden Hill CDC.
The message claims that many residents initially opposed the district have changed their mind and want to bring back the MAD.
"You told us that since then you have come to appreciate the tangible benefits to the community as we have quickly fulfilled your requests and addressed your needs to help make improvements in the public right of way. You have further expressed your disappointment in the pending dissolution of the [MAD]. And thus, we realize the importance of fighting to maintain [it]."
