Meet the Neighbors: Webb Britton Estates Participates in Fish Creek Cleanup Challenge

The City is proud to feature Webb Britton Estates in an all-new episode of Meet the Neighbors, a program on MyArlingtonTV that spotlights neighborhoods large and small across Arlington.

Troubled by the discarded cans, glass and plastic bottles, shopping carts and other debris fouling the shores of Fish Creek near her southeast Arlington neighborhood, Angel Carter turned to social media for help.

Carter launched the Fish Creek Cleanup Challenge on Facebook, urging volunteers from the Webb Britton Estates neighborhood and beyond to help spruce up a four-mile section of the creek between Matlock Road and State Highway 360.

Residents from the Webb Britton Estates neighborhood and volunteers throughout The American Dream City participated in the cleanup event on February 9, 2019, along with the Arlington Highlands Rotary Club and St. Andrew’s United Methodist Church. The City of Arlington provided resources for the event, including trash bags, large trash containers and gloves.

Neighborhoods wanting to learn more about City services available for neighborhood projects should send questions to neighborhoods@arlingtontx.gov.

The City’s Office of Communication develops programming for MyArlingtonTV. Viewers can find MyArlingtonTV programs on the following cable systems: Spectrum Channel 16 and AT&T U-Verse channel 99, and streaming capabilities at www.arlington-tx.gov.

All episodes are also available on the City’s YouTube channelFacebook page and Twitter account.

  1. We had almost 300 people come out on a very cold and rainy day. So many people to thank.
    City staff took the time to meet with Angel and myself to make this clean up a success. Special thanks to Sergio Erazo from Code Enforcement, Dylan Dunavin and Armando Belmares from Parks and Recreation. You guys are the best! The work you do each and every day is greatly appreciated.

  2. Rah rah! Great job! But why has the Arlington Parks and Recreation Department neglected this trail for so long? The trash is an embarrassment, and the responsibility for regular cleanups should not be placed on the backs of residents. That is why we pay taxes. This neighborhood has much bigger problems than litter, though. The dirty gas wells spewing dangerous toxins into our air shed 24/7 are too close for comfort and present more than an aesthetic blight on the Webb Britton community, but also a health and safety risk.
