VALLEJO - Recently, the Vallejo Police Department (VPD) Community Services Section (CSS) and Code Enforcement coordinated a major cleanup of the parking lot located on the 5000 Block of Sonoma Boulevard. VPD Code Officers initiated the private property abatement to reduce blight in the City by removing a number of abandoned vehicles and debris. (see photos)
The abatement project follows a series of reports made by community members via social media, calling for an overhaul of the lot, known to some as the "old Walmart" or "Food 4 Less" parking lot.
As the department continues to tackle blight in the City, we encourage community members to do their part in taking care of their neighborhoods and private property. On Friday, October 2, 2020, the VPD Traffic Division conducted another public property abatement operation to address more abandoned vehicles in the City. The results of that operation are forthcoming.
