"You had a crew working on cutting back bushes and clearing brush at Benchley/Weinberger Elementary School.  I live on Gloria Lake Ave. across the street from the south side of the school.  The bushes have grown through the fence for years at the school and several times I have worked on cutting back the bushes that have grown through the fence on the steps up to the school and on the fence along Gloria Lake.  But, I am thrilled this year because the Urban Corps is doing such a fantastic job cutting back the bushes. Your crew is doing a fantastic job!"

“The bike trail has been an eyesore for years; we walk it every day. Your people did a fantastic job. They cleaned up everything. We really appreciate it. It’s really great that we have (a program) like you in town. We thanked the supervisor and all the young adults on the site, and also want to thank Councilwoman Lorie Zapf and the Urban Corps for making this possible.”

"I would like to give a big compliment to the Urban Corps of San Diego County crews... Both supervisors and crews have been exceptional in performing and completing the tasks given to them and their crew supervision has been nothing but outstanding. Thank you again for providing Mission Trails Regional Park with outstanding field supervisors and crews."

"I want to say thank you on behalf of the Aquatic Environments team. We honestly could not have completed this project without your crew. They're a pleasure to work with … we will definitely be relying on the corps for future projects! Thank you again for all of your hard work and effort!”

"Vincent Perez and his wonderful crew just finished the project at the Buena Vista Lagoon Nature Center.  The site looks wonderful.  The native plants where left and the grasses and invasive removed, the scene is clean.  The crew was polite, and hard working too.  We very much appreciate the hard work in completing the project.  We were very happy with the work Urban Corps did.  Thank you."

"I just want to COMMEND your staff for the excellent, conscientious work they  do along the Highway 75 Silver Strand between Imperial Beach and Coronado. Many times now i have been walking or riding my bike along that stretch when i have witnessed them cleaning up around the bay and wetlands.  Not only does this help protect the Environment, but also the abundance of wildlife which depend on this Habitat - and sets a noble example for the rest of us how to care, nurture, respect the Wonders of Nature!!! ...  With much Appreciation and Admiration"

"Thank you so much! The crew came out yesterday and did an AMAZING job! The entire community appreciates this important service so thank you again and please pass our appreciation on to the individuals that did the work. Many people walk from Euclid along Wightman every day and it makes it so much better (and safer) when the sidewalks are clean and attended to....This is such a huge demonstration to our neighborhood that we’re important and reminds people to take care of the streets around them."

"I wanted to thank you and the Urban Corps  for your work preparing the Georgina Cole Library for re-opening at the end of February. Without this help, the city would have been hard pressed to present a building so ready and welcoming on the occasion of our re-opening celebration. The comments we received from some of the thousands of attendees demonstrated that your work was noticed and greatly appreciated."

"We got a nice surprise on Monday. I looked out my front window to see a crew from Urban Corps cleaning up Poplar Street. They were cleaning up dead leaves, trimming weeds by the sidewalk and just making things look better. Thank you to Urban Corps and to whoever sent them to our street."​

"Thank you and your crew for the great job they did for our neighborhood. I requested weeds be cleared on the easements at the corner of 40th Street and Dwight Street. Not only did they clear the weeds they clean the sidewalks, did across the street and all the way down the block. I am always impressed with the work the crews do for the neighborhoods. Thank you ALL again!"

"On behalf of the Rancho Bernardo Community Council, I want to take this opportunity to thank Urban Corps for responding so quickly to the needs of our community. You always make us feel Rancho Bernardo is your number one priority. We look forward to working with you in 2014."
