Operation Just Fix It
365 Days of Constituent-Focused Problem Solving

In order to make a problem-area clean, safe and sustainable for residents, it is important that the community be involved in improving the area. "Operation Just Fix It" is Mayor Adrian M. Fenty's multi-agency initiative aimed at abating areas where crime, blight and compliance issues require participation from more than one DC Government agency. "Fix Its" usually cover a 2-3 block radius and are aimed to improve the quality of life for residents, businesses and patrons.

Mayor's Office of Community Outreach and Services (MOCRS) work with residents to identify and prioritize problem areas in a given ward. MOCRS then coordinate the efforts of the other District Government agencies on its Core Team to develop a multi-coordinated agency strategy designed to solve the problems and assign agency resources needed to abate these issues.

Through Mayor Fenty's "Operation Just Fix It" programs, the Mayor's Office of Community Relations and Services works hands-on with other agencies to bring remedy to such problem areas.

I'm so all for fixin' shit and cleanin' shit. I just wish Fenty and his peeps could find a slogan less pathetic than "Operation Just Fix It."

Got any ideas?
