Copyright © 2021 Roswell Daily Record

As this year’s Community Investment Project enters its final month, the Roswell Police Department (RPD) and local business sponsors will again be hosting a free public lunch event this Saturday.

It will take place at Carpenter Park in southeast Roswell from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and will be the third and final community lunch during this year’s Community Investment Project. Carpenter Park is located on Buena Vista Street just east of Southeast Main Street.

Those attending will be able to visit with officers while enjoying plenty of good food.

The Roswell Fire Department will also be there, offering children a chance to participate in the ‘Kids Combat Challenge Course.’ The course lets kids test their skills at some firefighting-related activities.

Pizza, chips and drinks will be provided to the public. The pizza is provided by Domino’s, the chips by Spring River Dental, and drinks by Otero Federal Credit Union.

The city of Roswell’s Code Enforcement Division is also participating in the Community Investment Project.

Code Enforcement officers have been addressing properties in need of attention within the project areas, as well as helping residents with access to a number of resources available — lawn-service lists, vehicle-removal companies, building and fencing permit direction and referrals, among others.

Code Enforcement can help residents improve their neighborhoods by offering a variety of services. People can contact Code Enforcement at 575-637-6280 to request assistance with disposal of unwanted items, clean up of medians and cul-de-sac islands, alley cleanups and large-item removal, as well as graffiti removal and removal of dangerous or dead trees on city rights of way.

Learn more about the areas that have been visited by the Community Investment Project and other information about the project on the city’s website at http://roswell-nm.gov/CivicAlerts.aspx?AID=507.
