When City Manager Eric Anderson announced the ambitious “Tacoma Safe and Clean” program in April, some thought it was a little too ambitious: The goals were to reduce crime by 50 percent in 14 months and rid the streets of junk and debris.

But 22 teams around the city started working, and they’ve made progress. So much progress, in fact, that the city has created a Web site to allow you to track progress and volunteer opportunities daily. Go

here for a look.

Oh, and those teams are cleaning up the streets within the city’s current budget by partnering with the communities.

We’ll have a story in tomorrow’s paper. In the meantime, have you noticed anything in your corner of Tacoma?
