It is a grassroots effort supported by the City and the Blue Ribbon Task Force dedicated to Santa Clarita youth 24 years of age and younger who have died in traffic-related incidents.
Those wishing to submit names to be placed in the Youth Grove may do so by completing and signing a release form, available at santa-clarita.com/blueribbon or via phone at(661) 250-3731 , and mailing it to City of Santa Clarita, Community Services Division, 20880 Centre Pointe Parkway, Santa Clarita, Ca 91350.
The City and the Blue Ribbon Task force, formed in 2000 to educate the community about teen alcohol, drug and tobacco use, hope that the Grove will serve as a powerful reminder to prompt citizens to vow to be more mindful and responsible behind the wheel.
