SAN ANTONIO – Creating safer, cleaner and healthier communities is the city's goal for two east side neighborhoods.

NEAT Sweep kicked off Thursday in Denver Heights and Alamodome Gardens neighborhoods. NEAT stands for neighborhood empowerment action team. It's a 30-day program that will focus on bringing coordinated services to the area.

Metro Health was on-site Thursday providing residents with flu shots. Animal care services also provided microchips for pets.
