About Us

We're on a mission to keep our neighborhood safe and crime free!

A dedicated group of people who genuinely love Yosemite Street Village, and all that it has to offer: Starting with the people who care about all aspects of this historic community to the neighbors who live, work and play here. These efforts are the beginning of a positive revitalization on the 900 block of Yosemite Street between Acacia and Poplar Street. Friends Of Yosemite Street Village is an action based, grassroot committee that simply wants to see small efforts leading to big changes: to ensure this district is utilized to its fullest potential.

Yosemite Street

Building community through giving.

Many of the challenges facing Yosemite Street Village are not unusual for urban neighborhoods, but that does not mean that the neighborhood should be passive. If YSV is to become a healthier neighborhood it must have good housing for its residents, standards of public safety that encourage children and families to feel safe and thrive. It is a street that has vitality, and a population of residents and business owners who work collaboratively and actively to ensure that the quality of life on the block of Yosemite Street is positive and vibrant.

Participation and resident leadership are the keys to creating a strong neighborhood that identifies needs, advocates for change, and creates the resources to ensure success. Your participation is vital as it empowers and impacts this historic Stockton neighborhood gem, to care for it continuously and to create positive changes for everyone’s joy.

Adopt-A-Flowerbed on Yosemite Street

Join your neighbors and help make Yosemite Street Village a greener and beautiful place for all to enjoy. An invitation to local individuals to join this community flower-bed campaign to care for our street. By adopting a flowerbed, a required weekly visit to the site is necessary to ensure good health of plants, watering, and keeping the area clear of debris.

If possible, a photograph should be taken of the plot prior to commencing work and a second photograph within the year. This will indicate any changes and improvements that may have occurred.
