This is a community group whose goal is to rid the area in the 4000 block of N. Broadway of loitering and public intoxication. We will hold our meeting in the same area that loitering takes place all day long, October 16 at 7pm outside "Public Storage" 4050 Broadway. We want to take back this area of our community. We will continue to discuss the following at the meeting:
*Recent arrests in the 4000 block of North Broadway
*Police follow-up to the ongoing problems of public drinking
*U-haul’s progress on security cameras on their property
*Alderman’s Office follow up on contacting U-haul corporate about fences all the way around the property
*Problem solve how we can get better follow up on our concerns in the area
If you have a dog, please continue to walk past the area and call 911 if you see something illegal. We need all the community members we can get who want to help solve this very difficult problem. Just coming to the meetings and standing in that area for 45 minutes has had a very big impact. The guys who stand there are very upset that we continue to do this. If you have been to the last few meetings you have seen this demonstrated first hand. When I walk by that area they often get upset when I check if anyone is drinking. Our time and effort has not been wasted but we will need to continue to work at it. Please try to attend the meeting and pass the date on to your friends and neighbors who live in the area. Anyone is welcome to come, even your dog!
