McKinley School area walkaround planned
Residents of 31st, 32nd, 33rd, and 34th Avenues between 52nd and 60th Streets have been invited to attend a neighborhood walk-around on Friday, August 10th, at 7 pm. They will meet at the McKinley Elementary School Playground, on 33rd Avenue. Participants are encouraged to bring flashlights and wear light-colored clothing.
On Thursday, July 19th, an organizational meeting was held at the Boys and Girls Club for the formation of neighborhood watches in the McKinley School area. The turnout was impressive, and a clear message was sent that the residents of the area are ready, willing, and able to form several watches in the neighborhood.
Scott Gordon, Alderperson of the district, said, “I encourage you to be part of this team. The ultimate goal is to improve the quality of life in your neighborhood and make your neighborhood a safer place to live. In order to achieve this goal, your neighbors need your support and participation in this program. Neighborhood watch has a proven track record of success but only if the residents actively participate.”
There will be another block watch meeting in the very near future. All residents are invited to attend.
