Amani Neighborhood Walk

On Monday, May 18, upwards of 40 Common Ground members gathered at Greater New Birth Church for another Amani Neighborhood Walk.  Small teams received their street assignments and then walked door-to-door to canvass residents about the problems caused by the presence of nearby boarded-up and abandoned homes.

Other neighborhood issues also emerged from the conversations (traffic patterns, problem corner stores, drug use and distribution), and they are currently being researched by the Greater New Birth/Immanuel Presbyterian Action Team.  In an effort to create relationships and develop strategies to solve these problems, team members continue to meet with Common Council members, community leaders, assitance organizations, and police officials.
