SERVING MY NEIGHBORHOOD
I serve on the following committees:
The Save Race Street Committee (vice-chair) - working to improve the quality of life on my street.
Watch Plus - Block Watch Plus, a program of Operaion Better Block Inc.,
is an assembly of members from the block watch associations sponsored
by OBB. I am on the BWP executive committee and the vacant property
Bridging the Busway - a committee engaged in
developing a plan for transit-oriented development centered around the
Homewood Avenue stop of the Martin Luther King, Jr. East Busway. The
project name arises from the fact that the Busway now forms a hard barrier
between Homewood and the neighborhood to its south, North Point Breeze.
524 Steering Committee - a former church near the busway stop is being
redeveloped as a coffee shop, which, according to plans, will be
eligible for a LEED Platinum certification.
The Homewood Children's Village (Leadership Committee) - a project to replicate, on a smaller scale, the success of the Harlem Children's Zone.
