From Forest View Facebook:

We are having our neighborhood meeting Thursday, January 30th at 6:00pm at Living Water Community Center/Westover in order to address the important and lingering issues from 2019.

Councilman Jones and Councilwoman Larson, as well as Lieutenant Prendergast with other police officers, will be attending this meeting to hear our neighborhood thoughts and concerns.

Many of the crime issues from the previous decade are still very present in our lives and we need to continue to put our efforts into solving them. This meeting will be focused on the most pressing issues that persisted in 2019. The consistent violence seen in our neighborhood despite many efforts to be an active neighborhood watch is very concerning.

Drugs and gun violence remain very present and need to be addressed with new options. Our city officials need to hear from us in a constructive way that allows them to make decisions to improve our neighborhood well-being.

We all want a positive and safe environment for retirees, families, and kids alike, but this takes our due diligence to find a working solution. The city and police officials need our input in order for them to help us.

Please mark January 30th your calendar and come to hear how our neighborhood is doing. Everyone working together can make our community stronger for 2020.

Let’s start the decade off right and make our community environment/involvement a priority in our lives. See you on Thursday, January 30!!
