The Wabash Valley is a beautiful place to call home, but for some it is a struggle.
Improving the look of our community was identified as an area of need throughout our community conversations. Our neighbors feel a general sense of apathy, due in large part to the aesthetics of some of our neighborhoods, and this leads to worries about crime. We also heard that there was a lack of unity in our community and improving the overall morale was a concern.
Why it Matters
People want to live in a place they are proud to call home. With security concerns and a sense of apathy there could be a hesitancy to better oneself or their family. This sense of fear and distrust can hinder the whole community from coming together.
What We Are Doing
We will be creating a focus impact council based on building overall community pride by strengthening neighborhoods and increase volunteerism by hosting a community volunteer website.
Reduce crime and drugs, while addressing blight and improving civic engagement.
