Gary Mayor Karen Freeman-Wilson today announced a project she's been collaborating on with former Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley for nine months – the Neighborhood Revitalization Project. Also working with Gary Councilwoman Carolyn Rogers, along with Carol Brown with the University of Chicago and her students, the community wide neighborhood-by-neighborhood cleanup is intended to engage the entire community for the collective good of the city. Sarah Taylor, a Marshalltown Terrace resident, spoke about the need for residents to band together for the good of their neighborhood, and that this pilot project was a reinforcement of that effort. The pilot project kicks off this Saturday in the Marshalltown neighborhood with cleanup , beautification activities, city-provided services, signmaking and abandoned buildings tracking. Residents are meeting at Peppermint Park, Marshalltown Terrace, off of East 23rd Avenue, between Wisconsin Ave and Marshalltown Dr, starting at 9am.
