Alley Clean Up
- Today is a wonderful day in Brookland. The City workers are in the alley
behind my house, picking up the debris. The shopping carts are gone and I
feel there has been a tremendous amount of progress made in just the past 10
A special thank you to Francine P. Edmonds, Ward 5 Neighborhood Services,
Executive Office of the Mayor!
She was the key figure in getting the job done and I thank her for caring
about the this neighborhood, the people living in the neighborhood and the
city at large. She has restored my faith in the city's system for
accomplishing the impossible.
I hope the residents next to me, will take the clean up as a sign of care
and help me keep it clean. I also hope other Brooklanders will do their part
in keeping the whole neighborhood as pristine as possible.
I am also hoping it will keep the vagrants out, because they will see we
have noticed and plan on cleaning it up. There has been an increase in
unsavory activity in the alley, the past few weeks and even my security
cameras are not a deterrent for these guys.
Thanks again to Francine!
