Neighborhood Walk to Focus on Blight

Second Precinct officers will join forces tomorrow with members of the Orlando Broad Rock Civic Association to focus on blighted properties in the area.

The group will meet 9:30 a.m. Saturday, May 8, at the Evangelical Assembly of God Church, 2013 Broad Rock Boulevard, to tour the Hickory Hill neighborhood and note any instances of blight along McKay, Leake and South Kinsley avenues.

“Blight is one of the problem neighborhood issues that can contribute to crime in an area,” Sector 212 Lt. Angela Greene said. “Vacant houses can be havens for those who aren’t looking to contribute to a community in a positive manner.”
