Fair Haven is a Diverse Community with a Rich History and a Beautiful Waterfront
Discussed Current Problems / Issues in Neighborhood:
1.) Drugs + Prostitution @ Grafton and Ferry
2.) Illegal Dumping @ business + homes in Fair Haven
3.) Dates for CD sponsored / supported events
4.) Importance of Neighbors to Neighbor relationships in the rebuilding of Fair Haven
Discussed ways to end the blight of the warehouse on Chatham + Ferry by enlisting community members to participate in a clean-up of the problem property.
Talked about ways to stem the "negative forces" we battle in Fair Haven - from illegal dumping to open drug dealing etc. Recently Joan + family had 10 bags of leaves dumped on her property. There is illegal dumping all over Fair Haven streets / property and others who are content to be a disruptive force. We combat the "negative forces" with positive action. Community Service, Youth Programs, Neighbors taking care of other Neighbors etc. We want to encorage CSNA membership involvement in the many activities of CSNA and partner organizations who are promoting events focused on creating POSITIVE change in Fair Haven.
We posted a tree-planting event on the CSNA calendar + announcend the dates for the Grafton / Ferry Block Party (August 21). In addition, CD Team + Ferry Stree Block Watch is actively cleaning up the streets and talking with neighbors on the 1 and 3 Saturdays of each month from 10 am to 11 am starting at 167 Grafton Street. Come and Join.
