Summary

Arch Street spent its time this summer cleaning up trash and clearing out overgrowth. The group had two successful community planning meetings to discuss issues of drug use and vagrancy in the park. They had two workdays clearing out multifloras rose and overgrowth on the edges to increase visibility in the park. The second planning meeting involved representatives of the Liveable City Initiative to advocate for the removal of a dead tree and a gate with a lock to discourage drug use and littering.
