We encourage members from all the Civic Leagues in the Greater Wards Corner Partnership Area to join us for our meeting this Thursday. We will be discussing the importance of working together to get the change we all need and want to see in our area. Since 1995 we have all sat and watch while other areas of the city have taken our tax dollars and been redeveloped. We have listened to the promises and watched as our area fallen prey to more and more blight. The time for action is now, and only working together can we make it happen. There is no more Wards Corner Comprehensive Plan we need a new one. Come and let’s discuss it your neighbors, what do we want to see here in our area. The business district can’t change without the redevelopment of the ghetto first and we can make that happen together.
We hope enough people in this area are ready to get involved to bring this change about. The time is right, the time is now.
Hope to see you Thursday night at 7:00 p.m. in Room 204 at the Workforce Development Center.

Although we will not be meeting during the summer, it doesn’t mean that we will not be working to try and make Wards Corner a better place; and keeping involved with what is going on in the city and the things that affect us all in this area. We ask that everyone make a special effort to attend Thursday’s meeting, even if you have never attended a meeting before, so that we may bring you up to date with some of the important issues that will make a Big difference in our area come September.

WVEC 13News has done a story on Portsmouth Sheriff Bill Watson and his Community Enforcement Unit which has had much success in the Cradock area of Portsmouth. We previously reported on Cradock in our article Cradock is taking Cradock back. The Sheriff is seeking Portsmouth City Council’s permission to expand the successful program, possibly outside of the City’s borders.
The newsclip reminds viewers that the Partnership meeting this Thursday will include Lt. Cherry with the Community Enforcement Unit of the Portsmouth Sheriff’s office who helped to set up the watch program in Portsmouth.
