NEW CASTLE —
Editor, The News:
The Mahoningtown community, specifically, Mahoningtown Crime Watch, is frustrated with the tall grass, litter and the lack of a comprehensive cleanup effort on the part of our city.
Failing to get the parks department to clean things up, and realizing it was easier to volunteer than to change policy, neighborhood residents took matters into their own hands and cleaned up the park themselves.
What began as a call-in effort — with the hope of motivating city personnel to clean up Darlington Park — grew into a neighborhood cleaning effort that took care of the eyesore on Liberty Street.
In just four hours, a crew of Mahoningtown Crime Watch members filled up about 15 bags of grass, litter, stones and some unmentionables as well as painted two sets of steps leading into the park and areas around the beautiful train and gazebo that sit in the park.
What a beautiful job. The park looks fantastic. I hope the city will help to take care of some other areas in our local community.
