NEW CASTLE —
Editor, The News:
We are optimistic about the progress and direction of our city.
More residents are becoming involved with positive change.
New Visions and the neighborhood watch groups are helping to eliminate the negative thinking of many residents.
Law enforcement, city and county government are working hard to eliminate crime and reduce slumlords.
District Attorney Joshua Lamancusa and New Castle Police Chief Bobby Salem have said that the tips to the toll-free drug tip hotline have helped build cases and get convictions. They would like to have watch groups on every block because they are effective.
Residents are empowered when they see results from joining together and reporting suspicious behavior on the hot line. Neighbors are calling each other and watching each other’s backs.
With the warmer weather coming, it is especially important to be watchful. Everyone working together with the same goal will turn our community around.
There is a landlords association. Several people have approached us about forming a homeowners cooperative. Many homeowners feel that several current rental properties have devalued their homes and increased crime. If this is something people are interested in, I urge them to contact us.
Residents from all communities are welcome to go to the North Hill Neighborhood Watch meetings. We need to all work together and share ideas.
Our next meeting will be June 25 at 6:30 p.m. at George Washington Intermediate Elementary School.
For information, contact us at (724) 654-7892.
