Crime and Safety Meeting July 18 6PM – 7:30PM

We have all been reading about or living with more issues of livability in Seward.  Whether it be drug dealing on the street, possible prostitution, a house break-in or a cement thrown through a plate glass window, it is all unacceptable.  We need to work together to figure out how to turn the tables on this action and make sure all of Seward is safe and a place where we feel safe sending our children out to play.

Please join SNG at Matthews Park on Wednesday, July 18 from 6 – 7:30 PM to discuss the issues our neighbors are facing and brainstorm ways to prevent further criminal activity.

Shun Tillman, the Seward Crime Prevention Specialist, will be attending and we have invited both Cam and Abdi and their staff to attend the meeting also.
