Rose Park Neighborhood Association hosted two street actions last week that provided neighbors, business owners and community partners the opportunity to voice their concerns regarding the conditions surrounding the area of E7th Street and Dawson.

On Wednesday, November 17th at 9AM neighbors walked with LBPD East Division Patrol Resource Officer Brendan Murphy and Community Liaison Ana Maria Rios. Trash, illegal activity and unsafe walking conditions were among the concerns of residents and business owners.
