To improve public safety, neighborhood residents formed the Clay Street Public Safety Team in October 2002. This group successfully revived the Neighborhood Watch program, executed the recommendations contained in the Clay Street Community Safety Plan developed by the Neighborhood Design Center, initiated additional police foot patrols, started Radio Clay Street and Let’s Play Chess, and developed a joint Housing Authority Safety Plan for City public housing. The team meets at 9:00 a.m. on the third Wednesday of each month at the Stanton Center.
Lastly, to strengthen community leadership, the City helped Town Pines Court residents reactivate their Homeowners Association. Since then, the group submitted the revival papers, elected a board of directors and officers, and developed by-laws and parking rules. The Board meets on the third Monday of every month at the Stanton Center.
