Several dozen people have banded together this summer to help clean up neighborhoods on Milwaukee’s north side. The goal is to eventually reduce crime.
About 25 people are gathered in Garden Homes Square, a huge park on Milwaukee’s north side. They’re ambassadors with the Safe Zone initiative – a city program federal money helps fund.
One member is Antonio Williams, a neighborhood resident. He says one of the group’s first activities will be to clean up the park. Williams says the ambassadors also are urging other residents to pitch in.
