Carole Meekins: Positively Milwaukee

From drug dealing to children playing

  • Print

Imagine a park that was once the sight of drinking and drug dealing replaced with the sounds of kids playing. That's just part of the transformation that has taken place at 29th and Melvina.

It's one of 4 central city neighborhoods that has gotten a facelift. It's the result of volunteers and several local agencies working together. Those agencies include Rock the Lakes, Safe and Sound, Tri-Angle Neighborhood Association, and Northwest Side Community Development Corporation.

Residents feel safer, and have more pride in the area. I'll share this heartwarming story coming up soon on Live at 5:00. Stay tuned.
