Citizens to host town hall meeting on substandard housing concerns
A group of New Albany residents plan to host a town hall meeting regarding concerns over substandard housing and related issues at 5:30 p.m., Monday at the Union County Courthouse.
According to Phyllis Stanford, a resident of Murrah Rd., the meeting is being organized by her neighbors as both a Neighborhood Watch start-up and an opportunity for the public to discuss safety issues around the city.
“The first hour, from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. will be a set up for our street’s Neighborhood Watch program,” Stanford said. “A few of our neighbors sent off for information about it.”
She said that because the national organization likes for Neighborhood Watch groups to be small, this one will be for Murrah Road residents.
Stanford said at 6:30 p.m., the meeting will be opened up to other members of the public to share their concerns regarding substandard housing, more specifically the issue of trailer parks.
Stanford said organizers will also encourage the public to attend Tuesday’s board of aldermen meeting.
