The Southeast Memphis Community Development Corporation and the University of Memphis Southeast Initiative will host the third in a series of quarterly community safety briefings March 26 at 6 p.m. at the Hickory Hill Community Center, 3910 Ridgeway Road.
The meeting is open to the public, and all persons interested in the future of southeast Memphis are encouraged to attend.
Inspector Bishop Mays, commander of the new Ridgeway Police Station, will update area residents about the Police Department’s “Blue CRUSH” initiative to reduce crime in Hickory Hill neighborhoods and surrounding areas.
Emily Trenholm of the Coalition for Livable Communities will discuss the long-term benefits of planned growth and how established neighborhoods can be “retrofitted” into better communities. Following the “Smart Growth” presentation, residents will break into small groups to discuss how the principles can benefit their own neighborhoods.
The event is part of an ongoing series of community meetings with residents, the faith community, public agencies, the U of M, and other non-profit organizations. For more information, call Kathy Krueger at 901/273-2870.
