Downtown Neighborhood Association Talks To City Officials About Concerns


The Downtown Neighborhood Association holds forums throughout the year to let residents share concerns with city officials. On Wednesday evening, members brought up questions to the Tourism Advisory Committee, the City Citizen's Office, and the SCMPD Commander of the Downtown Precinct.

Concerns ranged from double-decker tour buses, crime/safety, and homelessness in the area.

"Some of the problems with the poor who seem to be in the Squares a lot and we certainly want to be compassionate but we are concerned there seem to be a right many of them," said resident Larry Lee.

Opponents of the double-decker tour buses believe the busses will bring extra noise, pollution, and less privacy to the area.

The Downtown Neighborhood Association is also starting up its first neighborhood watch to keep a tighter eye on anything that might seem out of place.

The next Downtown Neighborhood Association meeting will be in April.
