Albany neighborhood gets money for changes

April 16, 2008

Albany -- An Albany community gets money to keep their streets beautiful. The Wadkins Neighborhood Association in South Albany got $2,000 from a Community Enhancement Grant.

They'll use the money to landscape the area around a tower on the corner of Martin Luther King, Jr Boulevard and Wadkins Avenue.

They hope that keeping it up will help reduce crime as well as honor the civil rights leader the street is named after.

"This is located on Martin Luther King Junior Drive and anything in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. should be up kept at all times. So we took the initiative to adopt this for the neighborhood," said James Idlett.

"The citizens in this community and the people who travel this road will see a magnificent change," said Ward VI City Commissioner, Tommie Postell.

Any community interested in applying for this grant can contact Keep Albany-Dougherty Beautiful at 430-5257.
