The Hamilton Hill Neighborhood Association held a press conference across from the corner of Albany and Paige Streets on Thursday, to announce an initiative to clean up a main thoroughfare in the neighborhood.
The original Hamilton Hill Neighborhood Association has been working for months on efforts to clean up the neighborhood. The group decided to focus on a specific area in order to make an impact and chose Albany Street, a mixed use residential and business corridor that is immediately adjacent to downtown.
Through a walking survey of Albany Street, neighborhood association members observed that the street, lots and alleys were littered with trash and debris including several businesses. Here pro active co-owner of Newest Lunch, Dean Plakas speaks about the the litter problems in the neighborhood with Charles Burch, and Marva Isaacs of the Hamilton Hill Neighborhood Association.
