Making Heritage Crossing a safer neighborhood

Posted at 11:19 PM, Jul 29, 2019

BALTIMORE — Mayor Jack Young spent part of his evening at a public safety walk in the Heritage Crossing neighborhood with Commissioner Michael Harrison and Councilman Eric Costello.

Young was asked about the Twitter exchange with President Trump, and he says he is hoping for change.

"I think something positive could come out of this by the president giving us some assistance. We have some unfunded mandates like the EPA with our aging infrastructure that we need help with," Young said. "Every time we have to raise water rates it's because we have to fix an aging infrastructure that he promised once he became president was one of his things was the infrastructure, and it has not happened."

Making Heritage Crossing a safer neighborhood was the main reason for the meeting, but for the people who live there, it is more than just about crime.

"Our goal is to make our community safer and to make our community healthier and to make our community a great place where everyone or anyone would want to live," said Janet Allen, President of the Heritage Crossing Resident Association.
