Everybody's involved, and when everybody in community is involved, bigger companies and the councilwoman and other people, they start to listen, so that's what we're doing.


Our steering committee, they're made up of residents in Davee Gardens, Bellemeade, Oak Grove, that sit on a board. The advocates like myself, we run problems across to them, and they give us feedback, how we should go about it. So, everybody's involved. It's no big corporation, or no one downtown is pushing us. Everybody's involved, and when everybody in community is involved, bigger companies and the councilwoman and other people, they start to listen, so that's what we're doing.
