The city said drug dealers and prostitutes often hide behind the weeds when making illegal transactions."If we leave litter on the ground, if we leave windows broken, if we don't make the things beautiful, if we don't invest in the community, then the community is going to treat it like we're treating it like it's a second class area,” Warrick said.Some life-long eastside residents fear what will happen when the event is over and the crowd disappears."If this is just to have a like little picnic on the eastside and make the people think we're really going to do something, then you're just wasting taxpayers' time, but if this is the beginning of how business is going to be done in the future, then I applaud that,” Rev. Ruth Martin said.Warrick said they plan to have more cleanup events in the future.
