City of Tallahassee crews will start work on cleaning up the streets of Griffin Heights and the Greater Frenchtown neighborhoods as part of the city’s Public Safety Initiative designed to address public safety by focusing on crime prevention, education, and community beautification. Cynthia Barber is the Assistant City Manager for Community Engagement and Public Safety.

“We stand down and we support the neighborhood, but really, if this is to work, we need the people who live in the neighborhoods to take ownership of the programs and initiatives, and then tell us when and how we can assist you with that,” Barber says.

Crews will repair sidewalks and streetlights, and clean up illegal dumpsites.
