Diggs Johnson Middle School Students to Help Improve Park!

On Wednesday May 13, 2009 from 8:30AM to 10:45AM students from the seventh grade class of Ms. Smith and Mr. Locke at Diggs Johnson Middle School will be participating in a service project at Carroll Skate Park at Carroll Park.

The students have decided to paint the skate park as part of a special class they are in called Operation AWARE. Operation AWARE is run through Students Sharing Coalition, a nonprofit that provides service-learning and civic engagement experiences to students from diverse backgrounds, who take responsibility for their communities and are committed to social justice.

Please come out to support the students.

Update on Traffic Light

The entrance/exit to Carroll Park has been identified as a concern by many of our park users. Currently, the entrance/exit on Washington Boulevard is not served by a traffic signal. It is very difficult to safely enter and exit our park by car.

Please contact our Pigtown/Carroll Park council members to have them see the problem firsthand. Afternoons/evenings and weekends are good times to show just how dangerous this situation can become.

District 10: William Cole
