Councilwoman Natalia Rudiak’s office brings together Office of Community Affairs and Mayor William Peduto, Carrick-Overbrook Block Watch, community leaders, and Directors of each city department to develop a plan to tackle blight and crime hot spots in Carrick.
Beginning Thursday, September 10, 2015 the Carrick Blight and Crime Blitz began targeting 42 problem properties in the neighborhood for an intensive multi-department effort to improve quality of life in the neighborhood. After a month-long process to determine which areas in Carrick had the most unresolved complaints from 311, 911 and community members, the Office of Community Affairs worked with our office to create a new program to address and monitor violations.
The primary objective of this effort is to improve public safety and quality of life in the Carrick community. You can access resources or stay up to date on the project right here.
