Eckington is a beautiful neighborhood, but as I've gone out in the neighborhood and spoken to residents, many people cite beautification, rodents, and Harry Thomas Recreation Center as major opportunities for improvement in Eckington. As Commissioner, I will:
- Revitalize Harry Thomas Recreation Center by refreshing its interior and exterior, bringing more classes to the facility, and working with the city to add other amenities to improve its usability and accessibility.
- Re-establish neighborhood beautification days where residents pitch in to clean up.
- Identify areas where residents want new trash cans and work with the city to get them installed.
- Seek out new, innovative solutions to our rodent problems, by working with the city and looking at what other cities have done when it comes to rodent abatement.
