Good luck with that! I think it's great they want to clean up the area. However, it will not clean up the crime in that area committed by thugs. They don't care if you clean up the area or not. If they want drugs and gunfire, they will continue to do it. Be truthful, even though they cleaned up the area, would you move there?
please

clean up the drugs and then someone might move here, the south end is the pits, parsons has been a hot bed for drugs and prostitution for decades, thats the only reason any one goes down parsons

Parsons Ave. has been the pig sty of Columbus for way to long to think that you can revitalize it without a bulldozer. Sorry grew up there it SUCKS!!!

True that there are a few areas that are a hot mess but by cleaning up Parsons is a step in the right direction.

Transformation will take baby steps, and cleaning up Parsons is the first step, and it sends a very clear message that poor behavior will not be tolerated and there is now a GREATER FOCUS on Parsons and other neighorhoods on the Southside. Take my word for it, they are being watched!

We take Pride in where we live and Parsons Avenue is not the ghetto as everyone seems to think it is. We work very hard all year long to maintain a safe, clean neighborhood for our residents and visitors...Pride on Parsons is a great step to add to what we are already doing! Thanks everyone for all the great, hard work that was put forth today!

You are very wrong...we have a lot of NEW businesses coming to Parsons...The negativity that you put out here is the problem...not the solution...get a clue!

Why sre you so negative? You must be one of the dealers or prostitutes that we are trying to run out of here...Get a life...If you don't like the South Side then don't come down here only to complain...We live here and we love it!

Just getting people to pay attention is something. The only way my neighbors would pay attention to their community is if you put it on television.
I would do that if we had Public Access.

hey stephanie, good luck, you just dont want the truth, go to autozone and watch the hood rats creep out of the cracks to see if they can roll you, business can come but will customers come when this happens everytime they want to get something from one of those business.payday loans and thrift store arent needed nor used junk furnituer,get things people really need and get serious by busting the balls on the punk #ss hood rats.only then when theyre ran out will things get better.

I think this is great! If you keep up with the area businesses will continue to open and people will move in. German Village is just a few blocks west. Great job today everyone! Columbus inner city is making a comeback!!

Good job to all involved in the clean up of the area! It is a positive step in the right direction,More events like this needed to get members of the area to work at reclaiming their community and driving the Drugs,Thugs and Whores who drive out the good people away.It is a good way to get the people to comunicate and act as a community.If they just give up who wins?The area has alot of potential if the people who live in the area band together and do positive things toward a common goal to create a good and vital neighborhood as it was in the past.Good start,keep it going!!
