Boundaries & Location
The boundaries of the Washington Street Neighborhood Association are Centennial Avenue on the west, Washington Street on the south, College Avenue on the east and Barbee Street on the north.
In February of 2010, the Police Department conducted a Focused Deterrence Initiative for the Washington Street area, resulting in a much more peaceful, stable neighborhood. The association was actively involved in the initiative, attending the call-in and assisting police with area canvassing/information events since then. Major areas of interest for the association are crime reduction, and access to services, information and capacity-building resources.
