A community open house for the West Side of Charleston is scheduled to take place Thursday.
Residents, business owners and employees of the capital city's West Side are invited to come to Emmanuel Baptist Church on Washington Street West between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m., Thursday, according to a news release from the Charleston Police Department.
The release said the open house is part of the Drug Market Intervention "Second Chance" project that will empower area residents to take back their neighborhood, end the (drug) market and improve their quality of life. The goal is "to prosecute and remove violent drug offenders off the street, while giving non-violent offenders a second chance," the release said.
Those who attend the open house also will be given the opportunity to take an anonymous survey regarding various aspects of the West Side, to learn more about social services and provide feedback about the future of their neighborhood.
