'Year of the Boulevard' held in Atlanta's Fourth Ward

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA -

Atlanta City Councilmember Kwanza Hall sponsored the annual "Year of the Boulevard" in the city's Old Fourth Ward on Thursday.

Hall sponsors the yearly event to celebrate achievements in a community with lots of challenges and to look ahead.

A full house came together for the progress report at Tabernacle Baptist Church.

Community leaders say they've made headway despite families there living in a high concentration of poverty.

Program leaders say a new APD precinct at Atlanta Medical Center, summer school programs and other initiatives have helped reduce crime there by more than 14 percent.
