To efforts to raise public and communal perception of Hollingsworth Manor. The neighborhood has long carried the stigma of being a dangerous place with a history of gun violence and systematic drug deals and overdoses. But the recent formation of the Hollingsworth Manor Revitalization Advisory Committee (HMRAC) offers a glimmer of hope that the issues in that community could change. There have been two HMRAC meetings organized by county service providers so far, with more monthly meetings to follow. Sheilagh Weinert, a decade-long resident of the Manor and the de-facto leader of the neighborhood for these meetings for now, has been working with her fellow community members to gather feedback from neighbors and spark positive change in Hollingsworth Manor. Weinert acknowledged that the action has been slow to start, but she is hopeful that the effort will build momentum as more people join the cause. Chief among HMRAC’s goals is holding landlords more accountable to better screen potential renters in order to ward off crime from the area. Manor residents are also looking to launch a “curb appeal” program, where residents would be asked to make their front step a little nicer, and to host more community events to foster unity among neighbors. We share Weinert’s hope for a new dawn for Hollingsworth Manor when families and children can feel safe playing in front of their homes.
