The Cooper-Young Community Association is embarking on a Safety Initiative for our community. This initiative will cover many aspects of safety that affect our residents, business owners, and daily visitors. One aspect of our Safety Initiative will be to address the issue of panhandling in our business district. We plan to begin this process through collaboration with the Center City Commission which serves downtown Memphis. The CCC has implemented a successful program in the downtown area that they hope will become a citywide initiative. We hope this program, "No to Panhandling", will be just as effective in Cooper-Young.
