MEMPHIS, TN -
(WMC-TV) - Jerica Phillips recently returned to the Northaven where she grew up and spoke to leaders about the neighborhood's future.
After her story aired, Action News 5 was flooded with calls and emails from people who want to help revive the community that they love.
A once vibrant suburb just south of Millington and north of Memphis, Northaven has seen better days.
But many people said they want to help after seeing who saw how county officials and current residents are working toward reviving the community.
"Saving the Haven" is an effort to take back the neighborhood.
Viewers, who remember when the area thrived, have asked how they can be a part of its renaissance. A state of the art fire station and a community center have opened in the neighborhood over the past year.
Residents are working with members of the Blight Patrol, Northaven Elementary Principal Louis Padgett and Impact Baptist Church in order to weed out crime and blight.
And Shelby County Mayor Mark Luttrell says he welcomes the community's input.
"We are trying to focus on the causal effects of the blight issues and crime issues out here and try to have an impact beyond public safety and focus on environmental issues, livability, quality of life," he said.
If you're interested in being part of the area's revitalization, you can attend two monthly meetings.
County officials say meet with residents twice a month at Northaven Elementary School's library.
They hold a general meeting on the first Tuesday of every month and then on the second Tuesday of the month, they meet with agencies for progress reports.
