HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM)
The 40th Avenue Kensington Woods Neighborhood Association just launched a "Friends of 40th Avenue" campaign to adopt 40th Ave. By adopting 40th Ave., the organization will agree to keep the area clean, safe and beautified.
Van Jones, neighborhood resident and KWNA president, said the city created and erected three signs along 40th Ave. from Mamie to Lincoln Road.
"We are extremely excited about the possibilities of partnering with residents, faith-based organizations, civic organizations and the city of Hattiesburg to help keep clean, maintain and improve 40th Avenue," Jones said. He also said he is challenging everyone in the area to take care of the street.
