Alderman Lionel Jean-Baptiste is especially encouraging residents of the ward between Asbury and Dodge avenues to attend the session at the Robert Crown Center.

Neighbors around the intersection of Florence Avenue and Crain Street and on Dewey and Darrow avenues have noted burglary problems in recent weeks.

The meeting will be held at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 20, at the Crown Center, 1701 Main St.
