FIROZ VOHRA started this petition to Mayor City of Harvey Mayor Christopher Clark of Harvey and

Harvey has been rated as the number one, most dangerous city in the Chicago, Illinois area. With close to 26,000 people living in the city, it is only the 89th largest community. This is a very low, educated, and low income city, with a high crime rate. The city is predominantly African American, with a good number of Hispanics as well as other ethnicities. The number of violent crimes reported in recent statistics, combined with property crimes were some of the highest in all of the state. Crimes have always been an issue for the city and have increased over recent years.

Historically Harvey crime has been due to rental properties and gang violence. Harvey Downtown has been plagued by shootings, murders and gang violence. Last 30 years the crime in Harvey especially Donwtown Harvey has been very high. Mayor Clark of Harvey want to put 5 story 56 unit public housing project in downtown Harvey. It is low income housing subsidized by State of Illinois. We the concerned citizens of Harvey do not want this project. Mayor Clark had refused to do a public hearing and we the citizens of Harvey humbly request Mayor to fix street, street lights,alleys and fight the crime and hire more police.
