A small group gathered over the weekend in the City of Lockport to Walk on Washburn Street.
A group called Save Lockport Housing, led by Michael Manning and former City of Lockport Alderman Jack Smith, held the walk to call attention to several boarded up houses. The once beautiful single-family homes have fallen into disrepair.
Second Ward Alderwoman Anne McCaffrey was the only elected official on hand and she said she's hoping to help turn a negative into a positive.
The group is looking for the City to issue citations and hold owners of homes like these accountable.
