Rochester City Council member Adam C. McFadden is hosting a public forum today to discuss open air drug markets and his proposed legislature for creating drug-free zones.
The event will begin at 6:30 p.m. in council chambers, Room 302A, City Hall, 30 Church St.
McFadden chairs the City Council’s Public Safety, Youth and Recreation Committee. The public forum is for residents to talk about their experiences, frustrations and fears concerning open air drug markets in their neighborhoods; and provide input on McFadden’s proposed legislation.
“I’ve been pushing for real enforcement on open air drug markets since I came into office a decade ago,” McFadden said. “The sad truth is that when drug dealers move into a neighborhood they make it unlivable for all the ordinary people who live there. The whole business of drug dealing destroys housing markets and makes honest, taxpaying citizens feel like hostages in their own homes.”
