"It's really been gratifying to see the neighborhood come together as a neighborhood," pastor of New Zion Baptist Church K. Edward Copeland said. "And everybody acknowledging the fact that we all want to live in a safe, beautiful community."
The celebration was held outside the New Zion Baptist Church -- recognizing all those involved in the project.
