Through the regular publication of a community newspaper called Around the Block, they are sharing important stories and community information. [...] Around the Block was launched in October 2008 and funded by Vibrant Communities Saint John (VCSJ) and the City of Saint John. [...] Around the Block coordinator Juanita Black is a resident of Crescent Valley, one of the five priority neighbourhoods. [...] Says Juanita: “I was both nervous and eager to take on the paper’s coordinator role, and it’s given me the chance to grow personally and professionally. [...] The five priority neighbourhoods each have two representatives that make up an operating committee; a total of 15 to 20 people vet the information that is released to the wider community.
