On Wednesday night, residents will meet with police, city officials and representatives from community outreach programs at an open house.

“Everybody’s fiercely loyal to the community,” says Sean Rollins, a longtime Bowness resident. “Once people get tired of it, we get together and it’s got to change. We can’t wait for somebody else to do it.”

The open house starts at 7 p.m. at the Bowness Community Centre.
