Reducing the Number of Hang out Druggies Have

One of the most impressive things New Westminster is doing to encourage drug addicts to clean up their act is by reducing the number of places drug dealers and kids tend to hang out. The manner that they did this was nothing short of brilliant. They took an area that was formally a notorious hang out and place to score drugs and put the area to constructive use. After spending approximately $250 million dollars on a project that includes the creation of a new shopping center and condos, the city has improved its overall image, provided jobs to the locals, and been commended for its brilliant creating a development that is transit orientated. The thing that locals most like about the new development, which is called Azure Plaza 88, has attracted a completely different type of person to the formally troubled area. Drug addicts and dealers are no longer comfortable hanging out there.
