Concern for the citizens of the South Park community and neighboring areas led to the creation of the Greater South Park Neighborhoods Partnership earlier this year.

The group, which meets monthly on the Lamar University campus, has begun to address issues facing the community, according to Norman Bellard, assistant to the president for community relations at Lamar University and chair of the partnership.
