Lake Ridge residents looking to form association

The Community for a Better Lake Ridge, a coalition of residents representing the Lake Ridge neighborhood in Fort Lauderdale, is filing papers to become an organized association.

The coalition was created roughly four months ago by residents eager to cut down on crime.

Said the group’s founder, Mary Pat Rhodes. “We’re gonna show the bad guys we don’t want [them here] anymore.”

Rhodes put together a series of monthly crime walks, the next of which is scheduled for Sept. 21.
