Cheers and jeers

CHEERS - To the Gloversville Neighborhood Improvement Corp. The nonprofit group was founded about a year and a half ago with the intention of helping people live in safe, affordable housing. Last month, the Fulton County Board of Supervisors gave the group five vacant Gloversville properties, which the group plans to turn into "land banks." The corporation will grate and seed the lots, establish grassy areas, install fences and plant evergreen trees. The corporation also will try to work with neighbors to develop the land. The corporation previously turned a piece of land off Fremont Street into a community garden, and currently, the corporation is partnering with the Gloversville Public Library and the Micropolis Gallery in Gloversville to provide a four-week art and garden program for local youths. The group's efforts are making a positive difference in the community.
