A community group is working to revitalize one area of Wilmington.

Sarah Lester oversees West Side Grows Together.

"We are a coalition of approximately 25 community organizations, leaders, business owners, church leaders, residents, so we're all working together to improve the quality of life on Wilmington's West Side," said Lester on WDEL's Del-AWARE.

Lester said they're primarily focused on five areas.

"Economic development, housing development, work in the parks and gardens, we work with youth and connecting youth to resources, and then, of course, community safety," said Lester.

The group put together a game plan nine years ago outlining its goals and how best to achieve them.
