When historic areas are affected, the APL provides support and feedback to elected officials about the impact on preservation and the core of Abilene.

Advocacy for Abilene Neighborhoods.  APL board member Carrie Blaschke was able to be instrumental in cleaning up Original Town West.   Town West Neighborhood Association is registered with the city.  The group met at Ms. Baschke's home to organize a neighborhood clean up with city officials.  The clean up started soon after the meeting.  The Association now contacts the city when special events are going on  in the area.  The pictures are of a gathering of the association and working with the city in cleaning up their surroundings.
