Many of the 215 neighborhood block clubs and crime watches throughout Flint are banding together to form a louder voice in community discussions.

Neighborhood block clubs and crime watches across the city have begun banding together to form a megaclub that would give citizens a louder voice in community discussions.

"It's a huge umbrella. We haven't seen much of that," said Earnestine Towns, 71, president of the Bonner Park block club.

Tuesday morning meetings of block club and crime-watch leaders have grown from a handful of folks last year to more than 50 people from throughout the city - roughly a quarter of the 200 block clubs and 15 crime watches currently operating in Flint, said acting Flint police Chief Gary Hagler.
