ELKHART A neighborhood in Elkhart is getting extra attention from the city council.

The Roosevelt Park neighborhood has been so riddled with violence, many parents aren't even willing to take their children to the park.

The Elkhart Truth reports that the topic came up during a council meeting, and members discussed everything from increasing the police presence, to adding lights in the area.

They have no intention of closing the park.
