SOUTH HAVEN — Ten years ago, a group of residents who live on the south side of South Haven decided to form a group to improve their neighborhood.

Since that time, The Ward 1 Community Action Committee, named for the South Haven ward in which it is located, has embarked on a variety of projects that have not only helped the neighborhood, but the greater South Haven area, as well.
