lockawayDistrict six Councilor Sheila Tyson says Lockway Gardens is a blight on Birmingham’s  west side.  She is asking for funding by the city council to have it demolished.  Councilor Tyson says residents started abandoning Lockway Gardens in 2008 before it was officially closed down the next year. Neighbors say this massive complex is unsettling with more than two dozen buildings sit empty.  The buildings have been gutted and many buildings are occupied by homeless residents or drug dealers.
