Also for the blog format, I would put a few more words and less pictures. Haha who am I criticize, just throwing in my two cents.

RP needs a place for people to discuss neigborhood issues is all.

Hi Bill,
Thanks for posting the pictures of the empty lot at Ashland and Howard, across from the Willye White Park and Recreation Center. I have meant to do the same thing. It's looked like this for several months now and exemplifies how the Alderman has apparently 'written off' our section of the Ward when it comes to holding property owners accountable. If there were an ongoing concern and accountability it wouldn't be necessary to publicize these kinds of conditions because they wouldn't be allowed to exist.

Well we have a similar problem down in my neck of the woods at the former synagogue site at 1239 w pratt.

I picked up all the trash and have kept it trash free. Next step is to cut up the branches and bramble and haul it away.

This holy mess at Howard and Ashland looks more intimidating.
The Fence is all over the place and the lot is not on an even grade and its a muddy mucking mess.

I would put this at the top of the aldermans to do list.
