The above property was reported to Community Development 15+ YEARS ago!

NOBODY CARES:

The NE corner of E. Main & Hartwell continues to be an embarrassment as an entryway to downtown. go see for yourself :o

The 1000 block of Whiterock apparently is exempt from code enforcement?

...Likewise the SE corner of W. St Paul and Prairie Ave :o

Not to mention this view from City Hall>

For what it's worth, these have been reported REPEATEDLY over the past 10 - 12 YEARS!!!

Apparently the Dept of Community Development has other priorities

Something needs to change!

That building definitely has some issues -- it's not historic in any nature is it? I know just down the street, the buildings are historic so I am just curious and would love for them to save anything from the interior that is worthy before razing it!

================================


The Jan 1, 2017 fire at Fracaro's Lanes was unfortunate.

I wonder how long before action is taken to begin renovation or to clean up the site?

About four houses north of the speedway on Delafield Street, there is a ridiculous amount of possessions thrown out of the house. Clothing, furniture, not even bagged up. And a cone in the road to tell people not to park where the stuff has gone into the road. I'm not sure what the situation is but come on, this is just piggish.

Some people will say anything to push their agenda!

During the City Administrator's Baseball proposal to the Common Council, he declared Wolf Fuels, "the gas station on Whiterock" as an "eyesore".

Wolf Fuels is a successful business ( since 1941 ), well managed, clean & well maintained.

Perhaps the City Administrator should tour the city if he wants to see blight!

or...maybe he should simply look out his window at City Hall!
