I think that the local government needs to set regulations on how long your grass can be, when it's time to revamp your house's facade (like if the paint is coming off really bad or your siding is from 1970). This would make the town more appealing to outsiders thus having a good impression on the town. If the homeowners can't pay for it, the government could pay and possibly just add the bill back on the taxes?? Also, we should do like what Watseka does and have flowers, plants, etc. up town, especially in front of vacant buildings which could always be redone...

Kid,

They do have regulations on how long the grass can be. You'd be surprised but they are kind of actually on top of that. The inspector drives around and immediately sends out a letter but for the vacant houses and places where they have no idea who owns them or where they are (there are many) they kind of are s.o.l. because they dont have anyone to really handle it beyond that point.

I LOVE your ideas! But...welcome to hoopeston!

-Where once your commercial building has fallen down into its alley, they send you a letter.
-Where street safety signs are hung upside down
-Where 25% of the city council on average are absent from city council meetings
-Where just a couple or so years ago when a black man moved to town, crosses were burned on his lawn
THERE ARE HOUSES IN HOOPESTON WITH PEOPLE LIVING IN THEM WITHOUT RUNNING WATER! WITH DIRT FLOORS!

But good luck!

Why throw money away on flowers and shit when the punk ass kids and lowlife adults will just trash them!
