At some point, the businesses in town who can afford to invest in their future must come forward. If only they would consider improving the front of their buildings (landscaping/signage), drive by appeal, we'd be heading in the right direction.

They could take a lesson from Pearsons Seafood/Mini Storage. They have done a fabulous job with their storefront, especially adding to the fishing/seafood theme which is in character to the town! Terrific what a few pictures, and a splash of paint can do. It has really added some color to Colonial Avenue. Thanks Pearson family.

A few years ago, Pearson added fencing to conform with the town regulation that requires concealing vehicles,etc.from public view. This too was a welcomed improvement. Now, it they would finish the job so that those living on or driving past their border at Livingston would have a barrier from the unattractive industrial view; another eye sore that lowers folks' property value. This would be another step forward.
