Look over on the east side their is one house that is pitiful why don't the city step up and do their job. Old wreck cars in the yard. Corbin city leaders need to. Step up and take charge. Down town needs some revitalization desperately.,a few coffee shops is not going to do the trick. I honk the mayor has done a pretty good job, but cleaning up some of the older parts of corbin he needs to take charge and put his builder inspector to work.

Email the code enforcement officer about that house on the East side and give him all the details. Anything like that is a code enforcement violation and has to be reported to him not just the city. I reported the photography/garage on the corner of Gordon and Main for having junk cars and they got rid of them the next week.

The main street manager should get to work! Our downtown looks like a dump compared to london's downtown. Their downtown is classy and beautiful. Ours is an eye sore! If the main street manager would quit pushing his coffee shop for a day maybe he could spare a little time to start working on making our downtown look a little better. Mrs. Meyers did nothing and I had high hopes for this guy but then he let us down too. Although he's a huge step up from Mrs. Meyers, i'll give him that much, but I feel that his position is a huge waste of tax paying dollars since it appears his only efforts have involved him and his coffee shop.

Downtown Corbin is a lost cause. It will never be a booming business area like it was in the past again. The bigger stores in the outlying areas such as Walmart, Belks, Penney etc have all the business and there are other choices for dining that have hours more accomodating to the working crowd. They could put an endless amount of money into the downtown area but the fact is, it's dead and gone, outlived it's usefulness.

Many cities have revitalized their downtown areas, but it's a group effort. The business owners must work with the city to coordinate the revitalization .

comparing Corbin to London is REALLY not fair to Corbin. London is the county seat and as a result, has an influx of people there for the day to utilized the court system. Their main street is wider which allows convenience for traffic to maneuver more easily. Small down towns are never going to bounce back. Just give up....(a moment of silence for the dead down town), the big box stores are here to stay. and by the way, why does "Deals on Wheels" get to keep all those junk cars in front of their store? That place is an eyesore...clean it up already.

Corbin needs some enforcement by mr Burke on junk cars sitting in drive ways. Fellow told me mr Burke told him to turn it around we'll the whole front in his torn out ad has no current tag. Mr Burke do your job and enforce the ordinances.they are going to be a group come to city hall and see why these people when the junk house and junk car seem to pay no mind to mr. Burke. Please help the east side.we will have hundreds people of people walking in the area. Dozens of people travel to rotary park. Lets buckle it up and put the lip service behind us and get something done to clean up our small community.!!!!!!!!! We are all adults we should all be treated the same..........
