I lived here back in the 70s and was really happy. There were lots of jobs, restaurants,stores and no rotten, falling down houses and piles of junk and garbage around the city. So I moved back a few months ago thinking it was the same and am truly suprised and appalled.
The BEST place I've found around IS the Bella Vista.
WHY would anyone want to invest the kind of money it takes to have and run a decent restaurant in an area like this? People don't want to travel to a place that doesn't take care of it's streets and make landlords take care of the houses up to codes. No one wants to come into this city and see delapitated, falling down houses and piles of debris left around. You are absolutely right Jean! The people in this community NEED to DESPERATELY ask themselves WHY everyone keeps leaving and do everything they possibly can to stop it from happening.
After reading various comments posted on here by you, all I can say is: Jean Linen for Mayor!
AND You have definitely got my vote!
If I can last long enough and don't move out of Little Falls that is...
Now I am assuming by your name that you are a woman. Since I do not know you personally I cannot be sure...BUT my parents have lived here their entire lives and I know it to be true that
the men have been in control long enough and haven't been able to "fix" Little Falls but have ONLY made things worse! It is time for the women to take over and show THEM how it's done! How about a woman mayor, police chief, fire chief, town supervisor, entire city board?
You "moved back here" and THEN found out that the place wasn't like it was in the 70s. We're supposed to believe that you just up and moved here, maybe rented an apartment or bought a house, without examining the state of the City?
