It's time to move on everyone. Many have already left. Keep moving further south and escape from those who destroy everything and anything they touch. This is nothing new, think about it...Country Club Hills, Markham, Harvey...it's all over. You can not save this town. No-one is going to invest here for the obvious reasons...Facts hurt, I know this is hard for some of you, but, this is not the town you grew up in. Comments?

What is wrong with you people? I'm not ready to give up either. It's time to breathe new life into this town. After 50 something years of the same administration it's about damn time we all have some hope. Leave if you want to but I will be right here when things get better, proud to have stood by my hometown!
Good Luck

You are going to need a lot of luck. Look around Midlothian looks no where near what it did 20 years ago.

Nothing looks the same as 20 years ago - it all depends on us and how the stores keep their property

I be standing right there with you.For those "doomsdayers" who keep criticizing how bad Midlo is and where we are going, Buh Bye!! See ys, don't let the door hit ya.Go buy in an "exclusive" area where you have a big house, no furniture because of high house payments, triple taxes and water that smells. BUT, you'll be out of Midlo. Nothing is like it was 20 years ago or even 10 years ago.

I am surely not giving up. I am a glass half full kind of person. But things have been going in the wrong direction. A lot of factors have led to this the big one the seemingly endless recession.

But seems we are way lagging in the recovery. Others towns are recovering way sooner. Why I am not sure. I go to a lot of the meetings and all I seem to hear is maybe this and maybe that. Now they are doing the TIF all over. So it just seems the glass is now only a 1/4 full.

So lets be hopeful.

No that is a socialist idea the "we" need to take care of other people business & property...It's called pro-active buidling inspectors & village employees who really work...They need to really enforcing building codes much better, also the town needs a 21st pro-active chamber of commerce & some more funds for the horribly rated schools...it's a pity there are funds for this region for start up business the loans are out there for this zip code...

I'm fighter not a runner, I teach my children to NEVER give up, and fight for what's right. I may not like everything that goes on around here, but I also see a lot of wonderful things. I love my kids school, I love my parish, I love my neighbors, our baseball program, our parks. I love my kids diverse group of friends, my home. Life is what you make it.

Midlo is a dump good idea getting out of there. If you live next to Robbins, Posen, and Blue Island you have to expect living with animals.
