Driving down Liberty Street looking down some of these side streets. One sticks out the most. Sycamore Street. The end connected to Liberty. Its heart breaking to see how some people live and I can't help but wonder.... why hasn't anyone stepped in on these propertys and make them clean up their areas? I know if I did that I'd have to clean my property. What makes them so different? Night after night the scanner goes crazy. 90% of the time it is going to sycamore street. Massena is going down hill people. If you want your town to continue to go down hill please just continue sitting back and doing nothing. Or you could make your voice heard. Go to the Massena Board Meetings and voice your opinion on this area as well as others. Lets clean up Massena.

The code enforcement officer needs to be replaced yesterday. You can drive down any street and start filling up a notebook with violations. And it should be done so what's left of the town doesn't continue falling in on itself. People are inherently lazy and without someone to crack the whip on them you see what happens to towns. Get a new code enforcement officer with some nuts.

I wholeheartedly agree! It seems the same few people are at these meetings, and the rest just want to complain and do nothing about it. Businesses are closing ( KFC, Clopmans, etc...) homes are falling into disrepair. Massena is in dire straits. Our code enforcer should be employed elsewhere. Well said VOICE!

Read in the paper today that some brain surgeon seems to think we need even more low income housing...funded by the tax payers! Just what Massena needs...more reasons for St Lawrence County services to relocate the poor of our county to Massena. That way the taxes will keep going up and we will have less taxpayers to contribute. Awesome idea to boost Massena T Fregoe!!! You should run for office! NOT

i believe the code officer is being informed. i think he is trying to be patient and give people time to make amends. in most cases it just isn't working. perhaps we could nudge him to be a little more strict and and a whole lot less flexible.

to be honest - i am almost afraid to walk through that area of sycamore (and woodlawn) and that includes in daylight. if there is one area of town that needs incessant patrolling that would be it. even driving down the street - young people are walking in front of you and badmouthing you. it is darn near like a ghetto over there.

Put up some visible cameras around the neighborhood and like cockroaches to daylight, they'll scatter away.

I was born and raised in Massena but have been gone for over 14 years. This past summer I came up for a brief visit. The last time I was there was 6 years ago. It broke my heart. From Ogdensburg all the way to Massena, the beautiful riverside homes that I adored looking at as a child are now run down and dilapitated. Then when I got to Massena, it looked even worse. It's like people have just given up and don't care anymore. It's a beautiful town. I wish the residence there would take more pride in their town. It's just so sad to see how far downhill it has gone in the last 6 years even.

The last week on Sycamore has been busy. Don't know if it's the landlord behind it but the porches are torn off the buildings and looks like work being done. The people are now sitting on their couches and such in the lawns near the sidewalks while the kids play in the mud and garbage. Doze the whole buildings down!!!!

Forget that. If you erect a bird feeder over there, the Juggalos will begin feeding from it and the birds will starve.
