What would change it though??? I often wonder that. I think it needs to start with the police. I am curious why the police don't just clean house??Donora and monessen are pieces of crap towns that are sores on the backs of the monvalley!
Step two, I think, should start with a community clean up. Get rid of the trash, the slum buildings, etc....
Once it is safer and cleaner, maybe the nicer people will begin to out number the trashy people and then a few businesses may even be interested in moving into the town.
Actually, Donora has quite a few industrial businesses. It would be nice if the town was nicer so these employees might patron some restaurants and convenience stores and grocery stores during their lunch hours or on their way home without their being safety issues.
I think both of these communities were once good communities... they just need zero tolerance for anything less than what they want it to be and it will become that. They being the police and the members of the community. Just my opinion.
