sinister they have already chased those people out of those houses. if you burn them down you burn down houses that have been there for 100+ years. just give them a full remodel with the historical aspects in mind and then sell them to people that have had a through back ground check and sign waivers that they will not deface the house (makeing the historical apeal into a modern look). lets just let them take care of springfield an dleave a few of the houses in full historic apeal and looks so that people can tour them to make money to help bring back the former beauty of that part of town. and one other thing PUT THE CHICKENS BACK IN THE HISTORIC PARK!!!! wel all miss the lil roosters and hens that would actually become friendly towards the regulars and actually were there long before the rest of jacksonville was buil taround that part of town!

I am truly surprised that the affluent blacks in Jacksonville did not choose to buy and restore these lovely old homes in Springfield. I suppose it could be they want no part of the ghetto creatures nearby - or want to put up with the Uncle Tom taunts from da bruthas.

yes and downtown is so delapuidated that it will take a huge miricale and some elbo grease to restore it. the shanty houses need new paint and some of the burned out buildingd are tear downs and then a building that is of historic value put back up in thei rplaces...not to mention all the rotted wood in those houses and the bricks coming off of the un use dbuildings!! that and the hotel that you can actually see inside cause some of the walls to the outside are missing is an eye soar! it will take more than affluent blacks to take it back to its former beauty! and the cops need to step up and get the rest of the rifraf out so its livable there again! they keep takeing things ou tof there that need to stay and im sick o fit. some of those buildings can be restored an dused as schools and low cost houseing for those that are goo dpeople but just need a leg up in life! restore the buildings and make afew of historic looks right down to the people paid to act as the people lived back in the day. restore the business buildingd and create jobs for those that need them as well! i could scream at the gov for takeing so much taxes from the downtrodden while they loose their homes and jobs because they cant afford to pay for rent electric AND the taxes taken out of their checks!
