Jackson thinks urban sprawl is Cleveland's problem. The problems go much deeper than that. I live in the suburbs and if I had the choice between moving downtown of moving away then I would leave the area all together. That's not Avon's fault and stealing a few $ from Avon won't do anything to help the city of Cleveland.
