Your 1930s built Belleville home is worth $70,000.00, why sink $20,000.00 into it when the area is going down hill?

I gotta agree with you. I don't think that it would be the best investment.

Housing is certainly very affordable in the Belleville area. Many rather nice well constructed older homes I'd say. What keeps their prices down is demand, the crime rate, and the number of vacancies.

Tackle the bad crime rate and clean out the trouble makers, much of Belleville's current negative trends can reverse. People have got to join forces for a common cause. Nothing will improve with the leadership in office around here. Too many really do not care. Just in it for the power and attention. Narcissist are they? Yeppers.

Waiting for the storms tonight.

You hit the nail on the head. Most people don't want to move from Belleville, but without effective leadership, I don't know if things can be turned around.

I hear from friends on the west end of Belleville that East St. Louis people have pretty much taken over. We offer so much to ESTL, public aid, public transportation, better schools, stores, they can walk to a variety of stores, etc.
You are correct!

They are like kids in a candy store!!!
