Yeah right.

Problem is there are people [ homeowners] that live right next door which is about 7 feet away, cause the houses are packed like sardines.

They cannot afford to move either.

What needs to happen is demolition to these houses that are blighted/burned/empty for years.

We have wasted millions for "studies", but when the question of why can't we address blight with demolition like Big Detroit did, the answer is always "no money".[ I know, I asked this question multiple times]

What liars.

OH, I just remembered.

Cleveland also implemented the tear down of blighted properties.

What is Erie waiting for?
