I just received this comment on facebook (www.imonfacebook.com) from Fox 8 reporter Chad Tucker. I must admit that I was rather excited that he took this shot, simply because I’ve never taken a photo of the sign.
When I adopted this portion of Lee St. (about a year ago) there were a bunch of old run down buildings down towards the Eugene St end, but they have sense been torn down and redevelopment plans are in the works. The stretch of Lee that I adopted extends from Eugene up to Bennett, some of which is still questionable and what the police categorize as “gang territory.”
The Adopt-A-Street program is fantastic if you ask me, and I would encourage others to take part because a little effort can go a really long way. If interested, you can get further details here.
