“you know Lily’s cafe and that stretch of block on colorado between Kennedy and Longfellow, which includes colorado kitchen, a (bad) corner store, haircut place, and empty space.

ANYWAY, Lily really did a lot to improve her store and the sidewalk in front of her. she put nice tables w/umbrellas out and huge planters with flowers out.

the other day, i noticed that now, she has even planted flowers etc in the dirt by the curb.

but when you look down the street on either side, tumbleweeds practically roll by–it’s derelict w/weeds etc and cracked sidwalk.

it pisses me off that the other businesses don’t care, i respond by patronizing lily’s but wondered if there is anything else i could do.

as you know, just a few touches like pulling weeds and keeping some plants or flowers, things like that, can transform a block.

thoughts?”

I think you should contact your local ANC rep and see if a clean up/beautification project can be organized. What do you guys think?
