The City is Making Progress

This Article in todays' Express Times is a follow up on what properties the City is making progress with. I won't bother with the Armory (I'll believe it when I see it) but 51 S. Warren I would love to see fixed up.
This picture I took of the property in August 2010 when I first blogged about it. It looks the same now. The report points out one BIG problem in Easton: out of town landlords! Faceless companies don't care about neighborhoods, and unless the City goes after them, they can't be bothered to move on these things.

Mayor Panto is Paying Attention

Here's an article about how vacant properties are being targeted by the city.

There are a few properties on this list that I have posted about here before. Coincidence? Maybe so; it doesn't take a rocket surgeon to see ugly. But I must commend Mayor Panto for taking this issue seriously. getting rid of blighted properties is in everyone's best interests so I hope they can make some progress on this.
I wouldn't mind if he maybe posted here and thanked me :)
