    who else thanks the wall on crescent drive will completely collapse before it's fixed?

    can only hope no one is hurt when it does.

    It does look dangerous. Is that wall private property?

    You can't fix stupid, but they are useful tools. Convince them you value their ideas and they will hate whoever you say.

    Uniqueness is hard to fine. A treasure by some measure like Time Square(not square) in New York City.

    But the egresses (?) belongs to the city or Elssy.

    Holey parking lot for sure does belong the Cross. it just seems so righteous
    No disrespect meant to any mentioned.

    Of course it does, I was just wondering why there has been no action taken on it yet and thought there may be some question about whose responsibility it is. Whoever... it needs gittin' after.

    No doubt it's going to take a lot of money to fix that and still stay on the good side of the HDC.

    Concert retaining wall would be the best way to go, but resurfacing with limestone blocks would be silly expensive.

    When the private hillside landed on Grand the City, helped by Perky's advice footed the bill, including re-doing the entire hillside complete with seeding, grading and blocks. As Shuggie said it all depends on the owner.

    Flashback to the old woman of modest means who had the City back flush the sewer system into her house. It was months of filth and misery and her bill.

    One good frog strangler of a rain, and that whole side is going. Hopefully, not the houses at the top. Sinkhole first, then....well? We'll see.
