We, the members of the Historic
Cannon's Addition Community Development by unanimous action submit the
following documentation and strongly request action: For decades this large
parcel of real estate has been allied to be overgrown with brush and vegetation.
It has become the dumping ground for garbage and all forms of waste. Sidewalks
on 5th Ave., and Walnut Street is so overgrown with brush that in some
places foot traffic is impaired. Because of dense brush and trees it has
also become a habitat for transients that then can pray on our constuents
with pan handling and thievery. Please note the sleeping bag under the
The property badly needs to have scrub trees, brush and foliage removed
to eliminate the transient issue. Garbage and refuse should be removed
and periodic checks maintained to police the area. A cop shop function?
Pictured here are the sidewalks from the corner of Walnut and Freeway
The first picture is North from the alley.
The Second is from the corner looking east.
FYI: Below is a picture of the alley with Mrs. Bronson surveying
tasteless yard maintenance.
To be fair, the place is not without it's beauty.
This action to clean this area up and
maintain it in a clean state is essential.
It is one of the first sites that meet the eyes of people
coming off the freeway and viewing the city for the first time.
