As of this afternoon, the lot is still overgrown with high grass and high weeds.

I plan to attend the festival on Shady Run Road today.  I'll let you know the condition of this lot.

FROM THE 7WCC FACEBOOK PAGE ---

John R SwierzThat was the 1st lot beautification project in the 7th Ward. The 7WCC , Neighbors and members of the Lansingville block watch did the job. As President of 7WCC I will try to start looking at dates. If you are willing to volunteer please IM me or call me 330 503-1363. 20 volunteers can make it happen.

Thomas Forestal I had taken care of this lot for a few years without any help from the neighborhood. I had even been approached by some of these neighbors saying I was wasting my time because nobody wanted this little park. When I received some funds from the 7WCC I planted new flower beds, but only have them destroyed by the students at St. Matthias charter school. Unfortunately there are some areas of the 7th Ward who do not want to have any beautification of their neighborhoods.

Paul Drennen The one complaining only complains and was the downfall of the WSCC

Years ago there used to be av house on this property.  I'm pretty sure former councilman John Swierz was involved with landscaping this lot after the house was removed.

This corner lot has several man made items place on it.  These include a bench, a sign and an ornamental fence.  These items have to be removed so that the city mowing tractors can mow the high grass and weeds.

I believe this lot is in the seventh ward and should be of concern to the current council member.

That was not a park. A neighborhood group did some plantings and spruced it up, but the neighbors said they didn't want it and after someone ruined it, the Neighborhood group said that they will not do anything more there. If the neighbors don't want that patch of land spruced up, why should our neighborhood groups waste our resources there?

Within the last half hour, I passed this corner lot/park and it still has not been cut.

If people want to spruce up the south side, they should start with this lot.

Shabby Looking South Side Park

A few years ago, a group planted flowers and perennials on the vacant lot at the corner of Shady Run Road and Cornell.  I passed this corner yesterday and noticed that the corner park is now overgrown with high grass and weeds.
