Glad to see ourSoutheast is less violent than your side of town, and I spent so much less mon3y than you did for my home, it’s beautiful.
The heck with getting a northwest outlet mall, Chamber of Commerce.
If you Movers and Shakers really want to help the northwestern part of the City of Tallahassee and Leon County take a good, hard look at that quadrant! It is deteriorating at a rapid clip.
When we moved here in 1973 the northwest was a wonderful place for families…good schools, great middle-class neighborhoods, fine eateries, nice motels, two vibrant malls with great shops.
And now? Fading schools, declining neighborhoods, broken/closed malls, mostly fast food, adults “toy” stores, pawn shops, no-tel motels worthy of human trafficking pimps, and a burgeoning population of homeless, many with mental issues. Rick K. gets kudos for dealing with the latter but notice this: His largess isn’t on daily display in Killearn or Southwood or Midtown or Eastside. It is in the West and Northwest.
So—Mr. and Ms. CofC—what did you say about this issue in discussions at your junket in Amelia Island? Just asking…..
