a couple of years ago (maybe more recent) one of the corners at Monroe St & Auburn was cleaned up and turned into a green space. Some bushes were planted and a sign was erected stating who was involved in the clean up. Google maps still has the sign present from before the work was actually done.
It looked nice, clean and in general much better off than it was with all of the trash etc that was there before.
Now, it's in a state of seemingly complete abandonment. The sign is gone, and the low lying bushes are completely filled with trash. It seems to get worse every time we drive by.
I'm curious if anyone knows who was involved with the initiative to clean it up in the first place... and also if there are any plans for maintenance. While that particular intersection may be considered rough by some, it also is the home to a carry out, a dry cleaner and a very busy gas station.
Living in the old west end, I realize that most neighborhoods are not as organized as ours. If we had this green space, it would not have been neglected and I can't take for granted the fact that not all neighborhoods are like ours. That said, we drive by this "park" all the time and really think a little clean up would go a long way.
Any idea which city council person represents this neck of the woods?
