These abandoned buildings are the scourge of the neighborhoods. They attract problems, affect property values, lower the quality of the neighborhoods, and possibly result in some serious injury to the local residents and the people breaking into the buildings. I don't understand why the city council members aren't more responsive.
Hopefully, the Reader's reporters will stay on top of this problem and keep a fire (no pun intended) under the toes of our elected officials and developers.

As much as I hate to see public funds used (indirectly through tax credits), this type of affordable housing development is desperately needed. The per square foot costs are usually exorbitant on them. It makes you wonder if the bidding process is really working in the public's favor. I'd like to see more affordable housing built in some of the outlying cities like Santee, and El Cajon. These are generally less expensive areas to build and nearer to employment centers. Perhaps, fewer tax credits would be used and a wider range of people would benefit from them.

Videos might be the answer. Perhaps, our city council people and/or their reps. could video tape walking their districts, interview the locals and post the good/bad/ and ugly along with their actions to resolve issues.

There are certainly many more worse crimes going on during these large events that the police can focus on. Times are changing and less clothing isn't that unacceptable as it once was. Bottom line, no pun intended, laws need to be enforced equally or changed.

Very interesting article. Sounds like this is just the beginning of a longer story on the evolution of Hillcrest in to a higher and higher priced part of the city. I bet North Park would welcome Revivals.

To be or not to two bees? The question has been answered with this beautiful picture.

I agree dwbat, green is the new white except at the refreshed Ralph's Shopping Center in Hillcrest. White is back along with grey.

I'm thinking retail since it's being gutted. Just about anything would be an improvement. "F" Street was a good neighbor while they maintained the building and grounds. Unfortunately, that all changed a couple years ago and it got progressively worse.

Love the title of this article, it caught my attention! I've stopped by this Radio Shack location a couple times and found the sales people to be very helpful. I hope they are able to stay in Hillcrest. They're in a very competitive business and somehow need to change their image to one more current.Good luck to them.
