  2. Because it’s the details that make a neighborhood worth being proud of and worth living in.

  3. The city and school district won’t let you put just anything up.

  4. I hope this will fix the walk signal. It is spotty, slow and I’m not sure the button does anything – luckily there is usually a car around to trigger the signal.

  5. Mike. I’m with you. It’s just a set of steps you know concrete with 2inch pipe hand rail with some flowers along side. It’s not a national monument.
