Jeff, the city has spent the past two years planning projects to “revitalize” the small business districts. You will see the districts rewarded with the spoils in upcoming council action soon. I think it is a good time to start looking at revitalizing our residential neighborhoods with a comprehensive plan to underground all power lines. And while we are digging things up, we can improve the alleys with pavers and other water improving and esthetic enhancing material. That would make alleys much more livable and it would improve property values. If the alleys are nicer, better planning may go into the backside of homes. It would have a positive impact on the flower streets in the CdM village because of the R2 zoning with front and rear units.

Completely agree with all your comments. Especially the benefits to the R2 lots. It would definitely improve property value throughout the city... Also don't forget many homes with rooftop decks... It would be nice to sit up there and not see the spider webs of wires as well!
