Empty Lots Replacing Torn Down Buildings In North End

The city is making a concerted effort to demolish over a hundred dilapidated buildings around town but the big question remains........What, if anything, will go up in their place?

Tammy Calvin of One Change in the North End tells CHSJ News the empty lots themselves are proving to be a problem with garbage being dumped on them.

Calvin goes on to say they have taken the old tires that have been dumped on the empty lots and filled them with flowers.

She also tells us on one of these empty lots in the neighbourhood, there are rebars sticking up which are a danger to the children who are using it as a playground.
