MEMPHIS, TN -
Urban blight has been a prime focus of our "Taking Back Our Neighborhoods" project since it began almost four years ago, so we were thrilled to hear this week that Mayor A C Wharton has launched a campaign to fight blight in the city of Memphis.
I think you'll be hard pressed to find anybody who doesn't think that's a good idea, except of course the owners of these dilapidated houses. In many cases, these are people who live in other states or suburban Shelby County. Wharton's comment to the absentee landlords was direct. He warned them that "if it's not good enough for you where you live, it's not good enough for the city of Memphis."
The mayor's attorney said their next target will be the banks that own foreclosed properties in the city. This all sounds great Mayor Wharton, but please don't stop there. There are a number of large commercial real estate properties that should also be on your list of prime targets.
That's my turn. Now it's your turn. To comment on this segment or anything else, email email@example.com or call 800-465-1210.
