Whoops, I don't remember what house I mentioned from Walnut. But I think the Laura St location is viable, give a little love to west of Main. Busier street so setup may need to be in the large empty lot at the corner instead of halfway in the street as we have done before. Timeframe sounds good too, before it gets too horribly hot. Cathy, can you provide the particulars of what needs doing?

Also to consider, one of the 87 houses on the code enforcement list? Any of these a live-in owner who just needs a helping hand?

I rode by today and got the address. The other bungalow I was thinking of is 1717 Laura. Miss Rose was cited for no paint, like Miss Maggie. She got hold of some primer, and it's mostly primered, so it doesn't look too bad, but the dormer still doesn't have paint, and the house has only primer. So, that's two bungalow ideas on Laura - whichever needs love the most...

I love paint projects -- relatively cheap and gets a big bang.

I agree that this is a project we should consider. I also like the fact that the owner already did something.

me too...so let's start the ball rolling on this one...I suppose this should go to a vote....and of course, then owner contact/permission, then set up a date
