Spread This Idea

Where

all visible abandoned-looking lots on drive from airport to downtown and rooftops visible from the Tower of the Americas. I only take visitors to the tower AFTER dark because it is so unattractive.

My idea to improve this place

have painting work days for citizens to spruce up shabby buildings and lots. I imagine clubs, troops (boy and girl scouts), just plain locals could rally around the effort in COOL WEATHER.

So that people could... 

see our best foot put forward. Some property owners just don't care, but maybe some don't have budgets for clean up. Maybe neighboring business owners would be interested in contributing toward costs since it would enhance their surroundings, too.

Because I want San Antonio to be...

remembered as BEAUTIFUL when tourists arrive and/or leave. I want them to want to come back and also recommend SA to friends.
