A quick question for the City of Tallahassee

A quick question for the city fathers of the capital city … 

I visit Tallahassee only a handful of times of year, so I won’t pretend to know whats goes on there. However, it would seem to me to be important that something be done about the eyesore of a vacant lot on the northeast corner of the intersection of Monroe and Tennessee streets. This is, for what it’s worth, one of the busiest intersections in Tallahassee and yet this parcel remains undeveloped. Again, not that I would know, but it seems like it’s been vacant for some time now. Because it’s a vacant lot, it’s strewn with litter and debris. 

Cities will have vacant lots, no doubt. But such a gaping hole right on one of Tallahassee’s most trafficked intersections stands out like a missing tooth from an otherwise beautiful smile.

Update: UrbanTallahassee.com has a story about this lot here.
