Good observations Andrea, a great deal of the issue I saw in Ward 3 was not related to only renovation issues but also property standards and maintenance.

So if we encourage home ownership in the lower city wards through a Future Fund loan program I agree that we would see an improvement in general property standards. I also think many properties stagnate in the lower wards due to simple things like older windows, sagging roof porches, knob & tube wiring (I spent $10,000 replacing this), and the new insurance bugaboo aluminum wiring. An incentive program to improve on these and other maladies common to older homes would help improve the optics of the city as well as the attitude towards the lower wards.
