I have mixed feelings about the Crawl. While I understand the premise of it is to raise the image of the city to a higher level, inundating City Hall with supposed bylaw infractions can actually make the city less likely to respond quickly to more serious infractions.

Also having unskilled or unqualified people comment on structural deficiencies creates a problem with reporting techniques. What one might see as small cracks another might call a crumbling block... That kind of thing. My view on the thing would be to limit the crawl to buildings that are vacant or businesses with a history of infractions. Commenting on personal (peoples' homes) is best left to those who are affected by it unless of course you have a house with four cars on jackstands in the front yard...
