Vacant lot could be an asset to the community | Letter to the editor

To the editor:

I’ve been glad to read your various reports on the burgeoning of Lynwood Center, but curious why the eyesore elephant in the room — the giant vacant parking lot surrounded by what looks to be a prison fence — hasn’t been a subject of inquiry (apologies if there was an article and I missed it).

In short, what can we do to encourage the owners of that lot to enter into the community spirit, in some way?

The space would make a great park/parking lot, right there in the heart of the neighborhood that visiting friends called, “The kind of place people go for vacation.”
