I am new to the area and concerned about the appearance of the city. There seems to be a lack of direction for landscaping and maintenance of common areas like medians, etc. Either we have no direction or a lack of standards.

Finances would be a poor argument as I am sure there is plenty of waste that could be reallocated. We look very bad and uninviting in comparison to our southern neighbors.
