This forgotten section of Division St. needs some love
As a community, can we do better?
Looking north at Randolph and Division St. on the east side. Wide open, broken sidewalk, a car-lot, and the Elk’s Club’s back-end leave little to be desired for communicating this is a place for people. Yet, around the corner is a bakery, a bank, a party store, a restaurant and across the street, the Dairy Lodge.

2011 could see some improvements along this corridor. What those improvements entail will largely be up to community residents’ persistence. A list of small requests, things like a beautification project in the stretch shown above, has been sent to the city. These projects won’t fix the entire street, but they should help.
