The New Era - All about Sweet Home since 1929

Brighten up Sweet Home's downtown


December 16, 2020


Who is trying to uglify our town? Did they find a bargain on dark gray paint by the barrel?

Oregon winters are gray – brighten up! No more gray paint!

I’m glad the city wants owners of empty buildings to clean them up. They should stretch the requirement one notch farther. The empty storefronts should look alive, attractive, even if the doors are locked. Windows could be painted seasonally, as is often done for Christmas.

Out-of-town owners should not be allowed to make our town look dowdy.

Beautify, or be penalized (fined?).
