With six gas stations within 1/4 mile of the five Points intersection, the city should step up and brag a bit. There aren't many highway exchanges with that sort of density. It may be a bit off-putting but will at least be more descriptive of the area than "Five Points".
Twickingham and Old Town were never zoned to include the Mertz Office Complex. Is was and was suppose to be a school. The Mertz Office Complex employees refuse to use the Complex's parking lot, opting instead to clog our neighborhood with their cars.

New No Parking signs were recently put up on Randolph Ave. in response to the bad parking behavior of the Annie Mertz office complex employees.

Or perhaps the historic building on Franklin(around the corner from Harrison Bros.) where ...more »
Why bother trying to make Ditto Landing nice. With the addition of the new industrial sand loading dock just across the river, why not just turn Ditto into and industrial zone. We are halfway there already!
Five Points retail looks like a ghetto. Big ideas are great, but how about putting some creative energy into things we already have. The city is good about controlling residential property in Five Points while the retail falls into ruination. It is time to implement some zoning guidelines for Five Points retail development to go along with the residential ones.
