Shiloh's Illegal Posters Addressed
The illegal posters on Shiloh's vacant properties at 1526 and 1528 9th Street are no longer cluttering the streetscape along the 1500 block of 9th! Perhaps in response to the activism of one concerned citizen, (presumably) the church had them covered in brown adhesive paper recently (I noticed it last night). Also covered in the brown paper are the fading portraits of Langston Hughes and Harriet Tubman painted on the boarded up first floor windows of 1532 9th Street.
Many thanks go out again to the citizen who took action in calling attention to this issue and to the Church for taking responsibility. I was surprised to see what a difference this makes on the 1500 block--things already look a lot cleaner. Hopefully this will be one of many positive actions that the Church's new leadership takes in addressing the Church's historically poor property stewardship in Shaw.
