Urban Renewal on the 200 Block of Main
This used to be a low area - gonna be green in 14.
Remember the ratty old Fire Barn? The bees are relocated and the hole filled in.
The vacant house is gone along with the weeds and old trees.
No more weeds and the iris, peonies and lilies have been adopted.
Now this property is owned by people living in Alvo who hope to improve and develop their land.
