Peduto vows to clean up - PittsburghLIVE.com Peduto's 'Operation Red' measure would put large red signs in front of the buildings and list the name, address and phone number of the landlord in question so residents can call owners directly.
How does one clean up the neighborhood with large red signs in front of rentals?
As it is now, we've got a ton of for sale signs. Next we'll have these red signs too? They will stand out like sore thumbs saying, don't feel safe here, don't move here, don't stop your car!
The red signs gotta go. But, the same info can be better delivered on the internet with technology.
Map Pittsburgh is touted as a solution to Pittsburgh's woes. Talk about technology as an answer for the delivery of information in terms of troubled property ownership.
The owners who get their rents are not going to show any worry about a sign at the rental property. Rather, how about if we put the sign in the home owners lawn, not in the rental's location? Signs that spring up in the suburban locations are sure to raise some desired effect. Of course that isn't going to happen. But, it would be a much better suggestion.
The sign suggestion is: costly with materials and employees, ugly, hard to update, and screams wolf to no avail. Using technology would greatly help matters.
