Now the house itself is probably OK. I'll leave that to potential buyers.
But look at the weeds that are swallowing up its front yard. They're a couple of yards high. It's like Bristol has decided to create a bit of native prairie in the front yard of a house on one of its busier streets.
It's kind of funny listening to city leaders vowing to crack down on blight, promising to clean up Bristol, and then see this house, which the city has owned for a month, that clearly hasn't received one iota of attention since the city took possession of it in a foreclosure case.
If the house belonged to somebody else, the code enforcement committee would be all over it.Somebody needs to go cut whatever's left of the grass. Chop down the weeds.
