“I’ve noticed some of them are pretty bad, and it’s nice to have the brick streets. They give a nice atmosphere”

“Based upon mill levy, certain neighborhoods should be renewed. Most importantly, preserve the historic part of Lawrence that was settled by the New England Emigrant Aid Society.”

“No. I think brick roads are better than speed bumps at keeping speed down in residential neighborhoods.”
