Disgrace to our neighborhood

I live on Mastick Avenue.  There is a duplex on the corner of Mastick and San Felipe that has been abandoned and tagged for many years.  It has become a garbage dump - a place where furniture has been thrown in the front driveway, bags of trash, clothing and everything imaginable.  I do not understand how the City allows this to sit unattended and an embarassment to our neighborhood.  I have lived in San Bruno for 28 years, have raised my children in this town and paid my taxes. I am fed up with this City going backwards and looking worse and worse all the time.  I know that many complaints have been filed, but nothing is done about this eyesore.  My days in San Bruno are numbered - this is not a town I wish  to stay in any longer.

San Bruno patch recently posted an article about the volunteer work that was done at Parkside Intermediate school. THANK YOU ALL for the people who were involved in this effort. Kudos to the community, parents, and volunteer organizations that dedicated their time on painting the walls, cleaning, and creating a mural that reflects the spirit of San Bruno. A special thank you to Ray Fucini for 'championing' the volunteer effort. We need more people like Ray to help the whole community change for the better. Perhaps City leaders can take on the roles of being involve in these type of programs, programs that can improve the livelihood of San bruno residents by forming organizations and alliances with various parties, that responsibly monitor and utilize funds to improve or reopen local schools, redevelop blight areas, and reduce homeless and crime. Ken, are you in?

Does anybody know who owns the building between Mastick and San Mateo Ave, the one that's a bum encampment? I might know someone who is interesting in redeveloping it.

Good morning.check with the building dept. They should have all the information. Also, check online county of san mateo and put in address..most of the current property owners downtown do not want to invest/cleanup/paint or enforce city regulations. Just get the money and maintain a lease. Whatever the renter does is okay with owners.
