If my information is right, Higgins has a major asbestos issue and the cost to either tear down or rebuild the place is pretty high because of possible contamination....Unless someone has a good idea to deal with it, this town seem to let the place rot

Wasn't there a call to force property owners to deal with blight issues last year? I recall reading about a lot of "wringing of the hands" on the owners part on seeing this town really come down on enforcement. If this is so, it's no wonder blight continues when there is no real legal threat to take owners to task

Well J..... You must not have your info right either because one of the families in that building is not on section 8 and are good people Im not sure about the other family but nobody has any complaints about them either...just because your new to the neighbor hood dosent mean you know anything...ok because from what I see you and yours have your own little nasty problems so look in the mirror.....

Reply to Steve on the Higgins building, Yes, there is an asbestos issue as well as many others that would need to be corrected to today's standards. However, the Higgins building is only one of a couple of historical buildings left in Enfield. Let me remember when the " old Enfield High School" was a big mess. It was expensive to renovate yes, but it is done, beautiful and continues to be a facilty for our town to be proud of, while preserving our towns history. About two or three years (or maybe a little more) we voted to allow $500,000. for some life saving renovations to the Higgins building. Where has the many years of taxes to maintain our town buildings and this allotted funds go. Maybe this is the time to get quotes, businesses are looking for projects and it will never get cheaper to update. Steve, there is a blight law. Many laws are on the books but aren't really enforsed or only enforsed once in a while. This is why I mentioned previous about the commentment needed to really make a difference here. All resources decending on Thompsonville (like in the movies, the good guys coming to the rescue), being persistant for as long a duration needed to see improvement.

Janet is on to something here. Thompsonville is like a mini Hartford, where you need a ghetto passport to get into certain areas. I blame people being deported from Springfield, and also the express bus line from Hartford. You know these people are broke like the "blah blah blah" respondent who takes it personally that she sits at home all day watching tv, Jerry, QVC (even though she cant afford anything) and praying her baby daddy stops by to bring her 20 bucks for milk and diapers (in exchange for 100 dollars worth of ass), and of course comment on boards and harrass her neighbor, who is being called a newbie because he is new to the shithole he rented. Escape from New York, Escape from LA, and now Escape from Enfield. I see a movie in the making that can spark some spending in this horrific neighborhood. Or better yet, lets get the Chamber of Commerce involved. Weed pulls in good money.
