Problem

Insufficient care of community property

Other Names:
Disrespected public property
Nature:
Pride in the physical appearance of a community may be seen as a motivating symbol of the pride of the residents in the community itself. In many communities, public and private property is vandalized and neglected; buildings are left locked and unsupervised, paint peeling and windows broken as a result both of natural decay and deliberate vandalism; cemeteries are often overgrown with weeds; roadside ditches are clogged with vegetation and debris; in the absence of a community refuse pick-up system, wastes are dumped on yards or roadways; vandalism of family gardens by wandering animals and children decreases the yield of homegrown produce. Only when ways are found to provide adequate care for village property will residents be able to generate and maintain pride in their community.
