I am a lifelong resident of West Sacramento. I am greatly disturbed at the lack of attention that, seemingly, some of the older parts of West Sacramento are getting. I’ve taken these pictures recently on Merkeley between Poplar and West Acres, less than 1/2 mile from City Hall. It is consistently in this shape and no one seems to care. This is what I see everday when I’m on my way home, it looks as though I live in a 3rd world country. This is visible from West Capitol as well as Merkeley. I will be printing these pictures soon and sending them to City Hall and hopefully, our entire city will receive the same treatment as the newer parts of town. These were all taken on the same day and all within that 1 block area.
