The affordable housing homeownership development on the 1700 block of Federal Street, which we’ve told you about in the past, is nearing the finish line.

Sure, we see graffiti on buildings all over town, but not usually on homes that were just built. Hopefully, the developers will deal with this soon. Broken window theory, ya know?
