CA town spray paint lawns to fight foreclosure blight

Link

Milligan recently colored several brown lawns on one street in the Villages of Avalon development. Money for the city's lawn outreach is coming out of $2 million the city has set aside to try to stabilize foreclosure-fraught neighborhoods.

Money is also going toward helping people make down payments on homes and helping current property owners improve their houses.
