These photos could very well become the new picture postcards of Evergreen. They tell a story about how a ghost town looks in its early stages of neglect and deterioration.
Without a city government (and I’m certainly not promoting one!), when things fall apart, they don’t get fixed.
There isn’t any clout in working with State and Federal entities to repair flood-damaged bridges. Nearly four years after flooding, we are still looking at cones, barriers and a one-lane bridge leading to the Lake House. Barriers along the lake trail keep visitors and locals alike from walking around the lake because of erosion undermining the embankment.
There aren’t any teeth. Volunteer groups have tried and tried over the years to address the issues but have been relatively unsuccessful at getting much done, whether it be improving sidewalks or crosswalks, or getting flood damage fixed.
