Big Mess in North Overton

It promises to revitalize North Overton, but right now the largest redevelopment project in the nation is causing concern for some residents.

"Children play in the rubble. I go to work very early in the morning and it's still dark and I see rats running through the rubble and the cats won't eat the rats because the rats are bigger than the cats," said Jim Watters, a North Overton resident.

Watters proposes that the council put a moratorium on flattening homes and buildings until the rubble and debris from previously bulldozed homes is cleaned up.
