How People Affect Property Values
Neighborhoods hold value because of the people who live there and public sentiment. Unfortunately, public sentiment normally out weights the character of the residents.
I suggest Cordova residents use the skills theyuse at work at home. What do you mean?
Well, public sentiment is shaped by information and lack of information. The best way to keep Cordova strong and viable is to keep public sentiment on your side, Keep the media spinning positive stories about Cordova and its residents.
The neighbors who spin for pay at FedEx, IP, Shelby County and Memphs City Government can do the same for the newly formed Cordova Home Owners, Business Owners, Landlords Association. Use of your skills to make a paycheck can also be used to protect your family and their way of life.
I suggest the formation of a Neighborhood Association but on a mass scale....an oversight board of sort that retains the services of PR, Legal, etc.
By doing this, you all but ensure that things will remain the same in your area.
