    What is Hollygrove Neighbors (the local neighborhood assciation) saying about this? Don’t they realized that if all the homes that are not occupied in Hollygrove are demolished, that there won’t be a Hollygrove left? Nothing is being built in their place. They really need to get the people in this area mobilized. They are losing blocks of single family houses at a time. It’s beyond sad.
