EDITORIAL: Unblight conference may provide a way forward in fight

Experts from all over the country are descending on Macon today and tomorrow to talk through one of Macon’s thorniest issues: blight. Macon is not alone when it comes to suffering from blighted conditions. Urban areas all over the country are in the same battle. But in Macon, the blight seems particularly acute. In some areas of town there are blocks of uninhabited homes and vacant lots. There are about 4,000 uninhabited homes in the county, and that number doesn’t include homes that are inhabited but in various stages of decay.
