JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

A west Jackson family called 3 on Your Side to point out their concerns about an abandoned and burned out property sitting next door for years. They have turned to the city to bulldoze the eyesore, but so far nothing has changed.

The Lavallee family has lived in their home on Queen Elizabeth Lane for 34 years. They raised 5 children here, know all their neighbors well and kept their property up.

"I love Jackson and want to stay in Jackson, said Martha Lavallee Love. "But I just am troubled because they need to care for these abandoned places."

Much to their despair and concern, an abandoned house sits right next door. Even more worrisome, An abandoned burned out home is two doors up.

"It's a worrisome thing, added Love. "There is no way people want to live here when they see that next door."

Their home is on the market and they are hoping  the city will eventually come in and remove  these two structures, making it better for someone else.
