City Plans to Publicly Shame Landlords Who Don’t Shovel — Design News

Somerville, Massachusetts property owners are about to get The Scarlet Letter treatment. Do you think it will work? The city plans to call out those who don’t shovel their sidewalks in a timely manner by “hanging large, strikingly-colored door knockers on the properties of these offenders, which not only brings attention to the property owners, but make the neighbors aware of a citation that’s being served to such property,” said Alderman Mary Jo Rossetti. • Somerville Will Hand Out ‘Scarlet Letters’ for Unshoveled Sidewalks | Boston Magazine
