Folks in the City of Escondido who are tired of looking at foreclosure signs in their neighborhoods are going to get some relief. Maybe.

Apparently, city leaders are stepping in to try and help clean up the city by proposing to fine landlords and/or banks who own said properties that are bringing the aesthetics of these neighborhoods down.

First offense fines could increase from $1,000 per day up from $100 a day, according to a story reported by NBCSandiego.com.

Escondido isn’t the ony neighborhood where “bank owned, and other ugly “foreclosure” signs paint the landscape. Cities throughout the region can be seen on any given day rearing their ugly heads. Unfortunately, for those of us who prefer white picket fence neighborhoods, it may be some time before we find ourselves back in Mayberry.

How many signs do you have in your neighborhood?
