Since there are no sidewalks on the far side of the street no people will be crossing to get to the cornfield.

Planning ahead evidently, just like they did with the fire station that sat empty for years and is now a storage facility. At least this one didn’t cost millions (that we know of!)

FYI: They could have done something pretty like this that didn’t require mowing:

Expanding the payroll (buying votes) is more fun!
