If only all organizations gave the public the opportunity to post evaluations. Certainly many organizations get acidic email bombs flung out by the unhappy and the demented. But one imagines the sort of systematic survey offered by Shreveport Green will be used rather than tossed.

One hundred twenty-five beautification projects, including planting over 20,000 trees.
Reduced litter as measured by the Litter Index Score of 1.8.
