A big clean up with a little compromise would be nice.

La Vega is not the city with a few new projects happening. The entire area around the center of town here in Santiago is under construction. It's going to an even better place to live once they're finished with everything.
Santiago? yes it will look different once the new mayor is in office....he was the old mayor before Martinez... remember the garbage problem..........
