Front Porch Flags

June 20, 2007 at 12:25pm By: Mr. Wilson Posted in The Lincolnite Blog

I recently noticed that several of the new houses on Vine Street east of Antelope Valley are really into flags. The first time I drove past I thought perhaps I had stumbled onto a parade route. I wonder if the flags—a combination of U.S. and other nations’ flags—are required by a landlord or homeowners association contract or something. The flags give the stretch a nice, “cute” look. Now if they could just make sure there are always children outside jumping rope and blowing bubbles, it would be impossible to drive by and not say “Awww!”

My husband is convinced the houses are UNL international married student housing.  I tried to explain to him that they are not, but it doesn’t seem to make any difference. He, like you, doesn’t see any group of neighbors being that spontaneously patriotic. :O)

It certainly is better than houses full of old furniture and appliances and garbage on their front porches.

Is this the area that I saw a story on TV about recently that is all new homes and the people are nearly all immigrants from other countries? It was in that area I know - I was thinking 29th & Vine or something like that.

The houses on the other side (U st?) have them too. I was wondering if the flags might denote the nationality of the people within… They might have been a gift to the occupants.

After driving past the flags several times, I finally noticed a sign on the corner naming the project as “Liberty Village” by Brighton Construction.  One online source indicates, “ENERGY STAR

Ayup. That was what the news story was about alright.

This is (apparently) the first multicultural village they have done and it went over so well they plan another in Lincoln and more in other cities.

It was a “feel-good” story.
