"The most amazing thing is that this started with 10 signs.”

Preservation Nation:

It was the last straw for neighbors like Tad Skelton, who had watched eight houses fall for new ones in one of the town’s two national historic districts. Skelton and others planted red plastic signs in their yards, protesting the teardown trend. Today 550 front yards in the town of 27,000 display the “Protect Historic Kirkwood” signs.
Something for the folks in Greensboro's Kirkwood to think about.
