The oyster roast is very nice of Reid's, but I would rather they put their money toward cleaning up the sidewalks around Selwyn Corners. The amount of trash - cigarette butts, paper, wrappers, cans - around that shopping center is disgusting, particularly on the Colony Road side. I live in the neighborhood, and the property owner has done little if anything to address the problem.
