Marathon needs to spruce itself up

I always wonder why Marathon is such a mess. Having lived in Key West and now here in Delray Beach, I travel hundreds of times on the great Overseas Highway to Key West and back. Going through Marathon is disgusting.

When will they fix the city as we see it from the highway, up? I like to stop at some of the nice places there but that's about it. There's no excuse to have such a messy place at all. It would be so easy to just spruce up the commercial areas along both sides of the highway and make it a lot better to look at. I think it would attract lots more business. Maybe a start can be made along the airport.
