Requests: road safety
46 Sw 25th St Gainesville, FloridaThe residents of 46 SW 25th street were seen parking vehicles without a visible permit on their property on 09/17/16. They charged each vehicle to park on the property and even parked cars directly blocking any means of exit or egress through their front-facing entrance to the property. They were seen to be reckless in their arrangement of parked cars and made no efforts to maintain safety in or around their property, with almost a dozen cars parked in a haphazard fashion on their lawn.· Reported by Spencer Smigielski · Flag Flagged
Nw 17th St & Nw 1st Ave Gainesville, FL, 32603, USAI, among several others in the community have been involved in car collisions at the intersection of NW 17TH ST and NW 1ST AVE. This intersection lacks a key stop sign for 17TH street. Many in the community feel that the addition of the stop sign will improve the safety of pedestrians and motorists.

600 W. University Ave Gainesville, FloridaDid Public Works measure traffic counts on 6th Street recently (as part of their ongoing design re-do of both NW and SW 6th Streets? Can you provide updated ADT numbers for 6th Street near University Ave? Any sense of transit, pedestrian, bicycle, moped, scooter, skateboard levels of usage there?
Nw 20th Ave. At Nw 8th St. Gainesville, FloridaI live in the Pine Park neighborhood directly east of the Lux 13 (formerly Hidden Lake) Apartments. In mid-March I contacted City Planning to report the pedestrian gate required by the Development Order of the first phase (in exchange for a density increase) was locked. I was told by staff that GPD requested the gate to be locked for 30 days during an investigation. I think the 30 days will end soon (by next week), yet I am writing during Public Health Week to ensure this matter is resolved with no extensions. I have neighbors on both sides of this gate who use it for access to transit and for social visits. The gate affords a more direct path for some trips. I am concerned about any proposals that limit walking, because according to the US Center for Disease Control, regular physical activity that is performed on most days of the week reduces the risk of developing or dying from some of the leading causes of illness and death in the United States. Regular physical activity improves health in the following ways:
• Reduces the risk of dying prematurely.
• Reduces the risk of dying prematurely from heart disease.
• Reduces the risk of developing diabetes.
• Reduces the risk of developing high blood pressure.
• Helps reduce blood pressure in people who already have high blood pressure.
• Reduces the risk of developing colon cancer.
• Reduces feelings of depression and anxiety.
• Helps control weight.
• Helps build and maintain healthy bones, muscles, and joints.
• Helps older adults become stronger and better able to move about without falling.
• Promotes psychological well-being.
While I support all efforts for local law enforcement to ensure public safety, I also think our City must address public health issues. I assume that closing a street to vehicular traffic requires prior GPD approval, yet GPD should not be allowed to change the requirements of development approval. if a pedestrian gate is a requirement for allowing a developer more density (ie. Economic gain) there must be mechanisms to ensure this pedestrian access is required in perpetuity. I hope the gate will reopen soon.· Reported by Kathleen W. Pagan · Flag Flagged

4628 Nw 41st St Gainesville, FL, 32606, USAThere has been a bathtub in the front yard of this residence since early May 2019. I am concerned for the safety of the neighborhood children as this could be a hazard if one were to get trapped underneath it. It is also an eyesore.
