Description

Extremely Overgrown Vegetation At NW Corner Of Fremont Place North & North 160th Streer In Shoreline.

This is now a safety hazard, as the vegetation is now blocking a clear view of pedestrians and traffic coming down the hill east on N. 160th St.

Pictures are attached. This was taken from the driver's seat looking west on N. 160th St. This is the first place (in my opinion) where I had a safe and clear view of the downhill traffic. But look where the door jamb is...at the curb and the front quarter of the car is in the lane of N. 160th St.

To get a really clear view you must move into lane #1 of N. 160th westbound close to 1/3 of the lane into possible oncoming traffic. A few months ago, someone cleared part of the area, but not the whole area. The vines also drop over the sidewalk as well.

This needs to be fixed as soon as possible (it really is a driving hazard), and I appreciate the great service the Shoreline government and its workers in past requests, I hope this will be dealt with promptly.

But...

This is/has been an ongoing maintenance issue, and the city might consider it for their list of things"to-do".

I've attempted contact with the owner of the corner house (where part of the vegetation leans on their fence) about this matter and have been ignored. They want nothing to do with any maintenance outside their fence.

I honestly don't know whose legal responsibility it is to keep this clear and visible for traffic vs. letting vegetation grown, that is a problem that the city may have to take up with the owner. But for now, it really needs fixing and I hope the city will take action and clear this.

Thank you very much for your service, time, and consideration....
