  • Fossil Park St Petersburg, FL, USA - Fossil Park Neighborhood Association
    Sleeping overnight on picnic tables under the large pavilion. This is a public health risk, as these folks have no port-o-let to use, and no way to wash their hands after using our lake and canal as a restroom. We are currently under high alert due to the increasing incidence of Hepatitis A, which is spread though fecal-oral contamination. Families & children unknowingly use these contaminated tables to celebrate & eat. Thank you for your attention to this matter.

    Canal on north side of Fossil Park : loose shrub branches recently trimmed by staff have not yet been removed and are in the canal . They are creating a dam, impeding flow of water along overgrown pathway. additional images to follow in comment section below.
  • Fossil Park St Petersburg, FL, USA - Fossil Park Neighborhood Association
    Multiple people "living" in Fossil Park. Sleeping on tables & benches with backpacks, belongings & bicycles throughout the park. No room or appeal for family picnics at any shelter. What is especially unsanitary is sleeping on tables (Hep A concern), using overgrown path between lake & canal on north side of park, as a rest room. Smells like a Port-o-Let when you walk by. There is a lounge chair stashed in the shrubs where someone likely sleeps at night. Also needs major trimming/pruning to allow for water flow during hurricane season. Not safe or sanitary for children.

    North side Fossil Park: dangerous driving on public right-of-way, swerving around recently installed fence, obstructing what was once a designated alley (aka 70th ave N). See related archived issues 4320642 & 4326235

    Shrub trimming needed , path on north side of park, in between lake and canal.
    People are damaging the mangroves by bending them down to create "bridge" over the canal , allowing for access to private property on N side of canal.
    Also using area as "restroom", urinating & defecating in between shrubs , into lake & canal. Trimming back the height & width of shrubs would help greatly to deter this poor & unsanitary behavior. See attached images.

    Requesting resurfacing of 70th Ave N (between 7th & 8th Sts) due to added wear & tear by City vehicles & heavy equipment during recent dredging of canal on North side of Fossil Park.
  • 8th St N St. Petersburg, FL 33702, USA - Fossil Park Neighborhood Association
    Fractured my ankle on 7/18 while walking on 8th st N, north side of Fossil Park. There have been numerous requests plus a signed petition regarding poor conditions in this area, and now a painful injury requiring minimum 6 week healing time , medical expenses & loss of wages.

    City Sanitation truck uses 70th Ave N (aka 'alley') at 8th St when servicing the Parkview Condo dumpster, contributing to degradation of the roadway. Multiple utility and public service vehicles routinely drive on roadway while on their way to other job sites, as well as the general public, when searching for the entrance to Fossil Park. This has not disturbed the majority of residents in the past. However, attention was brought to the area recently when only one specific dead-end section of 70th Ave N (used only by residents), was resurfaced. The open-ended section of the road that is travelled & used by may vehicles, including City Sanitation, as can be seen by attached photo, and has not yet been resurfaced. As taxpayers, we would like equal service to this section of 70th ave N.

    localized flooding - we need resurfacing - - please !
  • 798 71st Ave N Saint Petersburg, Florida - Fossil Park Neighborhood Association
    The residents of the 700 block of 70th avenue north are still waiting for response as to specific date(s) of service road resurfacing. We received notices informing us of a start date of Feb 01, 2016, and it is already May. One block over (the 600 block) was done months ago , and we have been repeatedly overlooked. Pinellas County Property Appraiser shows that all homes on those blocks are of the same size. Google maps shows the road as 70th Ave N (not labelled as 'alley') Why is the 700-800 section of 70th Avenue North considered 'private' , while the 600 block is maintained by the city ? We have a petition signed by a majority of the residents requesting equal service.

    70th Ave N (service alley) , between 7th & 8th Aves. Multiple potholes, street in disrepair, needs resurfacing. The section between 6th & 7th aves was resurfaced, west 0f 7th ave has been neglected, despite repeated requests for equal service.

    Multiple people are urinating & defecating on the south bank of canal 15, under the large shrub (near large shelter, across from Park View Condos). This issue has been previously reported, with no results. People have been seen exposing themselves, carrying roll of toilet paper into the area which has resulted in a a build up of soiled toilet paper along the bank of the canal. Solutions offered by the public (trim the shrub, install a port-o-let, have a 'beat cop' monitor the area) have not been implemented by local authorities.The entire stretch of canal has been in need of clean up for quite some time. It ultimately links to the Weedon Island State Preserve. Next communication will be to the media and the EPA.
