    9th St N And 17th Ave N Saint Petersburg, Florida - St. Petersburg
    The cross walk painted on 9th St N near 17th Ave N is used frequently by people going to/from Crescent Lake. However, the street marking and signage are so hard to see that many drivers speed past while people are waiting to cross. It is very dangerous for pedestrians, especially the many children in the surrounding neighborhoods. In this location - where drivers don't stop at the area designated as the safest place to cross - the cross walk only provides a false sense of security. Is it possible to repaint the cross walk, making it more obvious to drivers, and to place better signage on the side of the road? Ideally, the best option would be to install a median (similar to that on 4th St N near 20th Ave N) that made the pedestrian crossing more obvious. Thank you for your attention to this matter!

    On December 1, the City of St. Pete sent out a crew to poison the water lettuce on Crescent Lake. There are a number of issues here:

    1) There needs to be an early warning system so residents around the lake and any of our citizens walking in the vicinity of the lake can make a point of removing themselves out of the poison zone.

    2) It was very windy that morning, causing the poison to drift all over the sidewalks at the lake as well as into the surrounding neighborhoods. The poison crew should have decided upon observing the weather conditions that this was NOT the day to spread the herbicide. A number of neighbors reported that they and their dogs were covered in the herbicide. Also, much of the vegetation on the banks was covered in poison as were many of our water fowls, turtles, etc. This should have never happened.

    3) The city needs to disclose the poisons it sprays. And please remember, just because something is EPA approved does NOT make it safe. A lot of the poisons commonly and freely used in the U.S. have long been outlawed in other fully industrialized countries.

    4) The city needs to address the use of fertilizers in its neighborhoods as fertilizer runoff is the culprit here. Being able to sport St. Augustine grass is NOT more important than the health of our communities, the lake, and our urban wildlife.

    In summary, there needs to be better communication from the city to its residents. I for one want to have the opportunity to completely remove myself and my animals from the neighborhood whenever the city decides to spray. The city also need to come up with a long-term plan targeted at preventing the growth of algae and water lettuce.

    The cross walk light on the Crescent Lake side of MLK is not working any more. It does both flash or talk anymore. If you could please fix it as soon as possible that would be greatly appreciated. It is very hard to cross MLK safely even when the lights are working and it is very very unsafe to do so at that location now.

    Thank you

    Recently two new geese have arrived at crescent lake park. These are not part of the group that has been here for ages and keeps its distance. These new geese have been claiming the playground as there new home. On numerous occasions these geese have attacked children in the park. These geese need to be relocated out of our park for the safety of our children.
    I do emphasize that these are not part of the normal group of geese that are not an issue. Please do not remove or relocate the large group of geese, just the two loners.

    As a long time resident of the Five Points neighborhood and someone who spends many hours in Crescent Lake Park, I am concerned with the rapidly increasing vegetation in the lake itself. While I am aware of the volunteer program, their efforts are not sufficient to keep the growth under control. Is there a program in place to address the growth?
