The alley between Garland Avenue and Hanes Avenue is deteriorating badly. It's riddled with 3" to 8" deep potholes throughout. There have been several requests for alley maintenance dating back into 2014 and nthing has been done, it's almost impossible to drive through. Each rain makes it worse and Emergency and First Responders will have serious difficulty should there be a fire, health issue or police response needed. Just have someone from the City drive through it and you'll see. Please please please make this alley a priority and have it regraded and graveled. Thank you!
The timing of the traffic signal going in either direction on Brookland Pkwy needs to be reexamined for higher traffic volumes. Currently only three cars can successfully pass during rush hour. Many people run this light as a result.
Maintenance work processed on gas lines/meters in the summer of 2010 - workers equipment has destroyed the curbside. Erosion is occurring down into the roadway - storm water drains are being blocked. Requesting curbs be restructured.
R-6 single family residence is being used as an illegal boarding house. Currently four (4) person(s) occupy. People are moving in/out with only 1-2 black plastic garbage bags. One will move out and within hours another moves in. Owner is not an occupant. There is no business license on file.
On several occasions it has been noted that men are going into the rear of this property, pulling down their trousers and using the bathroom [squatting position]. They then proceed to undress and change into other clothing. Entire process is in the corner near the satellite dish. Police have not had time to respond. Backyard is unsecured as the gate is off the hinges.
House was posted with a red sticker on Thursday July 21,2011. Uninhabitable - One unit no water/electricity. Another unit ceiling falling in. Three apts. - six tenants are still dwelling in units. Four have health issues - 3 of which are breathing. Juvenile tenant of lower unit has just scrapped off the sticker from the window. Cnclmn Hilbert is aware of the problem as is the landlord/owner. Something needs to be NOW
Terrible, terrible pot holes all through the 2800 block of the alley between Hanes and Garland. They have been here for a year or longer and have steadily grown worse and worse. I can no longer park my sedan in back because the pot holes cause my car to bottom out on the gravel
Tree on the south side of the property is dead. Large limb fell on the adjacent property, 2907 Barton Ave., during the last strong. Dominion Va. Power had to restore power. Requesting the owner of the property address the issue and have the tree removed. Tenants are not concerned.
