2100 Ridge Road Raleigh, NC - Glenwood
My daughter walks to and from Lacy Elementary every day in her wheelchair from our house at 2100 Ridge Road. She has Osteogenesis Imperfecta, also known as Brittle Bones, which means her bones break very easily. There are several places along that walk (on the southern or even numbered side of Ridge) where the earth on one or both of the sidewalk edges is dangerously low and could cause her wheelchair to tip over if her wheel goes off the edge. This is a potentially fatal hazard for her. She is in first grade and will be using this sidewalk for the next 8 years (through middle school). I would love to get some help to fix the areas that are hazardous. Would it be possible to meet with someone to look at this with me? If not, I have written down the addresses of most of the areas. The area of most concern is from the intersection of Lake Boone Trail and Ridge to 1900 Ridge. This section of sidewalk is narrower due to the bushes on the southern side encroaching on the sidewalk and then a 2" plus drop off on the other side. We had a scary close call there this week, which finally motivated me to write to you.
The other areas that I have noted were at 1908 Ridge, 1920 Ridge, 1924 Ridge, and 2000 Ridge.
Could you please look at the curb access on both sides of Lake Boone trail? As we cross and get on and off the curb you have to go down towards the line of traffic due to the angle of the curb cuts.
Please feel free to contact me if you need further information or guidance. Thank yo uso much for helping us with this.

Inbound Wade Avenue - GlenwoodSomething has got to be done about cars trying to make left hand turns onto side streets along inbound Wade avenue. The backups they are causing with the cars coming over the hills in the area at high speeds is incredibly dangerous and causing major issues at rush hour. Left turns are not possible at these times but people continue to try as oppose to using the signals at Dixie and Brooks. Im guessing small median strips at these areas to prevent this will be the onlty solution but it should be considered.

1301 Nottingham Rd Raleigh, North Carolina - GlenwoodConstruction site run off. Hi. This lot has been subdivided into two lots and has been essentially clear cut. The now connected lot is 1303 Nottingham, both under ownership by the contractor developing the lot. Neither lot has ANY soil barrier or soil retention barriers. Both lots have significant red clay run off and some sort of oozing (fuel) running into the feed of the Beaver Creek in the green way park across the street. Please get this issue to the appropriate city agency so that corrective action can be taken to avoid any further spills into the road or water shed for the creek on the Parks green-way. I've other images showing the spill into the creek.

There is a short left turn lane to turn left onto Ridge Rd from inbound Wade. In spite of the short turn lane, the left arrow for turning onto Ridge seems too short to empty the turn lane of traffic. This frequently causes cars to back up into the travel lanes, creating a potentially dangerous situation.
Could someone evaluate the time this left turn arrow stays lit and see if it should be adjusted to stay on longer?
3001-3009 Farrior Road Raleigh, NC 27607, USA - GlenwoodThere is a group of kids that skateboard here almost every weekend. We have called the cops multiple times and there is apparently nothing to be done. We fear these kids, while they wear helmets are flying down this hill with limited vision of the giant SUVs that fly down Nottingham Rd., some of them coming from the local watering hole not to mention those on cell phones. These kids have had more than one close call and I can't believe they keep coming back. They are currently doing this in dusk/dark without reflectors. Additionally, the kids use curse words and homophobic language which does not promote a pleasant place to live. Can someone assist? Do we need a sign or speed bumps?
3071 Medlin Dr Raleigh, NC - Glenwood
This property, among other things, is a complete dump. Here are a list of the issues.
-Parking lot has no lines (It looks like they were spray painted by hand at one point)
-Parking lot has pot holes everywhere.
-Exterior of the building is dirty and unmaintained.
-Signage on the building is old and unmaintained.
-Parking lot is full of debris/trash/broken beer bottles
-Overall visual appearance looks rundown, dirty, and completely unmaintained.
The Notorious Underage Drinking Establishment, known as Crowley's.
-This bar has numorious violations for underage drinking. As recent as this past Wednesday. Reportedly 20+ underage drinkers were caught inside by ALE Agents.
-Their late night clientele races down Medlin drive and through My Neighborhood well above the posted 25 MPH posted speed limit
-Late night you can smell the drug usage coming from their back patio area. (we have friends that live feet away)
-Although the late night noise of their crowd has been contained...Slightly The real problem is that the City continues to allow this notorious underage drinking establishment to exsist. Now don't get me wrong. I went to college and yes I drank underage in bars. But the bar wasn't in a family neighborhood and feet from Million dollar homes. The families in this neighborhood do not deserve to have this in their backyard. The ugly and unmaintained building brings down our property value. As for the bar, well college kids need to stay on the college campus for their late night partying.
3600 Glenwood Avenue Raleigh, NC 27613, USA - GlenwoodThere is not enough time given to drivers turning left onto Womans Club. Every morning at 9 am I sit through two light cycles just to make it through. It's because the leftmost turn lane backs up for all the people going down to National Dr. Can't use the right most turn lane because that immediately goes to a parking lot.
