I took my daycare children to play up at Alcorn park today and it was disgusting! There is trash everywhere, someone vomited on the playground structure, the new black mat thing is being torn to shreds.... It is such a shame! We have been going to the playground fairly regularly (once a week) and have been watching it slowly decline. We were there on Saturday, and it wasn't this bad. It is pretty bad when kids don't want to play and ask to go back home.
i can't believe the town planners ok'd a childrens playground almost in the middle of a parking lot without a fence around it! If a child runs out in the parking lot they are DEAD. Have you ever seen or heard of senior citizens putting their car in what they think is reverse on to have put it in drive? Where will they end up? In the middle of the children, because of course there are handicap spaces right at the entrance of the playground. I will not bring my grandchildren and I am not alone in my thinking. It is a shame because it is a beautiful playground but done with no thought for safety.
This house continually has cars for sale in their yard. When one is sold, a few days later another one appears. Is this against any rules in either the historic district or the zoning laws for this residential area?

I reported the issue of parents who pick up students at the school parking in the designated fire lane. Reported this back in December. The issue was acknowledged by Enfield Police and they indicated it would be given special attention. Well, since then I have noticed no attention, surely not "special attention" to the problem. It's a safety hazard. Kids and parents, myself included, have to dodge between illegally parked cars daily. It seems like a straight forward issue to solve. Make it clear to parents, school staff etc. that a no parking sign in a fire zone means "NO PARKING". It happens every day, there are open spots for parent to park yet no one seems to care. Police, school staff, etc. If no parking in a fire zone can't be
enforced then why even have the signs up?
