Who is in charge of maintaining the conditions of Fossil Park? Why does the City Parks Dept not speak with City Sanitation and Codes Compliance Dept and determine a schedule for keeping this park in sanitary condition. It is well used, and pitifully ignored, except for the one city worker that picks up trash in rover. And, that is to be polite, a" half- way" job. He doesnt bother to get out of the rover and walk to pick up trash but just reaches his stick out of the rover and if it doesnt reach, then it doesn't get picked up. Leaves lots of litter around trash cans as he only feels he is there to change bags. I have spoken with neighbors, who have lived in the neighborhood for over 30 years and they can remember "when the park and creek were beautiful."
1. The city is in violation of their own compliance codes as follows: Vegetation is well over 6 inches on both creek banks and large ponds. It is now to a point that the vegetation is touching from one bank to the other on most of the areas where the creek borders the park; from Atwood, side alleys, and all the way to North Branch St Pete Library.
I have been told by city in phone conversation that they are responsible for maintaining the vegetation on the creek banks.
2. The stench is horrible, especially on hotter days; water is not moving, mosquitoes are breeding and it is a true public health hazard.
3. Creek bed and Pond dredging needs to be completed as there is litter everywhere and slime from years of city neglect. Again, the neighbors who have lived longest in the area say there used to be blue crab, turtles and other wildlife in the creek.
4. Creek banks and pond banks are caving in on sides and eroding into a silt pile. Also, a safety hazard as this neglect has caused erosion into side walk in park and alley on creek side.
5.Dying Palm Trees and other trees in desperate need of care. They have not been properly maintained. With the exception of some trees cut back to reach burned out park lights that were just installed ( after lights being out for months) and a small amount of one day tree maintenance ( very minimal) a few weeks ago.
I have never lived anywhere that a park and waterway surround are this neglected. The one photo does not begin to cover all the issues.

The lake in Fossil Park has garbage floating in it and needs to be cleaned up.
There is also a portion of ground along the sidewalk next to the lake that has caved-in and is a potential hazard (see image below).

6737 Laurel Street No Saint Petersburg, Florida - Fossil Park Neighborhood AssociationHello,
My name is Florence Miller. We own a home next door at 6727 Laurel Street N. St. Petersburg, FL 33702. Our neighbor has 2 very large oak trees that are diseased. We got a few quotes to have the limbs above our home removed, but we cannot afford them. We are very concerned because if those very large limbs fall, it is going to cause a lot of damage. If you have any questions, please contact me at 727-647-2093. I would appreciate any advise or assistance in this matter.
