798 71st Ave N Saint Petersburg, Florida - Fossil Park Neighborhood AssociationCity of St. Petersburg sanitation truck backs onto my property multiple time a week when servicing dumpster at Parkview condos, 800 71st ave n.
- problems caused:
1.) degradation of entry to my drive. Potholes created by said truck at entryway, which caused a fracture to my ankle, which I reported in 2016, .
result:No response ever received from City of St.. Pete.
2.) rude driver. Today, while tending my garden, city sanitation truck honked at me to get out of its way while backing onto my property !
1.) City of St. Pete should resurface/blade the alley way.
2.) Sanitation truck should cease & desist coming on my property, entry area to be resurfaced by city.
838 77th Ave N St. Petersburg, FL 33702, USA - Fossil Park Neighborhood AssociationThe alley between 76th and 77th between 8th and 9the is flooded one again there is at least 6 inches of standing water making it impossible for emergency or utility vehicles to access my home and the two behind me. NOT only is the alley flooded it has flooded or yards! in the past we would get a little flooding but ever since the alley was graded last summer it's been a nightmare! is not only a safety issue is a health issue since it's a mosquito breeding ground. my next step will be 8 on your side since the city refuses to take ownership of an issue they've made worse!

6934 Laurel Street N Saint Petersburg, Florida - Fossil Park Neighborhood AssociationHello, my name is Marie Wilson. We are neighbors of this facility. For the past 10 years, we have lived across the street from Palm Terrace and what once was a beautiful neighborhood, is now trashed by this facility , i would love to address the "outside" and surrounding grounds in which we have to deal with daily. We also do not get returned phone calls from Ron.the administrator .on numerous issues..i would love to discuss much needed issues, and make them public. We have tried to seek help from the city, and local authorities, but no luck.. maybe if we can make this a public matter, we will get much needed help. If there is anything you tbink you could help us with, please email me back. The list is long and i have pictures to share.. thank you Marie Wilson

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.
521 Atwood Ave N St. Petersburg, FL 33702, USA - Fossil Park Neighborhood AssociationOnce again those of us who actually live in Fossil Park can't even pull into our OWN driveways because the rehab lets these trucks block up the streets CONSTANTLY! This is beyond UNACCEPTABLE!

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).
465 1/2 74th Ave North Saint Petersburg, Florida - Fossil Park Neighborhood AssociationThere are several pot holes in the alley between 74th and 75th. One is directly in front of the only access to my drive way. when it rains (especially heavy rains) these pot holes of course fills with water and the one in front of my access I think contributes to the flooding of my yard area. This is the only direct access I have to my residence. Rains also tend to wash the gravel towards the end of the alley to 5th Street.
684 71st Ave N Saint Petersburg, Florida - Fossil Park Neighborhood AssociationThe alley between 7th Street N and 8th Street N; residents on 71st Ave N alley. One of the residents has blocked off the alley and is using it as part of the backyard. This neighborhood homes have driveways off the alley. It is also an access to cable and electric lines. Question is it legal?
