  • Traffic Issue Archived
    7000 Doctor Martin Luther King Junior Street North Saint Petersburg, Florida - Meadowlawn Neighborhood Association
    Pedestrian crossing is very dangerous in low light. In the attached photo you can barely see the teen on the bike who is waiting for the light to change and for himself to get the walk signal from the PED. when I took the photo I had to lean forward in my vehicle as my A pillar blocked him from my view. as for the truck in front of me he would have had to look 90degs to his left to see the teen on the bike.
    I would be very easy to make the crossing a Protected PED. This would stop all traffic lanes while giving the "WALK" signal to the PED allowing Pedestrians to safely cross the street without vehicles trying to turn left on to MLK. After the PED clears then the standard ring can continue as normal.
    Doing this will make a dangerous PED crossing safe since the pole on the corner hides pedestrians for cars turning on to 70th and from cars turning left onto MLK. Even though the intersection is small the simplest Signal controller should be able to handle adding a Protected PED phase.
    So this could be done with little cost and may even save a life.

    More often than not, multiple boats are parked on the yard or in the driveway. Looks like a boatyard, not a residence.

    Canal is overgrown AGAIN. this is a constant problem!
    Once again We find the city is not maintaining its own property to the level it requires its citizens to maintain. Canal between lake and 77th ave has grass that does not comply with city codes that states grass may not be higher then 10".
    Can someone at the Mayor's Action committee please tell me why city property is not required to be maintained to the same level as citizens of St. Petersburg? If my yard looked this bad you would be fining me $500 per day untill it was corrected. maybe the salaries of the Mayor's Action committee should be docked that amount until the issue is corrected.. It would only be fair.
  • Pothole Archived
    6200 Martin Luther King Jr Street Saint Petersburg, Florida - Meadowlawn Neighborhood Association

    On 8/9/2016 my mother was driving on this right of way at 6200 Martin Luther King Jr street and hit a rain filled pothole. The result of this action blew her tire. I am contacting you regarding the replacement of the tire. We had to call AAA which kindly changed the tire to the spare doughnut tire. Now mind you my mother is elderly and lives on a fixed income. As of this time that I am writing you this email she has yet been able to pay the $100.00 for the new tire or the  $100.00 for the alignment. Because the city owns this property and has failed to maintain it properly, I am requesting that you kindly rectify the issue. I do have estimates for the repair work.

    I drove by the property yesterday to take more pictures of the pothole with it being dry and have noticed that you have since filled in the pothole since I started requesting information on it 8/10/2016. I do thank you for a job well done in fixing it. Now what can we do to fix my mothers issue?

    My mothers name is Candis Hoefer 

    My name is Rachel Sabillion you can reach me at boyscoutmommy@yahoo.com

  • 6819 13th Street North St. Petersburg, Florida - Meadowlawn Neighborhood Association
    There are speed humps on both 12th St N and 14th St N between 70th St N and Meadowlawn Dr N. Because of this, people use 13th St N to speed through to get to the main streets of our neighborhood. There are many kids on our street and we worry for their safety because of the speeding cars.

    Once again We find the city is not maintaining its own property to the level it requires its citizens to maintain. Canal between the lake at Medowlawn park and 77th Ave has grass that does not comply with city codes that states grass may not be higher then 10". furthermore trees are allowed to grow in the canal blocking waterway that could lead to flooding..

    Maybe Jeff the code enforcer should lose his job for not reporting this....

    This property is located in the AE flood zone and was completely renovated without the proper permits (I only see a window/door permit). Clearly the kitchen, bathrooms, flooring and much ore were all renovated with the proper flood evaluation or permits). It is now listed in MLS - see attached advertisement.
