Crosswalk not marked other than barely noticeable sign. Regularly used by pedestrians to visit new restaurant and mercer students walking to/from class to avoid college street. Drivers don't slow down or notice the pedestrian crossing sign, instead they regularly exceed the speed limit and make crossing very scary during high traffic and at night.
The bathrooms by the playground were recently renovated (port-a-potties were provided while renovations were completed), which is awesome! But now they are locked with no port-a-potties or alternative restroom option until at least 12pm when the tennis center opens. When you have young kids and toilet-training toddlers at the park playing in the mornings, it would be great to have a restroom option!
There are no convenient crosswalks across Georgia Avenue, making it dangerous for students crossing to get to and from the Law School and for visitors going to Coleman Hill. Currently, drivers speed past these areas without watching for pedestrians. A crosswalk with ample signage would increase safety.
The speed table installed on Ingleside Avenue has been a great help in slowing traffic, but there is a big problem with drivers going around it on both sides. Is there any way to add something to either side that would deter this behavior?
I have asked for speed bumps to be installed at this location at the stop sign on Curry drive as well as a speed bump on Boulevard at that location. NO ONE stops at this sign and people speed up and down this hill all the time. A drunk driver coming UP the hill destroyed trees, Ga Power pole, his car, etc. last NIGHT. HE HAD TO BE GOING very FAST TO DO THE DAMAGE HE DID. That was going UP the hill also!!. They go faster down the hill. Someone is going to be seriously injured at the intersection if something is not done NOW!!!!! It is time for COMMON SENSE to correct this issue. We need speed bumps like the one at Ingliside Avenue on both streets since they also speed down BOULEVARD> You put up speed limit signs and said speed bumps were not warranted BUT people see the speed limit signs you put up telling them how fast they are going and they slow down before getting to them. DO SOMETHING.
We've requested a speed study and it hasn't happened! We are sick of the super speeders going through Shirley Hills. We need humps and a speed change pronto! People speed 20+ over speed limit DAILY. We have children who can't even safely cross into our own neighborhood park. The people of this neighborhood are willing to assist in making this happen! Please help us. Call me anytime for info 478-919-7232
Home appears to be abandoned. The yard's grass and shrubbery are grossly overgrown, full trash cart has been sitting in the front yard for months. Neighbors have stated they believe the abandoned and unmaintained pool in the backyard is responsible for the noticeable increase of mosquitos. I have left messages regarding these concerns on the owner's voicemail with no response. Please assist ASAP.
