    6891 4th Street South Saint Petersburg, Florida - Greater Pinellas Point Civic Association

    The bike lanes on both sides of 4th St. S. and Pinellas Point Dr., south of 45 Ave. S. have numerous obstructions and narrow to the point of making them hazardous and dangerous for cyclists.

    That section of road is very popular with cyclists. Every morning, for example, 30-50 cyclists use the road on a group ride. One of the most popular routes for recreational cyclists takes them along this road.

    I request that the lane be upgraded to meet minimum standards of 4 feet wide at all places. Debris needs to be swept and growth in the bike lane trimmed back.

    Photo attached documents one of the the problems. Others include debris; trees overgrown into the lane, widths as narrow as 32 inches; and standing water. I have sent Action Center those photos by email. I have a couple of dozen more to show that the same problems repeatedly along this route.

    Without upgrades and maintenance, cyclists must weave in and out of the bike lane to avoid hazards. In such cases, it is prudent for cyclists to use the full travel lane. However, many cars exceed the 35 mph speed limit, making it dangerous for cyclists on the road. St. Pete Police might want to monitor this road for speeders.

    I’ve included many photos to document the types of problems. I have others that will show that these problems are repeated along the route. These photos were taken after trash collection, meaning those bins in the lane were put there by the city trash collectors. That said, homeowners more often put their bins in the bike lane where we encounter them on morning rides.

    Tonys meat market plaza. How many residential apartments are allowed in that building? When I told the code officer there was at least one apartment in the front of the building he said he was unaware of that. I think zoning and Codes needs to give a closer look at this building and see what violations are occurring. It seems very odd to have residential living right alongside commercial businesses.

    Duke energy continues to use this as a parking lot for the patrons of the sugar room across the street even though they never got the required permits.

    The section of 4th St., South has become increasingly more populated by homeless near the Salvation Army. The people are out on the sidewalks and grassy areas during the day and overnight. The area for many blocks is very littered now. Panhandling is on the rise as well. I was approached by three different people during one visit to Wendy's. It's starting to feel very unsafe. One of the main concerns is that people are crossing the street day and night in the middle of the block. There is no warning to car drivers that these people are going to start crossing in the middle of the block particularly at night. Many are crossing very slowly with carts Cains Walkers or in wheelchairs. This is very concerning and a safety issue. This is also happening a little further south of 22nd Ave. on fourth Street south between the grocery mart and the gas station. Very dangerous for pedestrians and drivers. I have already reported this to nonemergency police as well as the community center in that district. They all suggested that I go through this channel to be heard. In the city work with the salvation army to come up with an innovative response to the needs of these people. Perhaps they can be located with in the property of salvation army and or be paid a small amount to collect litter in the area. Just an idea thank you, kim

    Personal effects, bedding, furniture and other rubbish are stored without the required city permit described in the city's own policy/ordinance (see http://www.stpete.org/community/homelessness/ordinances_and_laws.php). The city has been made aware of this persistent rubbish heap countless times thru countless channels of communication including the Mayor's Action Center, SPPD and direct contact with city councilpersons. Either:
    1) remove the illegally stored items pursuant to the terms of the ordinance, or,
    2) consider this an official Sunshine Law request to provide a detailed explanation for the city's complacency and/or dereliction of (its own stated) duty, or,
    3) provide proof positive that the person(s) storing items in the right of way have been issued the requisite permits that allow this blighted area to remain irreversibly blighted.

    Mayor, I am the owner of Nueva Cantina at 1625 4th Street South and I am writing to you over the negative impact, the homeless and pan handling situation has become. For my 1st year open our police force did a great job keeping them away from our business but in the last 6 months it has become epidemic. The biggest issue seems that they have chosen to hang out at the McDonald's, which is next to us on Paris Street. Anything you can do to help would be most appreciated.

    I realize the codes department is getting sick of giving Kevin Farrow violation for overgrowth… That's not really my problem! My problem is that he clearly bought this parcel just to make money and has no interest in our neighborhood. So even though you're sick of it please Codes give him yet another violation for overgrowth! Although it seems silly because the city is the one who has to keep mowing it since he will not respond to his notices. I have included a picture so that you can't tell me that it's not overgrown because most of the grass is 15 inches high some of it is over 2 feet high and I believe code says it can't be over 10 inches?
