The vegetation on this corner is very dangerously overgrown. In order to pull out from the stop sign, it is necessary to inch out into almost the middle of the road. In the past few days I was nearly hit twice. This is an unacceptable hazzard. The residents of the home will watch drivers as they struggle to see and continue to water the overgrown mess. I know someone who almost hit a child on a bicycle recently. This has been reported before, and it was trimmed back. We are in Florida, folks. This stuff grows fast. This mess is a hazard, NOT beautification. It needs to go!
It seems to be ok to loiter and sleep at our major intersection in town, but don't try it on the beach where hardly anyone will see you. Pedestrians have to step over or around the people to cross the street and it appalls me as a resident that the police drive right past them at all hours of the day and don't get them to move along. I can't imagine what the tourists must think especially when they are walking around town with their children. The new bank on the corner must love it too. I'd like to take pride in my town again and not be ashamed to encourage my friends and family too come visit.
Peridot Palms apartments (new construction) built their downspout drain system to flood the walking/biking trail. Their system dumps collected rainwater onto a 2' wide grass strip that floods the trail with mud and lacks adequate drainage, leaving the trail slippery and disgusting days after rains have otherwise dried up.
Human feces and feces filled paper along fence line. Lot unkempt. Garbage and organic matter. No physical address due to vacant lot / parking lot.

This is what happens at 11th Ave NE and Cherry St even after a light rain. It has been like this for many months and the streets are always a wet mess. The townhouse construction on the 400 block of 11th Ave NE has left the street in horrible condition due to all the big trucks that were here during construction. They really damaged the street resulting in potholes that collect and hold water.
Property is vacant. Back door is torn off. Pool has a substantial amount of standing green water. Fence is down in back and front. Property could easily be occupied by vagrants or drug dealers. Children could fall into pool and drown.
58th St N ditches junction with Miles Creek at 33rd Ave N. Miles Creek flows westbound going under 66th St N curving northward into Joe's Creek just west of 66th St at 40th Ave N. Joe's Creek empties into Cross Bayou. Miles Creek banks are gradually sliding into creek and there is much foliage and trees holding it together. Slow movement of water flow contributes to neighborhood flooding. The City should consider converting Miles Creek to a concrete viaduct to carry 4-6 times the water and also to serve as more water holding potential. See sample photo.
So just behind the city pool, there is an area that constantly has a sewage smell. It's just as the sidewalk corners and it does seem to be an area that garbage builds up. Whenever I walk along the bay, this area has a horrable smells of raw sewage. Certainly something can be done to improve the cleanliness and smell of the area.
