Vagrants with large black dog are living under City Pavilion during the day and on a disable 1/2 sunken sailboat 10ft off the banks of Grandview at night. Vagrant keeps rowboat tied to boat ramp to navigate him & his dog back & forth. He is storing chairs, cooler, jugs of water under city pavilion like it's his living room. He is defecating at the boat ramp and drinking alcohol in open container all day long on while sitting on his furniture under pavilion. Dog get tied to pavilion post the entire day! Please REMOVE THE SAILBOAT from the lagoon and REMOVE the homeless person from living @ our city park!
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.
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.
Standing water is a constant issue at the corner of 17th Ave NE and Beach Drive NE. For the past few days water has been draining from a construction site. Since there is nowhere for it to drain, it has pooled and is stagnant for several blocks. Mold (?) is now growing on the bricks and the deep and ever-growing puddle of water is 1/2 way into the street.
I reported this last year this year and since AER now Camden pier district apartments were constructed this post always gets close out saying it's a duplicate I want to know if it is a duplicate what is being done with it because this is going on for two years now.
This issue hits on a couple issues. Drainage, pot holes, road surface missing and mosquito control. The water always pools in this area and stays for days/weeks causing pot holes to form along with mosquito breeding.
If St Pete doesn't do something about the nonstop extensive garbage along 275 especially around the downtown exits and the horrible recycling eyesore it's going to be reported to the right people at the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, News Channels, Board of Health and anywhere else because it's literally disgusting seeing it all especially getting down the storm drains and piled up on the lids. This Mayor is ridiculous and hires the laziest people in the city. Landscapers, who over spray weed kill an kill all the existing trees along 275, the mowers who mow like a bad hair cut the city is a mess! ...except Beach Drive of course. I even have visitors from out of state that comment on all the garbage and sad looking roads here. It's nonsense! St Pete!!! Stop polluting our waters! Get with it already!
