Please remove trash, chairs, stumps, cigarette butts etc.. from this location at the Circle K exit and sidewalk. If the city/county allows this then it must clean it up. Very tired of putting in same requests. Can a supervisor check this area daily and complete cleanup. Can someone please confirm if this is city or county right of way??
Vagrants continue to litter the area under tree near Circle K exit. The public drinking and drugging goes on at this location despite numerous reports to GPD, Codes and City Commission. Isn't anyone listening?
The situation on NE 1 st is such that I can no longer enjoy my home on any day of the week. I am either confronted with loud drug dealers causing a disturbance, or the ever present smell of raw sewage in my yard from the Homeless encampment that is one with the drug dealers, or both. Gainesville, do something about this, I have had it. I have reported this umpteen times. Like I said, I have lived in a felonious porta let now for more than a year and a half. Done with this.
This house is being used as a drug den, flop pad, whatever the lingo is these day.. There is a mentally handicapped man why is supposed to be cared for by a care giver at this property but is forced to live in an armchair on the front porch. There is a constant flow of junkies coming and going from this address, people falling face first onto the sidewalk, people rolling around in the street screaming, people laying in the yard. Besides all of that this yard is overgrown and full of trash. It's disgusting that neighbors with kids have to live next to and witness this daily. I KNOW this has been called reported here and called in to GPD multiple times, why has nothing been done??
In the woods behind the Main St. post office and by Tom Petty Park, a homeless encampment is beginning to come back after being cleared out. 2 nights ago they had a four foot tall campfire. Fire Department was called by a neighbor, but it had burned down by the time they got there. Neighbor was told since they could not see it, they could not enter the property. Neighbor has also spoken with GPD (non-emergency number) about the unsafe conditions and partying going on and was told there was nothing they could do. This area needs attention, it is unsafe and a fire could break out from their campfires.
GNV311 is being used as a reporting tool primarily which is great, but you guys are missing the big picture when it comes to being "citizen-centered" and meeting the citizens where they are at. Every issue reported is closed and citizens are then forwarded to a phone number or the city's code enforcement internal ticketing system which has a horrible user experience. You can't even link to a specific issue in the Public Access site. It makes it very cumbersome to follow up on issues and keep the city accountable. You guys should leave issues open in GNV311 until they are resolved. You don't have to change any internal processes, but leave the tickets open and the information flowing. Please get this to Anthony Lyons and the folks at the top focused on Citizen Centered Gainesville.
The stop sign on the NE side of the intersection usually has a very helpful white stripe painted on the pavement next to it. Now, the line is almost totally invisible, and this is a blind intersection that needs a visible warning besides the sign.
Trash, public drinking/drugging at usual area on NE 16th Ave by Circle K exit. Have asked city/county to address problem on a regular basis as they allow this behavior of a few to affect all in neighborhood. Last we heard was that it is a "perplexing" situation.
Large homeless camp in woods to the south of Tom Petty Park. About 5 tents and trash/debris holding water and breeding mosquitoes are present. This location had a homeless camp on it approximately 1.5 years ago which was removed and cleaned up.
