While I am happy to see some streets finally being repaved, I am questioning the criteria used to determine which streets were given priority. Has anyone taken a look at Coe Street?
Perhaps I am biased as I live on this street; however, this street is what people see when they come to town to go to Hedges-Boyer Park for the Heritage Festival, the annual Cross Country Carnivals, etc.
And what will everyone see when they travel Coe Street? Grass growing out of all of the cracks in the road. Yes, that is right. Take a drive down Coe Street and as you drive past Hedges Street, it becomes apparent the cracks are getting larger and, yup, that is green grass and those are weeds growing right in the middle of the street. A pretty sad sight for visitors to see a city that can't maintain even basic city services such as decent paved roads.
I would like to see the city post its current three-year plan for street maintenance/repaving. What are the criteria for determining priority of street paving? These plans should be posted in the paper and online so those who fund those plans - i.e., the community - can be made aware of those plans.
