Issues in Allied Gardens
I have lived in Allied Gardens for over 25 years and I would like to point out a couple of issues that I have noticed as I go for my morning walk through the neighborhood that have been going on for quite awhile, and they are:
What is the deal with the Allied Gardens Community Center parking lot? It got ripped up, fenced off and virtually nothing has been done there in over six months or more. I occasionally will see three workers milling around and gawking at the site with no apparent interest of completion of the work that was started long ago.
I also notice on a daily basis, as I walk through the Allied Gardens Park, that their is a sign attached to a gate dividing the park from the Lewis Jr. High School athletic field that clearly states “No dogs or pets allowed on the athletic field.” Lo and behold, nobody pays attention to that sign and these dog owners flagrantly march and frolic their mutts in, through and around the field whenever they please as if the rules do not apply to them.
On another note, there is a Genie Lift that seems to be abandoned in the parking lot next to the building where they have Alcoholics Anonymous meetings and the High Road Motorhome/Trailer sales. I wonder who pays for it to just sit there for over a half year?
Then finally, a large hunk of human feces right in front of the entrance to the Spirit of Halloween Store. (Which brings me to one more point. Where in the heck is a grocery store for the neighborhood? It has all become dumbed down and ludicrous.)
