Drainage or Runoff

1727 East Sanders First Avenue

Case Date:
11/5/2018

Hello, I am a property owner in the shadow creek subdivision and wish to file an anonymous complaint against the owner of the property at 1527 s andrew circle. I could not figure out how to manipulate your location map above so please ignore that address. I am building a house on the adjoining lot and am concerned about the serious flooding every time it rains. It has gotten worse since additional dirt has been added to the lot , and since i last reported the problem to the city last summer. Please see the picture attached and make a drive by for yourself to verify. It may overflow its banks tonight with the heavy rain that is predicted. It could flood my basement and the downhill neighbor potentially. But more important to the neighborhood and the city are the potentials for mosquitoes and even children or animals getting hurt in there. It should be an easy fix for the builder to rework the dirt he put in there to fill in the low spots and raise the grade for natural gravity drainage until he actually builds a house there. Thank you for your prompt attention to the issue . It seems to have been ignored after my previous complaint which was before the previous owner(developer ?) sold it. Thanks, Derk brewer

Street Lights

Case Date:
11/3/2018

We own a business at 14th and Walnut and often see horrible accidents at the corner of 14th and Walnut. We also see DAILY CLOSE CALLS with both pedestrians, cars/trucks and now certainly scooters! There are no stoplights between 17th and (I believe) 10th street. Coming down the hill from 10th street cars/trucks often RACE down the road right in front of us. Having a stoplight at the intersection I feel would reduce the number of speeding vehicles headed towards 17th street. Just this morning I saw someone walking across the street as two cars were speeding down Walnut. I don't know if one of them was distracted or not, but the person crossing the road nearly was hit and I am sure would have been killed. Thank you for looking into this.

Sidewalk & Curb Complaints

Case Date:
10/31/2018

The sidewalk along Winslow between Henderson and Picadilly, the south sidewalk next the Sherwood Greens, has two spots in need of repair. One portion of the sidewalk is sunk in and the other portion is crumbling. There are several people with mobility issues who use that sidewalk and also many runners use that sidewalk as well. The photos I am sharing are a year old so the problem has gotten worse. Thank you.

Parking Meters and Citations

103 N College AVE

Case Date:
10/31/2018

Meter A01 accepts some change without adding appropriate time to the meter. Normally I wouldn't care, but it ate a quarter of the funds entered shorting me 15 minutes which in turn landed me a parking ticket, so now I'm paying $20 for 10 minutes of time. Btw, you are apparently stealing Google Maps functionality (see screen capture showing "developer mode")

Excessive Growth

423 E Laurelwood CT

Case Date:
10/30/2018

Neighbor has allowed bushes in front yard to grow excessively, and sidewalk has not been cleared of large sticks, etc, forcing pedestrians to move off the sidewalk to pass by. Hate to complain about stuff like this but when you pay to be in an HOA its nice to be able to walk on your sidewalk (:

Traffic Suggestions

Case Date:
10/30/2018

We have repeatedly asked for a traffic signal at the corner of 14th and Walnut, because of the number of traffic and pedestrian accidents over many years. Neil Kopper, Project Engineer, told us that a traffic light was not going to happen, but he would get a pedestrian crossing, which we thought would come with flashing lights like at the corner of Rogers and 4th Street (a street crossing not in the center of town and with a lot less traffic than the main street, Walnut). However, all that was done was to paint a pedestrian crossing across Walnut at the corner of 14th and Walnut with white posts on the West side of Walnut, cutting into traffic. And, the pedestrian crosswalk was painted at the corner of College and 14th Street with white posts installed on both sides of the street making it extremely hard to make the corners. Especially as CVS's fence blocks the view from the North. Cars have to back up on 14th Street when a car wants to turn East from College. So, the very least the City of Bloomington can do to slow the downhill traffic in this area, without putting in a stop light, is to install some speed limit signs. There are NO speed limit traffic signs from 2nd Street all the way North to 17th Street. Cars drag race in excess of 40 to 60 mph there most every day, because it is downhill, not up hill like College. You have no stop lights from 10th Street to 17th Street. We would like a flashing speed limit sign that tells how fast you are going installed at 14th and Walnut. The type that is installed around schools. And, there is a Monroe County School bus stop at that corner with very young children getting on and off the bus. Also, there is a City bus that stops at the corner of 14th and Walnut. This all creates potential harm to children and bus passengers by the speeding cars. If no action is ever taken at 14th and Walnut, the City is potentially putting themselves into a law suit if someone gets killed or injured there because of the failure of the city to post the speed limit that they are required to go. The city has allowed high rise housing along the corridor of 10th to 17th street on Walnut, and on street parking to support this very high density area. This action, along with the bike lane, has narrowed the road and cars exceeding the speed limit have no way to avoid an accident. Our police department is so busy they do not have the opportunity to patrol this area on a regular basis for speeders. And, since we cannot get a traffic light installed, this request is the very least that can be done to make our city safer in this area.
