I have been threatened on Clear Creek trail before. It does not feel safe, especially when alone. I am an advocate for those unhoused but to have a camp with individuals experiencing significant instabilities next to a remote trail with little police presence is unsafe. There are connections between safety and those who are not stably housed, so location matters as to where camping should be allowed in a way that can be monitored better than the current "wild west out-of-sight approach" of the present City Administration. Strangers are more likely to be victims of crimes committed by homeless individuals than rates from housed perpetrators. https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/7641002/ Beyond the unhoused, in general a greater safety presence on trails would be appreciated. Call boxes for emergencies for instance and other options are fine beyond standard law enforcement. Even just public safety "parks patrol" non-LEO would honestly be even better than LEO.

I just wanted to write a thank you to everyone who responded to my request for help with need to get old utilities pole down in my backyard and repairs to ground cover/shrub, grass. Duke Energy came immediate this Monday to survey situation. AT&T took down the old pole this week, too. Now Duke Energy needs to return to fix grass/ground cover/shrub issue. They said they would and I have a call into them. Many thanks to all for the speedy work.

The city owns land near tri north at the round about and fails to keep the grass maintained. However the city also fines land owners for doing so. It shouldn't be ironic land owners and contractors get fined and the city are able. Please make it right by clearing the high grass and understanding a relationship of notice and engaging is a better solution. Just like residences are giving the city a warning. Thank you for taking your time to read.

National Train a Teacher Day is June 18th, 2022 , in the wake of the rash of school shootings it is apparent the need to petition and instruct city or county officials in regard to the duty to regulation of Miltia for the general common defense of the constitutional represented republic. Our Government is obligated & needs to demand the state team up with retraining Indiana Army National Guard etal and deploy them in our schools along with support from a in house JROTC Armed & trained dogs in schools and every teacher should be armed. The active stance where there should be Armed personal the officials are placating constructive treason and warrant crminal endangerment

Mayor Hamilton should resign immediately. His anti-police rhetoric has made the city unsafe with the weekend's shooting being the biggest evidence. Plus his open discrimination against political opponents is disgusting. Mayor Hamilton has shown his inability to effectively lead the city and should step down before he does more damage.

Follow-up Case #179422. "Good afternoon, sorry for the delay in response, I was unsure of who to send this type of case. Forwarding to Parking Services thank you" Two comments: 1) after several years and lots of scooter complaints (media, uReport, etc.) it's strange that it wasn't routine where to refer it 2) maybe that explains why not a single ticket has been for improperly parked scooters. Anyhow, I suggest that routine monitoring of sidewalks (downtown at least) be assigned to Parking Enforcement

Mayor Hamilton should resign before he wastes more of the cities money. 800k to plant trees in what the urban forester said is an unjust way. (Environmental justice isn't justice) Over 1000 people said they don't want to be part of Bloomington, and after living here two years I can see why, but mayor Hamilton thinks he knows best and has already filed a lawsuit against the state. I can't find the quote so I'll paraphrase "people are asking what's best for them when they question is really what's best for everyone." That is a truly disgusting thing for any politician to say. Mayor Hamilton doesn't know what's best for me, or my family, and he never will, so don't try to speak for us or tell us what we should be asking. Take the money from the lawsuit, the trees, his own undeserved salary that's 5 times the state average and use that money for infrastructure instead of selling bonds and raising taxes. Instead of 400k to hang skyline obscuring triangles from the new 4th street parking garage, you could have hired actual police officers. Quit giving the university sweetheart deals on property and WATER! Why do I pay so much more than the university for water? They get 9 figure gifts, while I struggle to make 5 figures. Quit wasting our money. Quit trying to exert your power over people. Just quit.
