Sidewalk & Curb Complaints

1107 N Indiana AVE

Case Date:
2/18/2017

Good afternoon, I am writing to report an issue with water drainage coming from the roofs of houses and dumping on to the sidewalk. Along N. Indiana Ave, many houses/apartments (owned by Elkins Apartments) have drainage downspouts that empty directly on to the sidewalk. This creates a hazard with constant freeze and thew during the winter months. I have personally felt unsafe walking down a sloped sidewalk, on what is pure ice during periods this winter. Indiana Ave. is a very high foot traffic area during winter months as fans walk to and from basketball games. From witnessing several people slip and fall on the ice, I feel like it is my duty as a citizen to report this issue to the city. Though we have been blessed this season with relatively mild temperatures, this does not overshadow the safety hazard created from the downspouts off many of these houses. This problem would ideally need to be handled quickly before the next cold spell of weather. Thank you. Best regards

2940-2998 Robins Bow

Case Date:

My neighbors at 2802 S Forrester, when they re-landscaped their property 10 or so years ago, arranged to have the flow of water from their downspouts released onto the sidewalk at the shared edge of our two lots, which causes a tremendous flow of water onto the sidewalk in front of my property. This deposits debris on my property and creates treacherous conditions in the fall when rain occurs when temperatures are near freezing. This has been an irritant to me since the re-landscaping was complete but only recently did I read section 12.04.020 of the municipal code which would seem to prohibit such a discharge of water. Could you send someone to investigate this situation? The water comes out of two green pipes where our two properties abut the sidewalk on Robins Bow. This week the problem is particularly clear because of all the rain.

In front of our home at 1314 S Grant there is a dip in the road that holds water for days and sometimes weeks after a rain. Last summer it served as enough standing water to be a bad mosquito breeding ground... would love for it to be patched such that it doesn't breed them again this year.

612–622 W Smith Ave

Lack of curb from Smith Ave where it boarders my property is leading to water run off as it runs down Jackson St to collect on the back of my property. My husband and have put in a lot of time cleaning up this area from previous owner over-growth. The soft ground, combined with lack of curb is causing the property to erode away and cars to run off the edge of the road causing Smith to deteriorate. The area is strip about 30 ft long. If something could be done about this or to change how people turn right of Jackson onto Smith it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much.

I have called several times over the last 3 years to report a dangerous curb on our street corner. Last summer a young child was injured when they hit the broken curb and fell. Please take care of this soon. The standing water each winter makes it more and more of a hazard as the cement freezes and thaws constantly there. Perhaps you could eliminate the standing water and prevent another deteriorated curb situation in the future. Your quick response would very much be appreciated. Thank you.

Neighbor has a new asphalt "ramp"to driveway blocking water runoff. I definitely understand the need for the ramp. However,could there be a way to open up a small channel through it? This photo of the standing water was taken on Sunday - 48 hours after the last rain. There was already a tendency for debris and muck to accumulate there before this. Thanks for any help.
