Nominate Street Segments
"Most In Need Of Repair"
Ted's Candidate For
"Street Most In Need of Repair"
have not yet seen a city plan or priority list for street sections to be repaired
(3.3 miles of overlay ...
following the April sales tax vote approval and July 1st start of increased tax
collection). As usual I'm not not above sharing my personal opinion but will also
welcome a few other "worthy" candidates from cvilleok.com viewers. My
candidate street section is Maple just west of 19th Street leading to the entrance
to the football field and in front of Miracles of Faith Church. If there is no
other traffic you can avoid the numerous potholes by changing lanes a few times
but it sure would be nice to have this stretch of road more vehicle friendly before
the first home varsity football game (Sept. 11th). And there are plenty of other
activities before then including a scrimmage & "Meet The Cards",

Thanks so much for posting our street. I was told that when they finished Broadway that our street would be done before the county workers left the city. Instead they repaved Main and left town.
I have not talked with Mayor Sallee since then as to what reason there was for not fixing our street. It was destroyed when the football field was done, but it was not done right in the first place.
again, Pastor Jim
I totally agree with you. That street is awful. You would think that a street with so much traffic on it would get taken care of. It is embarrassing to know that people have to travel on such a sorry road to get to our nice football stadium.

I have to agree with Pastor Jim. That street is in terrible condition, and it is right next to our very nicely remodeled stadium. It looks like that road should have been repaired long ago. I'm thinking its the one to pick. -- Daniel Mansfield
|Ted Note (7/17): How about some other streets in need of repair?|
|Ted Note (7/20): I've been surprised no one has offered a 2nd place or challenger. I expect to learn more about the city's plan as the "street overlay" is a topic on the agenda for the city commission at 7pm July 20th.|
I noticed that a city crew had been out today making some small patches with fresh asphalt. I didn't have a chance to see where all they might have gone but did see this patch at 14th & Center by the Middle School. -- Ted 7/20/2009
update ... I did see that the patch work did make some improvement on the Maple
"worst street" above. -- Ted -- I'll have a bit more to say on street
plans when I complete the city commission page sometime tomorrow. -- Ted
