    We need TWO new “one way exit only do not enter” signs here at post office parking lot (1st Ave exit side). I’ve seen several drivers enter from here, going the wrong way into parking.

    Not really about overgrown, this is about the lost opportunity to beautify our traffic circles WITHOUT blocking the views of what's behind them. Two ways, blocking either the architecture or the street behind. Shown is just one example of trying to fill a circle, but (if successful) would block the view to the Cade Museum — not very tourist friendly to do that. Some palms died, but a live oak was added right in the viewline, too. Instead of filling every circle with plant life, which blends in with backgrounds in other locations, please consider architectural shapes like obelisks, arches, columns, lighthouses, sculptures, etc to show drivers they need to slow down. Well lit at night as well. I think filling circles with only trees and bushes blends in with backgrounds sometimes, and new residents or tourists won't slow down in time. Since this is a new and cost related idea, perhaps local arts patrons or nearby businesses could sponsor the non-plant roundabout markers?

    Not sure if waste collection related but maybe. There's a LOT OF LITTER along Williston Rd. near this intersection. Maybe trash is flying out of garbage trucks when they turn there? Or, maybe recycle bins need lids so items don't blow out when windy or traffic flies by? Might put cameras on back on garbage trucks to see what's going on. Note: I saw no garbage trucks here, this may be post-pickup (check to see if today is pickup day on that block).

    The southern entrance to the Ridge apartment complex is difficult to access by eastbound drivers/cyclists/peds off SW 24th Ave. The median has no cutout and left-turn lane for eastbound traffic, forcing the public to go all the way down to the end of the median to make a very tight U-turn. Please cut out the median and add a center turn lane, thank you.

    For almost two months there's been this broken down fence section and destroyed traffic barricades by the basketball court-corner at the roundabout at SW 6th St and Depot Ave. Is the City even aware? Not sure but I think the park may need an additional gate access on that side, if none already exists. The damage may be vandalism by park patrons frustrated by the limited access points?

    Not really the issue. Instead this is about what looks like a missing stoplight in the right-only lane at SW 34th St at SW 2nd Ave (going north to turn toward UF). This could be dangerous because many new residents and visitors use that intersection, and may plow thru without stopping or turning (if they don't see the stoplights because a truck or bus is blocking the view). I think this right- only lane should have a stoplight and white LED arrow similar to SW 20th Ave at SW 34th St (going west).

    The approx. 300' part of Archer Road (eastbound to 23rd Terr) in front of Bojangles (but not as much on westbound side), has serious waves and dips. I've seen ambulances with patients and EMTs inside while bouncing like a boat on rough seas. There's also at least one wavy dip going westbound. Please do something so ambulances don't have to go thru that.

    Return of same problem but just moved around corner of park, an unkempt SUV with person laying on a picnic table. The debris on the SUV includes tires that could be mosquito bearing.

    Looks like a big future pothole or sinkhole, like before in the area near NW 8th Ave. Note a 2nd dip is nearby but not nearly as deep, yet. It's about 20' north of this dip.

    For 3-4 weeks this SUV and its owner(s) have been squatting at a city park. The debris on and around the SUV has only grown worse. This appears to be a dumping/homeless issue with the perps still there. Why is it still happening, since we have other public and charity resources for it?

    Last night while leaving the airport I almost struck a pedestrian crossing Waldo Rd in the dark. I noticed the lighting on that corridor is rather spotty, but there's lights over the bike trail. Could we improve lighting over both corridors perhaps installing tall "interstate exit" style floodlights over the corridor, to light both the bike trail and the vehicle lanes? The pedestrian I almost struck appeared to be an elderly homeless man and unaware of oncoming traffic.

    Pole is only one on street without a fixture. Located in front of 819 NW 10th Ave. Leaves dark gap in street where cars park by curb.

    NOTE: this is really about no streetlight fixture on a pole where every other pole has streetlights between NW 6th and 13th St. It's making a dark gap on a busy NW 10th Ave section where people park cars by the curb. Located in front of 819 NW 10th Ave.

    Missing section of sidewalk also where the bike lane ends — a double whammy! Located on N. Main Street across from Wendy's, near other businesses and busy intersection. City or whoever manages that street section should add sidewalk behind the curb if they don't want to sacrifice the trees.

    Panhandlers are dangerously crossing NE 12th Ave back and forth in front of traffic exiting on to Waldo Rd, to get donations from drivers they stop. I mean back and forth, not occasionally. This is very dangerous and illegal. Please post signs at that corner saying "NO PANHANDLING By City Code" and "NO LOITERING" on multiple locations. As well as other popular corners where panhandlers sit.
