    The alley way on the 220 side of Orange Blossom Catering needs a pedestrian cross walk. I asked several years ago. Response was the traffic light was close to this alley. Not acceptable answer. Notice four cross walks being installed on MLK. The catering has rented parking spaces from the Methodist church. Patrons of the event space must park and cross to the ballroom. Many have special needs and the walk to the traffic light is too far.

    I have been reporting this issue for well over a year. The drainage from the rains floods the curb for days. This photo was taken February 13th, 2019

    Reported this issue numerous times and NO RESOLUTION.
    It seems new sewer pipes were being fixed from 3rd and Central Ave to 2nd Street. Also, new construction of pipes on 34th Ave. N.E. at Vinoy Golf Course. Why are you ignoring 4th Street???
    Politics between US. 92 state road and entrance to city of St. Pete. Neither city or state wants to pay.

    I have reported the standing water at the curb on 4th Street numerous times and there is STILL NO RESOLUTION.
    The last report was June 14th, 2018. It seems new drainage is addressed on Central Ave. from 3rd Street to 2nd and also on 34th Ave NE. adjacent to Vinoy Golf Course. Why are you ignoring 4th Street? Politics between State owned street and City???

    I reported this issue yesterday and it has not been published. There is selective enforcement for ticketing vehicles in front of Orange Blossom Catering and my gallery which is a portion
    of the Orange Blossom building. My van was parked in the loading zone on Wednesday at about 3:30. It was raining so I was in the gallery preparing space to unload items. Also, waiting for the rain to stop. I received a ticket at 5:52. The sign does not specify a time limit. Big food and beverage trucks unload on 4th street that is in the line of traffic and never receive citations. Vans in the loading zone are off of the street and present no traffic issue. A car with a disabled license was parked in the 2 hour parking the same amount of time as my van. I understand that they receive an exemption, but that car was still in that spot the next morning at 10 AM. A motorcycle on the block beyond the alley is in a space 24/7.

    I reported and took a picture of the standing water in front of
    my Gallery part of the Orange Blossom building. This issue seems to be a political football between the city and the DOT.
    Neither party wants to spend the money to fix the antiquated pipe that runs under the sidewalk to the back alley. The picture I submitted was taken June 14, 2017. It is the same today. I am submitting this picture. When the new one uploads to my computer I will post. Same issue!!!! No RESOLUTION!!!

    Really saw a parking enforcement officer issuing a ticket at 9:41 PM when time for no ticket parking was 10:00 PM. This happened last Monday or Tuesday night on 3rd Ave between 1st and 2nd street behind SunDial theaters. Also, not favorable to all of the Valet parking on Beach Drive. Taking too many metered spaces away from the public for valet. Should have 2 or 3 spaces ONLY.

    There has been standing water at the curb for months.
    It seems there is dispute between the city and state as to
    who does the repair. The curb is also broken and sunken.
    This is a HEALTH HAZARD. i have talked to Mark Garcia and received calls from Broad Spectrum., but nothing has been
    DONE. i notice there is repair on the curb and sidewalk parkway on 2nd Avenue across from Palace Royal. Where are the priorities?
