Good afternoon Mr. Mayor.
I am hoping you can help me out with 2 ongoing issues on Finchley Blvd. I live on Shayas Rd. which is a cul de sac and leads into Finchley Blvd. With every rainfall, we have terrible flooding on the street. It is hard for pedestrians to walk without getting drenched, and our children waiting on the corner for their busses are getting soaked. It would seem to me that there is insufficient drainage on the block which in turn leads to high water levels.
The second issue is that cars are constantly parked on both sides of the road. In the morning, there can be a wait time of 20 minutes to get down the block, between the numerous school busses getting stuck waiting to get thru the cars. I would suggest that a “no parking” rule be instituted on one side of the road.
Thanks you for having a forum available to address issues in our town. Looking forward to a prompt response!
Thank you, Goldie
Response from Mayor Coles:
I am going to have our engineering Department look at the flooding issue and see what needs to be done to alleviate it. I am also going to ask Traffic & Safety to do a survey there and give us recommendations to help get things moving again.
