So the good folks at CCDC just finished making streetscape improvements down on Main Street between 11th and 10th. That would be where Mulligans is if you’re downtown challenged. There’s new brick pavers in the sidewalk, a bulbed out curb with a seating area, new garbage cans, bike racks, street lamps, trees, flowers, and today they are installing game tables and seating. And already – before the job is even finished you people have screwed it up.
Just after the flowers were planted, some dipweed drove over the new curb and right through the flowers. See dead plant, damaged irrigation system, and muddy tire track in the photo below:
And how the genius who accomplished this, actually accomplished this, I’d like to know. The bulb out is protected by parked cars:
But wait – there’s more. Skateboarders have already ruined the concrete walls. Word to the landscape architect: you should have thought of that. Now, however, the wall has to be redone on CCDC’s (ultimately the tax payer’s) nickel.
And you wonder why state leaders are reluctant to invest in infrastructure.
