Issues going on in the Neighborhood: We hear you!

20 Jul 2020 12:03 PM | Travis Oliver (Administrator)

There has been so much happening in our neighborhood and our city lately, it's getting harder to keep track.  I am happy to report that more restaurants and retail establishments are opening daily, giving a real semblance of activity to our previously bare sidewalks.  However, COVID and protests continue, there are changes in the city government, fireworks exploding at all hours, and an abundance of motorcycles revving up their engines in the early morning. We want you to know that we are repeatedly bringing these quality of life matters to our government representatives and will report back to you.  But there are some things you can do to help.

COVID - cases are rising. Yesterday, Gov. Wolf imposed new restrictions on the state. We can still play our part to flatten the curve by wearing a mask or facial covering and practice social distancing. Like Gov. Wolf stated, "we will not become Florida."

Outdoor dining - restaurants are supposed to ensure all patrons are seated at tables. No loitering is allowed. If you see someone loitering, call 3-1-1.

Noise complaints - the fireworks continue to be a nuisance. There have been over 8500 calls reported to 9-1-1 since Memorial Day. Keep reporting them to the police. Also, CCRA received a few reports on motorcycle noises in the early morning hours. We have contacted the 9th District Police Dept. and we advise you to do the same. We will let you know of any updates on our website, enewsletter, and social media outlets.

Let's face it, 2020 has been terrible, but we need to stay strong. We have weathered many storms, and although this year seems like a never-ending Category 5 hurricane, we'll get thought it. We are here for you.
