18 Wheelers In the West End

In all fairness, nothing to do with the development as far as I'm aware, but an example of what the city can't do right now ... enforce no trucks in the West End.

This is a picture of Koehler and Thompson Street this morning at about 730am. This truck took about 5 minutes to try to get through. And yes, that is a CoH Public Works truck parked there. He was putting up a No Parking Sign.

The no parking signs are a new feature in the West End. They typically stay up for an average of 3-5 days before they are torn down. Tow Trucks have been coming through the neighborhoods once the signs go up, they tow for a few days, then people tear the signs down and say they didn't know there was no parking there. This is the 3rd time that signs have been put up in this location in the past 2-3 months.

Patterson is presently a 'No Through Trucks' zone, albeit again not enforceable so far. There is still no plan for any improvements to my street ... my street being the one that the Wal-Mart is supposed to be built on.
