In under two hours, a street sweeper has swept Arrowhead Drive twice! My living room window overlooks Arrowhead and even before I could see it, I could hear it coming down the road. I looked at the road and it has been scoured clean by the rain and wind. It has no dirt/dust and no leaves (and no curbs to collect such things). That it came by a second time was ludicrous. It took the same route, turning around at the bottom of the street about one block away. And it’s Saturday, so I assume this is overtime.
I know the city was trying to thrust a Cadillac version of stormwater management upon its citizens, and this appears to be the result. What a waste of my money.
And there is one other stormwater feature that puzzles those of us in the neighborhood … the eyesore of pallets of sandbags at about the highest point in the city! What’s that about? And, if there is some reasonable explanation for siting the sandbags in the vicinity, couldn’t you work out something with the nearby Arrowhead Elementary School for storage so that it wasn’t such a blight for six months of the year?
