We need to talk and be proactive about AFD and it’s impact on the 300 block of Main Street – Our Home. – BRUCE ERIKSEN PLACE


380 Key Street is our residence. It is a 8 story 38 unit apartment setting up and across the street @ # 375 Principal Avenue (The Ford Bldg.)  is a 76 unit condominium setting up. Equally have their principal entrances on the 300 block of major avenue.

We ought to have a clean up and non fettered access to our entrance way, our doorway stage at our home, and our avenue parking not often covered  with urine, feces , meals, coffee cups, foods containers, cardboard packing containers and rubbish baggage crammed with garbage left on our front door! This and those who try to eat and consume what the AFD palms out in the doorway, residents and TLP have to navigate and negotiate a way to simply occur and go from our individual front door… Our home windows, bike rack (aka toilette), and intercom program utilised as alfresco dinning and a put to dump espresso and foods containers.

Rats at night time are so prolific that they are nesting in the engines of automobiles on Key Avenue, parked over evening! All the ambulances, dump vehicles, fireplace vans, and buses are not a deterrent to the rats when the promise of routine foodstuff and drink left on the road and sidewalk  carries on, This speaks volumes as to the the scope of the situation.

Rats for the initially time have been observed in the again hallway where by our  recycling is. A surge of cockroaches there and in apartment models.

Another by item of the feeding plan is the proliferation of graffiti that is by in significant not abated or dealt with. Experiments have demonstrated that if not dealt with in a timely way it only serves to persuade some others to be a part of in the defacing of assets.

BEPRA gifted to AFD a stress washer because the amount of money of targeted traffic and filth generated from the targeted visitors and feeding plan. That tension washer grew legs and walked out on them around a yr ago… To our information it has not been replaced nor has there been any on a regular basis scheduled force washers contracted to clean up.

There are a couple of points I have read and spoken to others about the absence of a business dumpster distinctive to the use of AFD. There has to be a solution.

Also there is discuss that AFD is seeking to seek out a allow to established up concrete barricades on Major Street to build a closed in location for picnic tables…  I are unable to see this not staying a further encroachment of the peaceable pleasure of the the houses of the residents / tenants of Bruce Eriksen Place.

We need to have some discussions and a program of action. To keep on being silent any more time could be construed as our tacit settlement with the situation.
