Unkempt Bayfront

To the Editor:
The borough of Seashore Haven has made a bayfront spot at Taylor Avenue with benches and three pavilions. It is a wonderful venue, but very badly maintained. The clam/oyster shell topping addresses not only the floor, but also the sidewalks and pavilion areas. It has been that way all summer season, and it looks so uninviting and absolutely not in maintaining with what the mayor has created a person of her pet assignments – the improvement of parks and customer-helpful spots.
The shells are distribute in excess of the sidewalk and all along the bulkhead. Wherever is the streets division? They go there to empty trash containers. Couldn’t they bring alongside a pair of brooms and on a regular basis sweep the shells again from where by they are scattered and thoroughly clean up the walkways?
I have normally noticed folks sitting there, even on these neat fall times, having fun with the bay vistas, but it is so unwelcoming to see the deficiency of maintenance/upkeep in this area. There are also households with compact youngsters who regular the engage in region there who I am confident would value a nicely groomed place. The streets office unquestionably just cannot be that active in this off-season that they have not got time to shell out a early morning or afternoon at the bayfront and cleanse up the place.
And this shouldn’t be a a single-time work. The grooming of this location really should be an ongoing section of the streets section occupation description and work manifest, particularly in the summer time when residents and readers repeated the spot in good quantities. I was taught that if you hold soon after a undertaking and manage it on a frequent basis, the perform is that significantly simpler. Let’s choose satisfaction in our borough all 12 months ’round.
