This really should cover the -- Whole City of GP -- but today I am absolutely appalled at the filth here.
The Log Hauling Trucks coming out of Canfor at the lights on 84th from the mill and even going into the mill from the log haul road, leave an absolutely muddy, gravelly mess on the roads and on the meridans. WE should not have to drive through this mess in the middle of the city. Don't say the money is tight, darn well raise the taxes on all these trucking businesses/companys so it covers the constant clean up after them.
Coming into Grande Prairie from all 4 directions this city is filthy. Clean the meridans more than once ( or not at all ) once a week, clean the main streets. Anyone coming to visit this city I am sure is disgusted with how dirty this city is and always has been.
No excuse to say: It is a farming community, logging community, oil/gas community. That is all ridiculous excuses. Can the city council not take --- more pride --- in keeping this city clean, rather than finding unnecessary things to do. The downtown all of it is filthy, main streets, back alleys.
Again, the trails systems are great, new sidewalks are great, but the curbs for wheelchair, strollers, bikes, are a mess, they are always filled with mud and water, why bother having them if one cannot go up and down them without getting dirty. IF the Mayor was to go for a walk on some of the trails he would actually see what the heck is going on. City council also.
Hoping that maybe one day this city will become a place we can tell our friends and family to come visit how nice it is here. I am embarrassed when company comes and they see the dirtiness here.
A picture to show is not needed, drive through the city and take a look. Not hard to miss.

When traveling north/south on 100th st, the wait times at the lights on 68th ave are excessive. I don't know if the weight sensors aren't working properly or if the lights run on a timer, but I will sit at a red light for minutes before it turns green, even when no traffic is moving on 68th ave. This is frustrating, and I've seen several people run the red lights after waiting for them to change for minutes.

With Charles Spencer opening, there is now a huge back up of northbound traffic leaving Country Club West and trying to turn left (west) onto 68th Avenue in the morning. This morning, northbound traffic was backed up past 66 Avenue. Due to so many people who are southbound on 100th street turning west onto 68th avenue, it makes it impossible for northbound traffic to turn west when the light is green. Only 1 or 2 left turning cars are making it through after the light turns red. With left turning traffic backed up so far, it is not possible for those turning right (eastbound) onto 68th or those trying to head north straight through the lights to get through either. I have driven to work using this intersection for 12 years (back when it was a 4 way stop) and have never seen more than 4-5 cars waiting at this set of lights in the morning. The first day it was an issue was Sept. 2 and has been each school day since. There really needs to be a left hand turn light for traffic heading north and south on 100th street at the 68th avenue intersection.

My concern is regarding the left hand turn onto 68th ave coming out of Country Club West. This is primarily during the time between 8am and 8:30 am weekday mornings. It is not only the issue of waiting up to 20 minutes for less than 10 vehicles to turn (on our average morning), but more importantly we have noticed that multiple vehicles are now attempting to turn on the yellow light. This will become increasingly dangerous when the intersection becomes icy this winter. There has not been an opportunity for us yet to make the left hand turn During the green light phase. Some motorists are going as far as going straight through the intersection and turning around in the Bear Creek Villas as to get back onto 100th southbound...so that they can make the right hand turn.
Is it possible to put a left turning arrow at this intersection for motorists leaving Country Club West onto 68th? I am hoping that this could potentially avoid collisions at this location this winter. Thank you for your time.

Just wondering if the snow is going into the yards of the houses leading up to the bulb at the end of the cul de sac or if all the snow from 80 avenue to the bulb will be piled in the cul de sac?

The parking lot is used by preschool-grade 4 children and parents and every day there is garbage, including broken glass, condoms, alcohol etc, The one curb has "@#$% this curb" spray painted on it. I have been told homeless people live there at night. This garbage is actually a danger if children (or anyone) were to touch it. Can it not only be cleaned but maybe find a way to keep those making it unsafe away. Thank you
There is no walking path or sidewalk between countryside north and cobblestone area along 92nd street. Huge increase in foot traffic with no where to walk but on the side of the road and there is no walk or street lights. Very dangerous.
