7202 106 Street Grande Prairie, Alberta
The snow needs to be removed from the sidewalk that connects 106 Street and Knowledge Way near the Eastlink Centre. This path was never cleared last winter and in fact was piled with snow and blocked once roads were plowed. This is a major walkway for our neighborhood to access the Eastlink Centre and now Charles Spencer High School as well. It needs to be cleared and kept clear.
8321 Mission Heights Drive Grande Prairie, Alberta
Trying to leave Mission Heights on Mission Heights Drive at the lights, they NEGLECTED and always NEGLECT to remove the little windrow of ploughed snow. It is IMPOSSIBLE for it to be 2 lanes there -- one to turn left onto 84th avenue and one for turning right onto 84th avenue. It is ALWAYS VERY ICY as it is a little bit of a decline on the right hand lane. Starting at the entrance to the community church parking lot/bus stop at the church ( going NORTH BOUND) .
Also finding ALL TURNING LANES very rarely sanded/salted throughout the winter. Trying to turn at intersections is scary enough and not having being sanded. IF there is a bit of an INCLINE &/or DECLINE very scary.
As for SNOWREMOVAL by HOMEOWNERS, time to start actually fining them not a warning, that does not obviously work. Finding living in a SCHOOL ZONE AREA the sidewalks should ALWAYS BE CLEAN.
With clickfix this winter is going be pretty busy with snow removal.
Also the downtown core whether there is a business/parking lot/ empty building --- why are their sidewalks not cleaned. It is an ongoing battle just as streetsweeping and cleaning the sidewalks clean of dirt / garbage.
Thanks for listening.

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.

Two or three days ago a street sweeper dumped a big pile of dirt and gravel on the street by the curb. Yesterday a street sweeper cleaned the entire street, but missed the big pile that was dumped earlier, due to a vehicle being parked on it. I know the street sweeper can't sweep where there is a vehicle, but here are a few suggestions that could be implemented to prevent this problem.
1. Don't dump dirt and gravel on the street
2. If you're going to dump, clean it up right away, or put out a barrier or sign to prevent people from parking there
3. Put out signs in the neighbourhood warning people not to park on the street, such as is done during snow removal
4. Ticket and/or tow vehicles that park in areas that are marked for cleaning
Since we are beyond prevention in this case, perhaps the city would consider sending somebody back to clean up this mess. If they can't come right away, then perhaps they could just put up a barrier for now and then send the sweeper when it's convenient.
I don't know if the sweeper that was here in this case was working for or in partnership with the crew that was contracted to repair the sidewalks on the street.
A little dirt and gravel on any street is normal, but this is a big pile, and was left by the sweeper. It needs to be dealt with.

Busters Pizza employees throwing full size non broken down cardboard into the garbage bin causing it to overflow when a recycle bin is next to it. Then when the garbage bin in overflowing, They leave the garbage on the ground. Ongoing issues for close to 2 years. Buster Pizza head office said they are not part of the franchise and told me to call the store directly. Employee was very rude upon making complaint. Garbage blow everywhere, Peoples backyards are here.

I understand that Village Green is a privately owned property however, the city should be able to order them to clean up the garbage on their property. Considering Grande Prairie just went through a city scrub, Village Green should have participated and cleaned up their property of the garbage. It's a disgusting mess that needs to be dealt with, the area looks horrible.
On The Corner Of 88 Avenue And 98 Street (4 Way Stop) Grande Prairie, Alberta
On the corner of 88 Avenue and 98 Street (4 way stop) there are numerous garbage bags that have been dumped (right behind a white fence). Not sure what type of garbage, but I thought I would let you know since children will be returning to school soon in that area.
