9906 96 Ave Grande Prairie, Alberta
The tenants at this address keep stockpiling garbage and old kitchen equipment in the alley/backyard. This mess has been like this since summer started. The tenants are owners/employees of Taj Grill and Liquor For Less as they have a van with the decals in there driveway. I have sent an email to both companies 2 months ago but nothing has been cleaned. Along with the wind, there are homeless people picking thru the garbage making a mess.
9926 100 Avenue Grande Prairie, Alberta
Not sure of the exact address
in front of the old GAIETY THEATRE which is now a parking
lot, along that whole front of the parking lot, and around the bench there for people to sit on, is filled with garbage. It is absolutely disgusting to walk by. This is right downtown main street where tourists and shoppers walk by. How uninviting this is. When will this city take some pride on this place. I have yet to see any street sweepers/water trucks flushing down the streets and walkways downtown. I stopped a by-law fellow ( who kindly passed on the buck to Parks? Dept?) Why, when it is the downtown core and should he/she/they not be looking out for the grunge around town and reporting?
Plesase have this cleaned up. It too is a disgrace.
Makes me wonder with the BIKE TOUR RACE going right through downtown, will they even bother to clean the streets for the safety of the cyclists? Or will that be the one and only time they do clean it up.

Mission Heights Drive HAS YET to be cleaned up of the asphalt that was dumped from past Michealis Boulevard to 84th avenue on the EAST SIDE of the road. This is not acceptable. I not need to say....our taxes have been paid. You however have not complied with the cleaning job yet.
I have noticed also that when the street sweeper does occasionally go by, it always leaves a trail of dirt behind him, They could always start on the EAST SIDE of the road while they have an empty machine and is not over full.
AND................yes 84th avenue is yet to be cleaned of the rocks and dirt from Canfor Log compound. The meridan has big rocks sitting on them amongs the rest of the big gravel.

90st exiting Cobblestone onto 100ave is VERY icy and VERY dangerous, hence why the stop sign was knocked down days ago. Failure to be able to stop before 100ave could result skidding onto 100ave and being t-boned by east and west traffic. Please remove snow and icy ASAP. Graveling doesn't help either......

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.
