In this section of town, the city owns a few alleyways that were once used for trash pickup purposes. Since the, the alleyways have been neglected and in need of fresh gravel. One such alleyway exists between S. Firestone & S. Dalton streets, and it turns into a mud hole after it rains. Please address this ASAP.

This dog barks at 1,3,5 am EVERY morning. I even witnessed a neighbor nearly getting her head bitten as she was watering some green trees along her property line. These owners are very irresponsible. The Rottweiler barks so LOUD that it wakes me up at night and my wife and I both are both sick and tired of the noisy dog. The dog barks in the afternoon while I try to take a nap and the barking is relentless. Also, possible animal abuse takes place here as I even saw them kicking the dog. Just unacceptable.

There is a constant problem of speeding coming down S. Chester and once crossing Garrison Blvd the semi-trailers and vehicles will pick up speed. There is a church on the corner, not to mention a day care on the left. It is non-stop 24/7 with this issue. 3 years ago I reported the problem to the State Hwy dept and it took them 1 year to contact me and state they would install a flashing speed limit sign only temporarily to be able to read the chip inside to make sure it was feasible to remain there. The sign stayed up for 30 days and cars/trucks began slowing down to the posted 35mph speed limit and then the sign was removed. After several weeks I was told the "chip" inside had been lost and that was the end of that. In the last 8 years there have been far too many accidents at this location and it needs to be addressed and a flashing speed limit sign installed. Not only will it save lives but also save houses.

A neighbor left their cat behind after they moved. Before that another neighbor left 3 Yorkies and kittens. One kitten wondered down to the end of my street and we took him in (he's an outside cat). The neighbor that left their cat behind my cat got her pregnant so we got him fixed. She is pregnant again and we took one kitten in because she got snake bit, one kitten died and the other 2 are going to a home together. I called Charlotte Humane Society they won't take her they said to take her to Animal Control so I called the Gaston Humane Society and they said that they couldn't help and to put flyers in my vets office or to take her to the Animal Control. If the Humane Society is supposed to help animals why won't they help me out and take her in. I don't understand why you see the Charlotte Humane Society on the WBTV/WCCB and they are either a stray or their owner has surrendered them but they won't help a homeless cat that is sweet and loving. They know what Animal Control will do and so do I. I would really appreciate your help!

My mom and I enjoy shopping at Belk's-Eastridge Mall in Gastonia. However, for the last few years she has been in a wheel chair due to medical complications and she is now on dialysis. The problem with taking her shopping in her wheel chair is there is no handicap button to push to access the doors into Belk's from the parking lot at any of the outside entrances. This makes it very difficult to get her inside the door of the store. We would appreciate if this could be installed to make the entrances for people in wheel chairs to access the Belk Department Store. Thank you for your assistance.

I live within walking distance of the pizza hut off South Chester Street. I have seen many people trying to pull out of the pizza hut parking lot and nearly get hit, and have seen several actually get hit, I have even had a close call coming from this parking lot. The problem is that you can not see weather traffic is coming or not, and 321 South is a very busy street. I feel this exit/entrance should be closed off and people should only be able to use one of the other exit/entrances into the parking lot.

Bojangles expanded their parking lot and access points to their parking lot. In doing so, two large trees were killed. On of the two trees has been steadily falling apart for the last several months. Limbs the size of small trees have been steadily falling into the entrance of Bojangles for weeks. Most of of the limbs have now fallen out of the tree. Not much left except for a towering monolith poised to fall into the bedroom of small children in a Habit for Humanity House.
The tree is located on an a lot adjacent to the expanded entrance to Bojangles. I am in the process of trying to purchase that lot. But I have checked into the expense of having the dead trees removed and it will cost over $3000.00 to have them dropped and removed.
I contacted the owner of the property, (Pearson Properties), that was developed for Bojangles. They informed me that Bojangles was in fact responsible for the development of the property. I contacted Bojangles real estate department. They informed me the contractor was responsible for the development and any collateral damages. The contractor then informed me they were not responsible since the tree was not on the property they developed.
The property the tree is located on has been seized by one of the banks holding a mortgage on the property. They were also informed of the potential hazards. They sent out a couple of untrained fellows to drop the two dead trees. After they started to cut one of the trees down. They realized quickly they were out of their league and stopped in mid cut. The tree has been notched and only needs a back cut or a strong wind to drop it in the direction of the Habitat for Humanity House. It may not be tall enough to reach the house and do substantial damage, but it will fall into the Bojangles right of way.
The City of Gastonia was made aware of the hazard as well. But because it is not on a city right of way and on private property, there is nothing they can do. The house on the property with the dead trees has already been cited by the city for multiple code violations, but that is the extent of the city's actions.
It is a typical pass the buck situation. But who will left holding the buck when this tree falls into this Habitat for Humanity House? The ground is over saturated. One more strong thunderstorm with strong winds could claim the life of a small child. All because no one could be held accountable.
I will try and upload some photos and videos in a second posting from my phone. If not uploaded I can be contacted at Tire Country, 704 866-9144.
Thanks for you interest in helping to resolve this death trap as soon as possible.
