Residents of Milam
951 N. Indian Creek Drive Clarkston, GA - Clarkston
Need assistance to get DeKalb County to repair fence & secure gate behind Clarkston Library on Indian Creek Drive. Vandals are coming through the gate & fence and entering the Clarkston Community Center….destroying vegetable gardens and other projects made by the local residents. This past week vandals destroyed a patch of carrots grown by some children!!
The Center locks all gate access to the field during the evenings, weekends & holidays, however, until this fence is secured, the problem will persist. The Clarkston Chief of Police highly recommends “razor wire” in this area to prevent future destruction of the fence.
If the department responsible for county property would like to meet with me to review and discuss, my email is email@example.com . Prompt attention to this matter would be greatly appreciated before the gardeners begin planting in early March.
PS: once the fences are repaired, the community residents will place warning signs on the gate & fence to discourage entrance.
3784 E Ponce De Leon Ave Clarkston, GA - Clarkston
The path on E Ponce de Leon from Milam Circle to I285 is extremely narrow. Naturally there is no sidewalk. For a year I have made numerous calls to 311 and Damen Johnson at Dekalb County Public Works without success. I am not requesting a sidewalk be installed, just grading to widen the dirt path to allow citizens a safe passage. By the way, I have confirmed that this road is the responsibility of DeKalb & not Georgia.
3714 E Ponce De Leon Clarkston, GA - Scottdale
The owner, Lynne Whitaker, of #3714 & #3724 E Ponce de Leon is not maintaining her rental properties. Several neighbors have contacted her about the violation, but she continues to ignore the problem.
Her properties are ghettos compared to the well kept surrounding homes on Verdi Way & Milam Circle, so there is no excuse for her neglect.
The attached picture is the sidewalk in front of #3714 which is unsafe for pedestrians. When it becomes impassable, area residents prune back which isn't right. Ms. Whitaker needs to maintain her own property like everyone else.
If DeKalb Code Enforcement could notify this woman of her violation, it would be greatly appreciated. This is my 2nd or 3rd request, so immediate action would be preferable. If an email to Mr. Kellum or Mr. Silver would be best to ensure quick action, please let me know.
If there is an Ambassador in our area, I will be glad to meet with them to discuss the situation.
1052 Milam Circle Clarkston, GA - Clarkston
There is obviously a tree branch pushing up the pavement in front of this house that is getting worse. I reported this problem last year or so and never received any response.
Some day an car/van/truck axle will break which may be a good lawsuit against the county.
As you can tell from the picture, it is almost as tall as a bottle of wine.
863 S Jolly Ave Clarkston, GA 30021 - Clarkston
Every day, hundreds of people walk in the roadway on this section of Jolly Ave.
There is no sidewalk for several hundred yards south of Rowland.
Without attention to pedestrian needs, someone will be killed by a vehicle here, if they have not already.
3827-3829 East Ponce De Leon Avenue Clarkston, Georgia - Clarkston
While travelling east on E. Ponce de Leon, at the entrance ramp from 285 - the traffic light is not synchronized at times.....specifically during rush hours. The light only permits 3-4 cars through so traffic backs up past Milam Circle.
Most of the time there are no cars coming from 285, so drivers get impatient and go through red light.
3705 Church St GA 30021 +/- I-285 EXIT ramp stop sign - Clarkston
both Exit & entrance off Church st./Path Foundation path (Decatur to Stone Mt.) onto/off I-285 needs "share the road" signage of some sort.
North-bound esp. Cars/trucks doing highway driving exiting sometimes have difficulty "seeing" slow moving cyclists at the stop sign. SHARE the ROAD near STOP sign at exit ramp may(or may not) help!
