that's 2 years in a row someone has slammed into the bench on 18, maybe we could move it a little farther from the road to keep that from happening every time someone decides to go GTA through waterworks...or plant a large boulder or 3 to dissuade any more property damage whether intentional or not.
If they hit the boulder(s), then they'll of course have their own problems = property damage to deal with. Too bad!
Great idea, but the city might believe it is better off financially to replace a bench than to purchase boulders. That's government. They have a hard time looking long term when they are there for a short term.
The city wont mark trees for removal. That is admitting there is a problem with the tree. if the tree comes down on it's own and some one gets hurt the city is liable. that is info from a P&R superintendent. Is it the same reason they wont put a barrier there?
