The seniors at Deming Way would like to have the curbs leading to walkways turned into handicapped accessible ramps. They are having a difficult time stepping up onto the walkway. We will see if this takes the big time Housing authority forever to address.

Kevin what does your comments have to do with a police log, is that what you promised them to get them to join your appeal. Maybe you should stay on topic

Kevin, we are using formula funding with DHCD to have repair work done at Deming Way. It's been my wish for 3 yrs to have the entire place repaved and the sidewalks done. Unfortunately lack of money is the problem; feel free to fundraise for us for make a nice contribution by repaving for us!

...and garden gnomes. But seriously, Mailboxes are expensive & I believe tampering with one is a federal offense.
