Persistent Garbage Along Lake Street

Is anyone else getting tired of the garbage and lack of cleanup around the Morgan L Station? The one block stretch between Morgan and Carpenter is constantly full of garbage, both in the street and on the sidewalk. Property owners in the area do not appear to notice or care about the appearance of the neighborhood. The parking lot at the northeast corner of Lake and Carpenter is particularly bad. I am embarrassed to take friends and family down this block. Does anyone know who is responsible for picking up this area?

  • pbsene Local Business Owner, Tired American

    Call 311 and give them an exact address. This is along my daily bicycle commute and it is hard to keep my head on a swivel when I am constantly dodging glass, diapers, tree branches, etc. I think it takes a critical mass of phone calls to get anything done.

    Dissecting What's New at McDonald's: It's Headquarters Building
    If you were alive in the 1970's, you probably remember the correct way to build a Big Mac for McDonald's is "two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions, on a sesame seed bun." But how do you construct a building for McDonald's?
