  • ptgrp E. of Sheridan, Not FGFM's sockpuppet

    I find everyone to be friendly at this location and really like Chipotle as fast food chains go... but is a 4.5-fail-per-8-inspection rate uncommon? How many during what period warrants a closure?

  • ptgrp E. of Sheridan, Not FGFM's sockpuppet

    (cont'd)...It seems kind of high to my untrained eye. I'll just say that Chipotle is known for taking pride, chain-wide, in the freshness/crispness/deep-greenness of its lettuce. Here, however, I've found it to be a bit wilttier than the norm...

Why is there a Stop Sign at Arthur and Glenwood?

Two years ago the City installed a Stop sign at Arthur and Glenwood. Four years ago the City removed the crosswalk at this location. There is no need for this sign. The only beneficiary of this sign are Cars coming West out of an alley. When the stop sign was installed no painted stop bars were installed as required by Federal Highway standards. As a result compliance with this sign is next to nothing thus creating even greater safety concerns

  • There have been studies done that show having Stop Signs installed too close together lead to less compliance thus creating safety hazards for walkers, bikers and other vehicles.

  • d3 NOH

    willis, it's logical that it would bring up election talk, the current administration in office is putting everyone on a road diet by trying to slow traffic down purposely on major corridors, and diversion to side streets is the #1 issue that is going to happen first and foremost as a result of that. If you don't agree with this, then don't vote for the current elected officials whom seem to have offered up no other hope.
