REQUEST: Please remove the rock “Art” on Peregrine Dr.

Over the last few days, someone has been displaying his/her artistic talent and has set stones around some bends on Peregrine Dr.  While these stones are mysterious and intriguing, they are posing a hazard for a Peregrine Dr. resident.

Sue Terada lost her guide dog recently but is continuing to walk daily using a walking stick.  She has been walking in the area for years and is very familiar with the roads and terrain.  Sue walks on the edge of the pavement and, when she hears a vehicle (and believe me, she has GREAT hearing), she moves to her “safety zone”, which is the gravel shoulder. Today, she tripped over one of the stones and almost fell.

So, a message to the artist: 

Please remove the stones on the edge of the road but, if you want to focus your energy on something using stone, feel free to build an Inuksuk somewhere along the way…just not on the gravel shoulder…we would all love it!

Thanks,

Patti

    The rocks weren’t “art”, they were placed to keep people from driving on the gravel and kicking up gravel onto the road. RDOS swept our streets and did a great job, and not two days later that curve was virtually covered in gravel again. The gravel is a hazard to motorcycles, and bicycles. I apologize to Sue, I did not realize they would pose a tripping hazard.

      Ah, thanks for the reply, Brent. That’s where this website comes in…communicating with others about issues. So, maybe another solution is to post something asking folks not to cut the corners/drive on the gravel and to respect the bikers. To solve Sue’s issue, maybe you can use spray paint instead of the rocks?

      call me 495-4552 or reply to this comment and we can chat.
