Lets make 7 Hills Walkable

I believe the first step in making a community livable is to make it walkable. The next step is to make it easy to get around without a car with good transit and bike friendly roads. Check out Walkable cities.

  1. Next step in the “walkable” is placing a “reminder” post containing plastic bags and trash cans at the ends of the path. I’ve noticed those walking dogs on the path are not following through.

  2. Last night some children were viewed throwing limbs and wood across the fence into my back yard. If SHAG is encouraging or even paying these children to clean up the installed walkway, please consider teaching them to respect their elders (bone-on-bone arthritis both knees does not let me clean up after them). These may be the same children that “painted” playground equipment as they ran in that direction.

    Thanks

    • Please come to our next meeting in October. SHAG is just a group of neighbors like yourself that get together once a month to discuss issues and problems in the neighborhood and try to come up with solutions. Very much like a Facebook group except instead of posting messages everyone meets and discusses things face to face.

      • I attended once last year. I can neither sit, stand, or walk very far in current medical condition. Your meetings need to be transparent and published for all to see (including member names and vote counts (who voted for what).

  3. This group of neighbors are just bullies. I’ve received my second citation and a court date because I painted only the front of my ranch house. The first came just after my furnace broke and it took a long time to get it repaired. I’ve gotten estimates to paint the house; all of which I can’t afford on the small Social Security I get. Many of the painters said the job was too small. Some never showed up. I can’t sit, stand, or walk far with my knees this sever and my damaged hands don’t hold things properly anymore or I’d climb a ladder and paint it myself. Will SHAG be placated for my transgression as the cold will kill my knees going to court and I don’t know how they handle daily meds when your’re locked up. I’m 75 yrs old and wish you happy Thanksgiving!

  4. This is a perfect example of what’s not supposed to happen. I didn’t get involved with this group to cause financial hardship for Seniors on fixed incomes. Please email me your contact information and I will help you resolve this. Fred Conrad, fchog@fuse.net

    • You have me crying at the library where I go to get online, Thanks just for being a decent human being. Current status: I have a stack of estimates re. painting the house but very expensive. Some said the project wasn’t big enough. One said it would have to be repainted in two years (?). I can’t face this again. I’ve researched care and help for the elderly (I’m 75) and went yesterday to one titled CARE only to be told they had run out of funds and I don’t live in the communities they serve. I have a conference scheduled for Monday with a lawyer and expect to create an appointment with Officer Stine in which I’ll present the stack of paperwork to prove I’ve been trying. The citation came on the same day my furnace was red-tagged and I needed to save for repairs which were done Nov. 2018. However, the furnace was again cited the day before this cold snow and I had to use the savings to get a new one. Now I’m facing a $500 fine I can’t afford. I’ve lived here since the inception of this subdivision and the biggest problem with this citation is: I always painted the house because it’s my home and not one person asked me what circumstances had changed that brought about the current situation.
      This situation has caused me to meet some very nice people, though, and I count you as one even if I’m sitting in jail on Thanksgiving.

      • Wow, sound intense! I think you live just a couple of houses up from me on Mistyhill. I emailed Captain Stine letting him I am willing to help out by painting the house if it’s a small project. Not sure what needs painting but sounds fairly minor. It sounds similar to a violation I received about 10 years and I was able to knock it out in a weekend.
