City of Magee resident, Dot Nichols, appeared before the Board of Aldermen Tuesday night, September 15, 2020 concerning the condition of 11th Avenue.
The area Mrs.Nichols referred to is the street off 149 and running beside Johnny’s Auto. 11th Avenue also leads to the old Magee area in the county. “The increased traffic on this road is contributing to its deterioration,” stated Nichols.
Twenty nine residents of the area signed the petition requesting assistance from the board concerning the condition of the road as well as the debris on the sides of the road. 11th Avenue has large pot holes as well as areas that have been patched but are no longer serve their purpose.
Mrs. Nichols requested that “Do Not Litter” signs be place along the roadway.
Mrs. Nichols displayed a board showing pictures of the road and the problems associated with the road. The picture board was left with the Mayor.
The three minute time limit placed on public comments prevented Nichols from discussing all the concerns.
Mrs. Nichols lives in the Cypress Pointe Estates subdivision which is off 11th Avenue. Cypress Pointe Estates is an area that has and is being developed by Chris Lane.
Pictured are the request of the 11th Avenue residents and the names who signed the petition.
