The cities infrastructure is terrible. The parks and recreation department is stagnant and hasn’t changed much under the current leadership. I have friends from out of town who hate coming to our ballparks because the fields are terrible and in desperate need of upgrade and there is no shade. Our pool is undersized for our community and the parks are outdated but the flower garden is pretty. We offer nothing for young people here that’s why they work at Russell stovers and live elsewhere. The list goes on but basically if you want an expensive meal and some antiques we’ve got you covered everything else around the city is falling apart.

I would encourage you to continue to attract new businesses but also watch out for the ones that are here as well. I love Abilene.

I would like to see the city encourage and participate in the “big trash pick up” again...I think late spring is the best time for this as well, maybe a day in early May.

I would like to see more active strategies and planning for industries near the old Alco and Loves. I’d like to see more cooperation with interested new and expanding businesses so that we can encourage building the Highlands. Maybe having an advisor or risk management expert to consult with could help.

The intersection of 14th and Buckeye is so dangerous. I know there’s a plan coming down the line but I wish we could find a way to move faster on that, get sidewalks from AMS to Buckeye on the S side of the road, get a crosswalk that people obey (both at the MS to the apartments on the N side of 14th, and from the HS across Cedar.). Drivers don’t yield to pedestrians there. I also think 14th’s right hand W bound lanes on should be turn only lanes. Too often, people use those lanes to race cars headed west and in a lot of instances they cut off other drivers in a dangerous manner. This encourages a road rage atmosphere in the area where we have the largest number of children around. One death is too many and I think the city can improve on this atmosphere immediately by encouraging patrol officers to post in a highly visible place to encourage voluntary obedience by their presence alone. Changing the traffic flow and pedestrian options will take some time and most people understand that, but there are some things we can do in the mean time and I hope the city focuses on that as a priority.
