It's getting to be that time of year. All the Runs and Festivals on the Waterfront, Spring Time. Just want to thank one and all for the traffic congestion, the kind folk that never come into town,the boys in blue that keep people safe. Thank you. But maybe the city and organizations that put on these events could have some consideration for the people that call Downtown home. Shuttle bus service, keep several streets open to allow for passage inside the Loop of 405 and 5, not the maze of streets one has to take to get around the races. I know they post the route and road closures, well not everyone sees these notices. So the people that work or live Downtown suffer every time. The City could schedule road work better, Companies that have to deliver stuff, pick up trash dumpsters could do better the list goes on.
