@robbump there is also a Kentucky Fried Chicken and a convenience store with food and dry cleaner within walking distance on State Street WITH CROSSWALKS. Rome wasn't built in one day, if it were, we woulda hired that contractor.

That does not address taking property (so close to the dorm) off tax rolls and expanding the park.

To credit the city, they HAVE painted TWO crosswalks on Erie west of State street. Care to wager on the compliance percentage? (both the foot and vehicle users)

SAVE LIBERTY PARK. (from those who don't even use it)
