I wrote a note to Coun. Lorraine Zuleta querying why this seemingly fairly simple project was taking so long, and urging some pulling-out of fingers. No reply as yet. Is there some way in which we could mobilise visible impatience on the part of all local residents, to try to impart a sense of urgency to the powers that be?
when I was a student (a long long time ago...) some of us got fed up with waiting for the council to put in a zebra crossing at a place where one was quite obviously needed, so some bods went out in the night with some white paint and painted one on the road. The next day there was a constant procession of students backwards and forwards across the 'crossing', causing traffic chaos - definitely a mobilisation of visible impatience! It was not long until a real crossing was put there.
(I should point out, in the interests of health and safety, that the road concerned was a lot less busy than the Elephant is today)
