Today the sign on the Carrollton Ave neutral ground at Pritchard Place went up indicating that we will be getting sidewalk and street repairs in our area very soon. We are grateful and happy about this progress.

Unfortunately the placement of the sign is very dangerous. It blocks:
- the pedestrian's view of traffic coming down Carrollton toward Claiborne
- the driver's view of the pedestrians as they wait at the neutral ground to cross Carrollton.
- the driver's view of cars that are turning from Carrollton onto Pritchard Place.
This increases the chances that accidents will happen as this busy stretch of roadway

Please see these photos.

We request that the sign be moved further down the Carrolton neutral ground toward Earhart to avoid creating dangerous blind spots that can lead to accidents.
