Postcard from a friend
Sent in by a friend:
I live on Mary Street. I absolutely love it.
Recently, a friend who lives outside the Grove told me that she is moving, and I suggested that she should move into the Grove.
She is well aware of the beautiful foliage, the bay, and the really cool people. I tried to explain to her the sense of community that she would feel if she lived here.
Her response was that despite all of those great things, the Grove is a little messy. I asked what she meant by that and she mentioned the garbage cans and the trash piles all over the Grove, even in front of multi-million dollar homes.
She is surprised that a resident would keep their dumpsters in front of their property all week, even on non-pickup days. She also mentioned the trash piles with junk and furniture on the swale area.
She's right. Garbage cans should be hidden from view and trash should be placed out on Thursday. This would help improve the appearance of out beautiful environment.
This is a new series, I would like for all of you to send me your Coconut Grove observations (good or bad) and I'll run it as the Postcard From a Friend series. Any observation, long or short it good, if it's not good, please try not to use names of people or places. Email address is to the right, you can email your "postcard" there. Tell me whether you would like your name used or not. I like it better without names, but let me know anyway.
