Not very pretty for our winter visitors
A friend sent these photos from over the weekend with the note: "We pay the highest taxes in the County and this is the best they can do with our streets? Thousands of peoples are flocking to Coconut Grove this weekend for the Arts Festival. Many are tourists in from the Northeast. This is embarrassing. Our Village should be looking its best: clean and neat like a kid attending his first day of school."
She's right. I think the problem is that the sidewalks that were redone (Commodore, Florida Avenue) were city streets and Main Highway is a County Street, so while the BID and City took care of the locally owned streets, the county's solution is to dump tar into the cracks. These photos were taken on Main Highway near Panther Coffee. It's even worse across the street where the big tree takes up so much of the sidewalk near the taco place and near Florentine Plaza, in front of a few of the stores. Same thing - large tree trunks with tar thrown in to fix something or other.
