Testing SeeClickFix.com Out
|September 3, 2008||Posted by jamie under Open Spaces||
Before the Kuleto restaurants opened in January of this year, there were all sorts of vehicles that would park up on the Embarcadero Pedestrian Promenade surrounding the construction area for Epic Roasthouse and Waterbar. One of the lightpoles was damaged during the construction period. The logical conclusion is that one of the trucks related to the restaurants’ construction most likely backed into the pole accidentally, bending it good.
It has been nearly a year since I first noticed the damaged pole, and I’m kinda wondering how long we’re going to see this hooptee’d up fix of the pole with two boards attempting to keep the pole from bending any further.
Earlier today, I had an opportunity to comment on the www.SeeClickFix.com web site for a television news story that Carolyn Tyler of San Francisco’s KGO-TV ABC Channel 7 put together. You can view the story on their web site if you click the second media item on this web page. I somehow managed to speak fairly clearly despite having just walked out of a dentist office at 450 Sutter with a numb upper mouth. Anyway …
This damaged lightpole in Rincon Park keeps bugging me. So, I’ve entered it into the SeeClickFix.com web site as an issue. While calling 311 should always be the first step, something tells me this is already on The Port’s radar – they may just need a gentle push to fix it (and hopefully collect payment from the Kuleto restaurants since it was almost certainly damaged by a vehicle related to the construction of those buildings last year).
We’ll see if this works or not …. 🙂 If you want this fixed too, click the “I want this fixed too!” link on the issue’s web page.
