Interesting that the City of Thunder Bay has not spent one dollar on making the rec paths at the city’s premier tourist destination safe for park visitors. Once you stray away from the founatin/rink/restaurant area, the trails/paths are glare ice. You can see reflections in some of the photos.
This just underlines my suspicion that the City of Thunder Bay cannot afford to maintain the facility. Simple daily maintenance is ignored. $60 million spent and what is there to show for it? A sad third rate waterfront that is deteriorating right before our eyes.
I will be interesting to see just how much money is spent down there for the Ron McLean Show heading here in early January.
Members of the public enjoying the new fence. Did Manshield Construction take their old fence with them when it was fired by the private development consortium? Hmm…I wonder who is working on Tender 14…the $3.2 million no-bid contract awarded to Manshield Construction to finish Phase One of the Prince Arthur’s Landing project.
Every time a pedestrian gets mowed down by a Thunder Bay driver, the Thunder Bay Police Department is always at a loss to explain why or how it could have happened.
Yet, walk down to Marina Park any day and odds are you can find commercial vehicles parked on sidewalks, parked in no parking zones and parked adjacent to or directly on marked pedestrian crosswalks….all in the busiest area of the park. There is a nearby parking lot these vehicles could be using.
Do police care? No.
Tbaytel has taken up residence in the outside northbound lane of Water Street. The idle equipment remained parked in the middle of the lane all weekend. Why? No work was going on.
Too lazy to hook the two things up and take them away? You know….someone has to hitch them up to a couple of trucks and haul them somewhere….City of Thunder Bay has a maintenance yard on Front Street only a few minutes drive away. I am sure City Hall would not mind.
Instead, the lane remained closed all weekend. Why?
In fact, why is the equipment not removed each day? It just does not make sense to create hazardous situations on Thunder Bay streets this time of year. Longer nights and slippery conditions…
Water flowing off of a commercial property onto a city sidewalk. FLOWING! If/when the temperature drops, this will all turn to ice…..like this passed November.
I guess nobody cares…
