The town needs more sidewalks and make sure the ones that are there the snow is remove in a certain amount of time or the property owner gets fined. I think in some places you get 24 hours. This would make the town safer to walk in the winter.

I'd like to know what group of morons from the district decided to cut Great Hollow MS's team website which allowed students to get the class notes from?! Is the school district going that down hill that it keeps cutting services to children?

Speeders on thru streets (Old Willits Path) at times it is worth you life getting out of our driveways!!!! Complain and all we get lip service from police and town officials. Thank you - MAD AS HELL.

Fix downtown. Get a master plan for the Township that goes beyond "spend as little money as possible". Businesses do not want to come to a Chamber or Township that has no strategy for commercial infrastructure. Re-assert the strength of the schools with a strong superintendent hire who will finally give direction on school consolidation, finalize the STA contract, present well-studied cost cutting measures and get test scores climbing again.

Downtown revitilization. Our downtowns are the 'face' of our community, affecting not only our perceived quality of life, but also our property values.

Make main street a place people WANT to go. Look at Huntington village as inspiration. And make the sidewalks safer to walk on and fix the crosswalks.
