Idea: paint murals

James OGara over 1 year ago

sponsored by the city, paint murals on walls in public spaces. set up a volunteer panel to vet art and artists. private property? get permission from owner. public property? much easier.

artists contribute time? materials paid for by - donations? public finds? grants? other?

First let me say that I do not work for Google or any of its affiliates or subsidiaries in anyway.

In this day and age we all know that internet is used for both business and entertainment. We also know what kind of grip cable companies have on us as residents in Pinellas County, i.e. Frontier Communications, Bright House, WOW, Sattelite TV, etc.

Why don't we bring in Google Fiber? They are currently talking to Tampa leaders right now and it is a great opportunity for us as one of the "Flagship" cities.

Additionally, this will add a competitor in our market and be a factor in helping us save money as consumers, possibly even create jobs if they require offices here.

I for one love having FiOS but let me tell you that the existing cable companies are gouging us. Google fiber offers 1000 mbps internet for $70 bucks a month...i pay $56 for 75 mpbs.

The residents and businesses will benefit from this in many other ways...please share to help make a change.

I have been a long time resident of Largo. One thing I have noticed is that the city has been going downhill in its appearance each year. I live on 138th Street and would like to know if the concrete wall on the south side of 126th Ave as you drive in from Indian Rocks Road can be repaired and painted. We tried to sell our house twice and both times the comments to our realtor mentioned that driving onto our street they didn't like the filthy look of that wall. I think the city is just looking very dirty in areas that can be cleaned up. Thank you.

Recall the local officials who DO NOT listen to the people therefore do not uphold their Oath of Office, as in the case of the proposed zip line and the ones on the Largo City Commission as well as the Mayor who totally discounted what the people said. Stop asking for the citizens to be involved if your not going to listen to a word they say, but only listen to those who agree with has already been planned (and behind the citizen's backs). "Their voices in the end amounted to zip" http://www.wtsp.com/news/local/controversial-zip-line-course-passed-by-city-commissioners/314777948

I was thinking, What about doing a Trunk sale there like they do in various locations...like half the parking lot for vendors and half for parking...you can just sell what you can fit in your vehicle...charge so much for each space....I just hate to see so much wasted space....could even donate some of the proceeds to various charities...

We need sidewalks, speed bumps, neighborhood watch signs, repaving of uneven pavement on 18th Avenue Southwest.

More Code Officers are needed. Neighborhoods are going downhill from lack of Code Enforcement.

I would like to submit a thought that people adhere to some common sense, if that is possible, and limit setting off fire works at the seemingly appropriate times. Like the early evening of July fourth. I have always been of the idea that we had or have a decent noise ordinance which kicked in around ten or ten thirty. Evidently in this insane day and age anything goes. You get into the month of July and off go the nightly fireworks, before the fourth, during and for night after night. What's with these mental midgets that want to hear explosions night after night and the ones in government that allow it. They even condone the lying of people to sign papers to the effect that they have a license to blow things up. Just wondering out loud.

I have noticed many pedestrians that walk and run along the streets when it’s dark outside are very hard to spot. I think one solution to make the situation safer is for the city of Largo to provide reflective safety vests for purchase at convenient locations, such as the recreation centers and city park events. The reflective vests can be purchased in bulk for under $3 and lower (at http://www.hivissupply.com/gss-safety-non-ansi-safety-vest.html), and could be sold for a bit more, in order to be affordable for all that need them. This could be advertised in multiple places, such as in city buildings, and on the city’s social media pages.
