There used to be a gate that opened pretty easily at both entrances. I know that it didn't keep the kids in 100% but as a parent it gave me a piece of mind. I would like to have those gates brought back.

I would like to see some of the alley's that are not paved and used by commercial vehicles (behind Class Appliance) paved and the roads that are not paved be paved.
How do I get speed bumps installed in my neighborhood. Especially near the bike trail exit to taylor lake park? People speed to fast and hitting a bicyclist is serious potential danger.
We are on McKay Creek near the bridge at Hickory and Rosemary Drs. We were informed that the sewage contaminated soil that is dug out of the creek on Hickory will be stored or dumped on the empty lot on Hickory Dr. Is this true? We are not in favour of this as we are sure it will smell bad. How long will the earth be there?
On 138th St (there are probably others as well), the Dead End sign cannot be read by drivers coming from the East or West due to the angle of the sign and the tree that grow in front of it. As a result cars and large trucks turn onto 138th, thinking it is a through street. This is particularly unfortunate for the trucks, as the cul de sac at the end is too small for them to easily maneuver and they have to pull onto resident's lawns and into driveways too small and thin for their trucks. Perhaps an unobscured V-shaped Dead End sign facing East and West at the corner of 138th St and 126th Ave, including a No Truck sign, would be helpful and greatly appreciated.
Monthly or quarterly gun safety class instructed by Largo Police Department with the attendance of parent/guardian. Although gun safety starts in the home (for those who choose to own guns) a class taught by the local Police Department would provide an opportunity for children/teens as well as the local community it have a positive interaction with local police while being reminded or taught for the first time gun safety related topics and remind parents/guardians of the importance of firearm security/safety both within the home and at the range.
Taylor lake park needs some tlc. Install a splash pad for kids. Or a dog park
This and other areas are very dangerous for left turning residents due to the heavy traffic during the rush hour times.
The soggy doggy day event is a great one and demonstrates there is very likely a market for it. I would pay $5 for an hour for my dog to go to such a place. It could have some tent shading for summertime and could mostly be shallow pools, sprinklers, and separate parts for big dogs (they could have a deeper pool) and little dogs. There are too many gators in the ponds around here for people to allow their water dogs to use them. Soggy Doggy Park could be a money maker!
Something really has to be done with the jay walkers in the Largo area. I drive up and down East\West Bay and Roosevelt every day and see blatant jay walking. Some cross the street, in traffic, making traffic slow down, and there would be a crosswalk just a few feet away. I saw a woman just yesterday walking across the street to a bus stop. Crossing where there wasn't a crosswalk, making traffic stop. Several people honked their horns and she gave them a middle finger. Unacceptable. This is dangerous behavior. Not only for motorist but for the person committing the offense. I am asking that the Largo PD step up their efforts and get the word out that if someone does this, you're going to get busted. Before long, everyone will realize that Largo doesn't tolerate this behavior and most people will stop. Get the word out then back up those words with action. The reason people do it is because there isn't much enforcement so people know they can get away with it. You will always have those that don't care. But at this rate, any change is good. The issue is out of control. Every-single-day I see them. Needs to stop. I guarantee that someone will get hit and killed if this isn't controlled. A 17 year old girl died today because she thought it was OK to not use a crosswalk.
