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.

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.
The magnitude of 50 mph+ speeders and cut through traffic on Adrian Avenue is beyond dangerous. We DO NOT see any extra patrols despite numerous requests from several residents. The obnoxious Boom Boom bass cars is downright a noise violation and after reading the statutes IS a reason to pull them over.
The "Stealth" radar which the PD will not tell us where is placed is overdue for another one, but at a different location than what they have been using. My neighbor and I have offered our properties which are in an appropriate location to place the device for an actual ACCURATE calculation of speed.
We have requested speed tables and were told there is no plan on installing any on Adrian Avenue or other nearby streets incurring the same issues. Enough is enough.
The street is pitch black at night, regardless of the LED bulb being installed on the one and only tree covered streetlight located about 6 houses down from our area. Without homeowner expensed lights on, it's literally pitch black. Walking is dangerous and overall given the number of break ins and burglaries.... DANGEROUS.
We've been asking for more streetlights and speed tables since 2011 and have been denied each time. The LPD has commented that streetlights are needed on Adrian Avenue. Perhaps the Commission, City Manager, and Engineers should take a ride down Adrian Ave on a Friday night, sit and stay a while to witness what happens on this Block. Only then will you see what you cannot seen to see.
The only thing I have encountered in SW Largo in the "City of Progress"; Progressing BACKWARDS. Crime is up, MVAs are up, open air drug deals continue and it's a drag strip at times. We need to see progress SOON. The city of Largo has treated SW Largo as a redheaded stepchild for too long.
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.
This and other areas are very dangerous for left turning residents due to the heavy traffic during the rush hour times.
I feel for the local business that have to deal with the loss of patrons because no one wants to turn into mud puddle to enter. The wear and tare on the vehicles from the poor road conditions. I had to have my front end aligned 3 times this year. So before we embark on new adventures I'd like to see some completed. Ulmerton has been under construction since 2005.
Compost whatever yard waste you can and return it to the earth as a healthy, organic fertilizer. You can also compost some household waste and save it from going to landfills. Investigate this fully so that you do it properly. Good composting practices saves you the cost of fertilizer. This also saves the city the cost of disposing of it. Everybody wins.
I've looked at the consultants map of the Medical area and see that much needed additional parking is proposed. Has the drainage issue been resolved - we get a lot of standing water at times which is hazardous. Cell phone reception could be much better - more carriers with stronger signals would be helpful. I do not see a helicopter landing pad at the hospital on the consultants map. The Green is a nice idea for waiting patients, hospital visitors and employees in the various Medical buildings.
A continuous moving stream for families to float down together in rented inter-tubes. I sent video of water parks and Hotels with such a facility "Ride"
