Pittman Park was totally disrespect over this Labor Day weekend.
People drive in the park and pull up anywhere they want. It is a park people, not a parking lot. Food, clothing, trash, bottles, cans, paper plates, napkins, charcoal cans and containers were left everywhere.
Homeowners: This is where our tax money gets flushed down the drain. Where any citizen riding the neighborhood who wants to check out Pittsburgh to live will leave and not return. This leaves our community to people who are anti community.
SOLUTION: Dear City Council. Please consider the following: Residents and visitors must sign for a grill space. Place a REFUNDABLE $25 deposit to use the grill. If trash is left the $25 would not be refunded.
Place more garbage cans in the grilling area.
NO bottles of any kind in the park.
STOP PEOPLE FROM DRIVING IN THE PARK. Place a fine for pulling up on the grass. There is a parking or paved area in the park for cars. No one uses it because of broken glass.
Pittman Park is a terrific park. It is one of our communities common spaces. It needs to be respected. I urge residents to write to: Mayor Franklin, Council Person Winslow, Caesar Mitchell, Councilman at Large and the Parks Dept.
