City may pave pothole-filled road
Driving through the potholes at Sunnyside Heights is not an enjoyable experience for motorists.
Sunnyside Heights could be the next pothole-riddled street paved by the city if the decision is made to adopt what is currently privately owned property. Sunnyside Heights, much like Omni Drive, was constructed by private developers on private property many years ago and is currently owned by property owners. The road’s condition has been allowed to deteriorate.City attorney Tim Pirtle has informed Streets and Sanitation Committee members that all property owners along the street have agreed to give up part of their property for a right of way if the city agrees to take over the street “as is” and make much-needed improvements.“We have commitments from all the landowners on the street to donate a portion of their property,” said Pirtle.
