Blocking sidewalks with trash cans
Original post made by Walker on Nov 15, 2006
Please try to remember that the sidewalks are for pedestrians to use and do not block them. Trash cans must be placed out without blocking the sidewalk and replaced into your property Tuesday evening. It is much too dangerous (as well as unsightly) to leave them out indefinitely.

Feel better after venting? When PASCO gave us our recyling cans they also gave us literature on how to properly position the cans on recycling day (wheels in gutter or on grass (not blocking the sidewalk) they also asked that cans not be put out later than 6 am on pick up day and be put away that evening. Perhaps you could simply talk to your neighbors or put an anonymous note on their can(s). If that doesn't work maybe PASCO could help. Good luck

it sounds like you need to move into a gated community where you all have the same color house and have to wear certain colored attire to jog around the neighborhood and everyone's married to a Stepford wife.
chill out seriously.

I think there might be a middle ground between the first and last message! I don't think that Walker was complaining on aesthetic grounds, which form most of the basis for those CC&R restrictions in new developments (gated or not). I think he did have a legitimate point about safety concerns, since the sidewalk is best kept clear so people can walk there.
I love reading this forum. People will just slam just about anyone for anything! I still think this forum should be anonymous, but keep in mind that it is easier to be super-critical and kind of mean when no one knows who you are, and you aren't standing there face-to-face with someone. Of course you can say what you want, though. I think being mild-mannered and respectful is kind of cool, though - especially if you don't have to be.
