Signs that are needed downtown

The stretch from Mosby Road to Pleasant Valley Road, both ways: Bicyclists and Joggers are using or running in the wrong lane; autos are routinely exceeding 50 miles per hour especially at rush hour; autos are driving in the turning lane for excessive distances; or recklessly pulling around others trying to merge from the turning lane.

Modern science indicates that ingesting fluoride is ineffective at reducing tooth decay and harmful to health. Over 4700 professionals, including hundreds of MD's and dentists, urge the end of water fluoridation. See their statement here: http://fluorideaction.net/researchers/professionals-statement

Please move ahead with the Northend Greenway so I can enjoy it before I die. I am 72 and have been waiting for this for years!! I realize this is selfish but I do not know how long I will be able to walk and bike so I can enjoy the trail.

It is foolish to require every business in the city to have a bike rack. Bike rack should be up to the individual business as to where they install them or not. As a bike rider, it seems as though the area in the city that might benefit from the racks is in the center of the city, not out by the new Alternative Education Center near MTC. Requiring a bike rack at that location is totally foolish and a waste of money. Let the businesses decide.

Numerous pedestrians, pets, and wildlife in the area with too many speeders!

The information architecture and UX of the HDPT part of Harrisonburg.gov is awful. There is no reason for Bus Routes to have three separate pages. Seeing any schedule information requires a PDF download. If you don't already know the bus system, you're probably downloading multiple PDFs just to figure out the routes, and then going to another page entirely to see when those routes run. The NextBus website also takes 5-10 minutes to get to any useful information, and nobody except marketing teams likes QR codes (how many people even have a QR code reader app), so that's not helpful. The worst part is that all of these things add up to a horrible user experience on mobile, particularly for people who have limited data or older devices. Between the poor IA and the forced downloads, this issue is disproportionally affecting individuals with low income and intellectual disabilities.

Idea: Recycling

Kimberly Amaya over 1 year ago

Realized there's a lot of mail, papers, books, etc.. from colleges and high school and the nearest paper recycling place is in Dayton. We need a paper recycling place in the city, it will shows us that we are going green.

Our local police can decide whether a criminal is violent and here illegally and should be reported to ICE, rather than agreeing to turn over all info on those suspected of possibly being here illegally to the federal government, risking distrust when community members think that cooperating with authorities can put them at risk for deportation. I'm not sure what our city's current policy is on this, but it would be great if we could announce our town as being an official Sanctuary City, making our community members feel even safer here.

10% of our city school system's limited-English-proficiency students are from Iraq, one of the countries included in Trump's recent Executive Order. Many local students, college students, and family members are here on green cards and special visas. We also are home to many Dreamers. Let's make sure they feel safe and secure in their home city, Harrisonburg, Virginia.
