Editor, Casa Grande Dispatch:
I have been patient long enough. What is going on at the corner of Peart and Kortsen? I kept hoping that the city of Casa Grande would finish their “grand project.” Our city fathers spent a fortune on a new recreation center, street widening, landscaping, etc. and then stopped the road 30 feet short of the corner? Really? The corner is now a huge dump of leftover construction material and a hazard to navigation. There are large open pits, broken barriers lying on the ground with yellow caution tape wound around everything and rocks from the drainage ditch all over the landscape, what a mess.
This area is not only an eyesore but a very dangerous situation for a pedestrian attempting to navigate this minefield. Why don’t they finish the road and clean up the corner. I would really like a response from Mayor McFarland and the City Council on this issue. I ask them to finish what they started and complete the road and clean up that corner.
