    Every year when Avon holds the Duct Tape Festival, the residents around Detroit Rd (Moon Rd, French Creek Rd & Colorado Ave) suffer the ill effects of the excess traffic. We can't get up down...

    It's great that these big name companies are coming to Avon (Meijer's, Cabella's etc), as well as the little guys that have built here, too, but the infrastructure of the city can't handle any more...

  6. Hazardous Waste Round Up Needed

    I think the city should consider having a hazardous waste round up a couple times a year. Other communities in the area conduct these round ups. It makes good sense to make it convenient for the...

  7. French Creek Bridge

    What a shame the city has let a landmark like the French Creek Bridge on Detroit Rd fall into such disrepair. Repair and paint is sorely needed and for immediate relief, just remove the broken down...

    There used to be a "keep right" sign there on the south end of that island. It is difficult to see where that island begins as you are turning from Chester on to 83. Add snow on top of it and it's...
