Clean up litter and weeds on Charlotte, NC roads and sidewalks sign now

This is a sad time in Charlotte history. If you have ever traveled around I-485 in south or west Charlotte you can't help but notice what an eyesore it has become in such a short amount of time. The entire stretch, including entrance and exit ramps on all our local interstates are littered with everything from dead animals, furniture to plain old trash, not to mention the overgrowth of unmaintained landscaping. The medians are so obscured with weeds, many over 5 feet high, and so much tire debris from truckers that you literally take a risk of damaging your vehicle if you ever had to use these emergency lanes to pull over. Can you imagine what travelers passing through must think?

Have you tried lately walking down a sidewalk that is not privately maintained in the Queen City? Our sidewalks are barely passable unless they are maintained by property owners. Many of these sidewalks are near schools and are used regularly by children, yet they are hardly usable because of the extreme overgrowth. This is very dangerous!

The city has continually blamed the state & vice-versa and now the problem has reached to epidemic proportions. I can personally attest through my extensive travels that I have seen no other city in the US with roadways as trashy as the ones in Charlotte, NC. Our mayor is not doing enough. If this out-of-control problem bothers you as a Charlotte or nearby resident, please sign my petition. Thank you.
