Kent Patch Facebook and Twitter followers responded to this question just after the New Year: "If you could pick a New Year's resolution for the city of Kent, what would it be and why?"
Here's what they had to say:
"I have two. Get the parking situation stabilized ASAP. Fix the RR crossing on Middlebury Rd. Those tracks have been ridiculous for as long as I can remember."
"Something centered around parking. I work downtown, (Acorn) Alley 2. As you know, there's a collective hope the deck is finished asap — will be good for all."
"I would like to see crosswalks marked with yellow cones & signs that say cars must stop for people, like Hudson."
"I would like to see laws regarding students (off campus) who abandon their cats and dogs at the end of the semester or year. Residents (non-student) do this also. Maybe we can monitor the problem or start a feral cat community."
"Stop catering to Kent State and start fixing things in other parts of the city that are neglected!"
