If we are, indeed to have 24/7 public toilets, then maintenance MUST be better than what we have now. The pics are of the bathrooms on the exterior of the community center at Plummer Park, taken randomly. There are two at that location and the second one on two different occasions, was locked with apparently an individual holed-up inside.
I am firmly in favor of having facilities available but I have serious concerns about the sanitation and safety of the these facilities. I am of the opinion that we should not ask yet another thing of Block by Block to provide the safety to patrons of the bathrooms. Even in elementary schools there are such things as “bathroom monitors.” Quite frankly, the public bathrooms are not safe or clean NOW during the day. Please think long and hard about the prospect of these overnight facilities and please increase awareness and response time of the current maintenance crew.Sincerely, Stephanie Harker
