Hallandale Beach Blog -A common sense public policy overview offering a critical perspective on the current events, politics, govt., public policy, sports scene and pop culture of the U.S., South Florida and Europe, especially the UK and Sweden. In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln.

The Hollywood Eyesore That Refuses to Leave!

Late March 2008 photo by South Beach Hoosier

Almost 18 months after I first noticed it in November of 2006, this large mound of dirt, debris and garbage on the north side of the Hollywood-Hallandale Beach border, at A1A and Hallandale Beach Blvd., Hollywood's longstanding eyesore continues to taunt and mock anyone who passes it.
Despite some personal visits to Hollywood City Hall to inquire and complain about why it's allowed to just sit there ruining the neighborhood, there it sits, exposing the bureaucratic failure of the city to rectify it.
Where are the plastic slit-fences attached to the fence facing A1A, to keep dirt and debris from flying around the area onto pedestrians and drivers alike?
What do you think is going to happen, it's sitting at THE windiest part of the community?
And the longstanding garbage and overgrown weeds on the sidewalk on A1A is pretty shabby, too!
Welcome to Hollywood's front door on scenic A1A!
