There is a continuous two block long "potchasm" on North Campbell that runs from NE 44th Street to NE 43rd, and has been untouched for at least four years.

During that time, the 40-46 Neighborhood Association has repeatedly contacted the City (I know of 23 "case numbers" than have been assigned), as well as both Councilpersons (4th District, Justus and Shields) and the Mayor's Office.

Of course, this is a location north of the River, where there are negligible City Services (except for Tax Collection), the longest Police, Fire and Ambulance response times in the City, and an attitude of complete disregard on the part of all City employees, so I guess nothing different should reasonably be expected.

We don't ask for anything other than the same levels of service provided to every location south of the River, despite the fact that a disproportionate portion (63% of revenues from 38% of the population) of the City's income comes from the Northland.
