Anyone else feel the city should block this street off during Halloween (5pm-7:30) for safety?

No the wonderful people that live there should have the right to get in and out of their homes on Halloween night. Not all of them celebrate Halloween, and shouldn't be kept from driving on their street. However I do believe parents should walk with their children and keep them out of the road for safety! Thanks to the residents of South Green street and surronding areas for once again going all out to make this Halloween fun! You do a great job.

I think the Trick or Treaters should stay on the sidewalks and watch where they're going. I live off South Green and it's impossible for me to get home from work on Halloween. One year it took me 30 mins to get from Save A Lot to my house because people were standing it the street and wouldn't move. I don't care what day of the year it is, pedestrians stay on the side walk and cars on the street. Also don't go driving from house to house and parking in the road. Park somewhere, like Save A Lot and walk, lazy people. Burn off some calories so you can eat that candy.

If you live there then you know that there are stretches where there is no sidewalk on South Green.

You are flat out wrong. You need to go back and look. I walked it with my child last night. On the side that the Lessenbery's live on, there are places where there is no sidewalk.

Why is this street such a hot-spot for the little Devil-worshipers? I sense that all the parents who vote for Obama and who are always criticizing the "rich", are sending their little monsters out to try and get the best stuff, instead of settling for Raisinettes and razor blades at Bluegrass Place. Like they're getting a jump on the Angel Tree thing.

No, the road should not be closed so that your little urchins can go around begging candy! If you don't like the conditions on S. Green, go somewhere else. It's not right that everyone flocks to this one street. Damn! Have some self-respect! Amazing what some people will do just for a few pieces of free candy- to the point where you're even willing to inconvenience others in their own homes and neighborhoods. Nice thing to teach your kids!

Doesn't anybody in this town have any self-respect or consideration for others? It's always "Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!".

The only place on that street with no sidewalks is about a block long where Dr Lessenberrry lives. There are sidewalks everywhere else.

Even if there's no sidewalk, on one side of the street, for a little bit, there's this stuff called grass. It's solid enough to walk on and if you're going to be going around peddling for candy I wouldn't think you'd have a problem walking in someone's yard.

I understand the issue with blocking residents. If the streets aren't blocked, what else could be done due to the way some fly down the street? Parents or not, accidents happen. No cars to avoid would make it a more enjoyable (and safer) experience.

The point is you can't "fly" down the street cause its blocked by people. The accidents are going to be caused by the people driving their kids from house to house, parking in the road and pulling out of driveways without looking, not by the people who live on the street or drive it everyday.

Lived one block off South Green since 1964. Used to be parents took kids around their own neighborhoods. Now, with the current cookie cutter culture, folks have to do exactly as everyone else. Sort of like if you are going to S. Green, well me, too. Of course their are a couple of well-meaning families and a few well-meaning churches who in their efforts at outreach also manage to fuel the problem. Dr. Lessenberry is to be commended for his tireless and unfailing give-back to the community on Hallowe'en, but that also adds to the traffic and foot traffic congestion.
Deal with it. I have since 1964. It only lasts about 3 hours.
If you are too grown up and too self-serving to deal with it, go to Walmart. That place is deserted during the hours of trick or treat.
Sign me,
Drive slowly and allow the kids to enjoy Halloween.
Thanks.
p.s. Some years, the warmer ones I guess, it has taken an half hour to drive from Save A Lot. If that is the route you choose to take, allow for it. OR plan your day better and go to Save A Lot before trick or treat. Last night it only took seven minutes to drive to the by-pass. That was because some not-bright lady chose to roll her baby stroller in the middle of the southbound lane. Ordinarily it only takes about 2-3 minutes to make the drive.

I wasn't at Save A Lot, I was coming home from work past Save a Lot. There's no other route to my house, I have to drive on South Green. I can't plan my day better, when I get off work is when I get off work. I have no problem with the kids going trick or treating, or having fun. I'd sit at home and give them candy if I wasn't working.

My point is stay out of the street. If you wouldn't stand in the middle of the road on a normal day, don't do it just because its Halloween.

I've lived off S Green for over 5 years, every year it takes me between 20 and 30 mins to get home because of all the people in the road and the cars stopping at every house.

Halloween night, pagan holiday
Devils night.
In mainstream Christianity, God and the Devil are usually portrayed as fighting over the souls of humans, with the Devil seeking to lure people away from God and into Hell. The Devil commands a force of evil spirits, commonly known as demons,
or trick or treatiers,.

Christmas was a pagan holiday before the church took it over too. This has nothing to do with the problem of people in the streets.

You guys turn everything into a political discussion. When you die and meet Jesus, you'll be like "Dirty hippy! Why'd you give free health care to those people in Nazareth?"

This is a once-a-year event. Blocking off streets from 5-7:30 isn't so bad when one considers the safety of our children. If there was a resident needing to get home, they could always show ID to verify and be escorted via GPD. In reality, they'd get home faster without all the cars and driving trick-or-treaters. The issue with the cars on South Green is mostly with those driving just to snoop or be there. If only those passing through were due to being a resident and not just passing through, there would be a big traffic difference. The wait doesn't bother me, but a pedestrian being injured or killed does.
