Sutherlin has become a mecca for the retired people whom have moved here to escapee from Ca., Etc. In the process we have so called "Parks" developed around town. And THEY are parks too! Quiet, speed bumps abound, children playing in the streets. Very nice neighborhoods! The problem is that to get to these "Parks" is that they are all deadends and cul-de-sacs. In order for them to acess their parks they use adjacent streets as freeways to get home to their nice quiet neighborhoods. Those of us on S. State St. recieve no relief as it is a deadend st. with people coming and going like it is a freeway and without regulation from the local police. The seem to avoid this particular street for some odd reason?? We have complained over and over without relief. Excuses AND claims that this street is patroled!! Nothing could be further from the truth. I have videos of cars, school busses, delivery trucks and the entitiltled igonore this posted street at 20 mph all the way long. It is anarchy, dangerous, and many children are at risk on this street. DO NOT COME HERE and take more of my quality of life as i watch a freeway in front of my residentail home that has been in my family for 60 years. Before all the "Parks" were put in with one way in and one way out of this deadend street. Look for great planning and safety here in this town with 7 cop cars for 7000 people and maybe 3 police staff. South State Street is ignored and someone has paid someone off or WE WOULD HAVE POLICE service. Not be refused with, "I DIDN'T WITNESS IT" referring to a drunk driver that the police refuse to investigate or the threats to people that are ignored as well. Wanna come here? If so be black or brown...we need the balance and have very cheap housing and business fronts going for song and dance here!!
