Hanging on both sides of the courthouse as you drive downtown are the huge obnoxious banners for a Shenandoah valley gay pride event. I don't know the criteria for placing banners on the courthouse property but this offends me to no end. I have heard many people reiterate that this is extremely offensive to them and they resent that they have to be exposed to this kind of material on their own city property. While this issue disturbs and offends me I respect the right of people to organize and execute this event however the promotion of this on city property is dead wrong. Leaving it up offends many people, removing it only means that a private entity has to seek conventional means to promote their event. The city would not allow other sexually themed events to hang on court square, there should not be an exception for this. It's trash and hurts the city.

My family and I moved to Harrisonburg about 5 months ago. Since moving here, we have noticed several bad accidents happen at the intersection of Pear Street and Erickson Avenue. I believe that these accidents could have been prevented if there was a traffic light in place. It is very difficult to turn onto Erickson Avenue from Pear Street, due to oncoming traffic coming from both directions. Coming from Russel Drive to Pear Street, it sometimes takes over five minutes to make a safe turn. If a traffic light were in place, these issues could undoubtedly be resolved.

Signs that are needed downtown

The stretch from Mosby Road to Pleasant Valley Road, both ways: Bicyclists and Joggers are using or running in the wrong lane; autos are routinely exceeding 50 miles per hour especially at rush hour; autos are driving in the turning lane for excessive distances; or recklessly pulling around others trying to merge from the turning lane.

Modern science indicates that ingesting fluoride is ineffective at reducing tooth decay and harmful to health. Over 4700 professionals, including hundreds of MD's and dentists, urge the end of water fluoridation. See their statement here: http://fluorideaction.net/researchers/professionals-statement

Please move ahead with the Northend Greenway so I can enjoy it before I die. I am 72 and have been waiting for this for years!! I realize this is selfish but I do not know how long I will be able to walk and bike so I can enjoy the trail.

It is foolish to require every business in the city to have a bike rack. Bike rack should be up to the individual business as to where they install them or not. As a bike rider, it seems as though the area in the city that might benefit from the racks is in the center of the city, not out by the new Alternative Education Center near MTC. Requiring a bike rack at that location is totally foolish and a waste of money. Let the businesses decide.

Numerous pedestrians, pets, and wildlife in the area with too many speeders!

The information architecture and UX of the HDPT part of Harrisonburg.gov is awful. There is no reason for Bus Routes to have three separate pages. Seeing any schedule information requires a PDF download. If you don't already know the bus system, you're probably downloading multiple PDFs just to figure out the routes, and then going to another page entirely to see when those routes run. The NextBus website also takes 5-10 minutes to get to any useful information, and nobody except marketing teams likes QR codes (how many people even have a QR code reader app), so that's not helpful. The worst part is that all of these things add up to a horrible user experience on mobile, particularly for people who have limited data or older devices. Between the poor IA and the forced downloads, this issue is disproportionally affecting individuals with low income and intellectual disabilities.
