Current Dumpster Location XXX Restaurant Location
Chuck E. Cheese Trash Dumpster Fall 2009 North side of parking lot. Inadequate for volume produced and lack of controls to keep vermin out or to keep homeless population from using it as a source of food.
Existing screening for dumpster. Photo taken Fall 2009 shortly after dumpster was moved from site in preparation of redevelopment.
Spillage from the dumpster or trash and food pulled by animals and people was evident for years with restaurant employees making no effort to maintain the area. Trash seen in this picture is in front of a storm drain leading to Quander Brook.
Evidence of trash in Quander Brook below the storm water outfall from the shopping center parking lot.
Restaurant patron parking area was another source of litter that was not routinely cleaned up and left to be carried by wind and water into the surrounding properties and Quander Brook.
Parking spaces in front of Chuck E. Cheese restaurant during Fall of 2009 showing evidence of patron littering.
Lack of maintenance on the curbs and sidewalks at the time the restaurant was open for business conveys an attitude about appearance that is not acceptable to the community.
Picture of the south side of the parking lot (opposite end from the restaurant and dumpster location). Wind blown refuse from both the dumpster and patrons is entering wooded areas that are the back yards of residents on Fairview Drive.
Citizens in the Spring Bank community are opposed to any expansion of the Chuck E. Cheese Restaurant by the granting of construction waivers or special exception without enforceable proffers or development conditions drafted and agreed upon that will put an end to the inadequate waste disposal system and negligent property maintenance issues brought before the MVCCA Planning & Zoning Committee in March of 2010.
