Miles- I love and respect you. But when it comes to Matt’s, I fear you suffer from Stockholm syndrome. The “progress” you suggest is ephemeral. They are becoming increasingly disdainful of our concerns. Chris has told me he tried to move trash pickup with Waste management to after 8 AM but he can’t. Sodelconcepts can’t arrange pickups and deliveries by their vendors??? All believers say Aye.
I have kept an informal log of the pollution Matt’s thrusts on Bay road. It is attached below. But know this- THEY HAVE NOT REDUCED OR RESCHEDULED PICK UPS AND DELIVERIES. THEY KNOW IT IS WRONG BUT DO IT ANYWAY. And I am confidence Chris is part of the Problem, not the solution.
<“8-4 10:20 PM- staff noisily empties glass bottles into recycling receptacles- awakened by noise
8-5- Waste Mgmt- 6 AM. The full experience- air breaks, idling engine for up to 10 minutes, gate opening, drag/engage with dumpster; empty dumpster; clang the dumpster a couple of times to assure it is empty (and that the neighbors are awake); return dumpster to gated area; scrape to assure it is fully in place; rev engine; wheel around on Bay Road- depart 6:13.
8-6- Vegetable delivery 7:20; Schagrin Gas 8:20; Waste Mgmt.-Recycling truck- 8:25. Vege truck parked on Matt lot; others in Bay Road. Power washing 10:00 AM (much needed). NOTE- at 10:53, 5 of the 31 spots on the lot are in use…before Customers arrive. 11:17 Budget truck parks partially in Bay.
8-7-19 Waste Mgmt. wake up at 6:10 AM.
8-12-19 WM at 6:19 AM; Sysco at 7:35 AM; spoke with Fish Truck block west bound bay at 1 PM when lot is ½ full…why not park on lot. At 6ish pm, a car pulls into the right lane of NB 1 to get around car attempting to turn right on Bay, so as to park on street facing spot on Matt’s Chris at 3 PM…he has nothing to offer.
*What if they line up cars headed EB on Bay. When spot opens, car goes Bay to Ocean to Admiral and then proceeds to streetside spot or to attendant who points him to spot.
8-13-19 WM recycling 7:45 AM. 11:14 Deep Eddy Vodka in EB Bay when lot is empty! Why?
8-14 WM 5:58 dumpster dance.
8-19 Waste Management arrives Late…at 6:15 AM.
The only solution I can suggest are make Bay one way WEST bound. Will it inconvenience south bound travelers- Yes. You will go past Bay, hook a Uturn and then enter Admiral, Cove or Dune. Not too odious. The benefit, Matt people will not be uturning in neighborhood driveways, they will not be clogging Rt. One at Bay. I suspect Admiral will catch most of the increased flow…may be then 2 streets will recognize Matt’s for the scourge on our community they have chosen to become.
Remember, they were going to have employees park elsewhere and shuttle them in…have you seen the Matt’s shuttle. They now fill nearly 20 % of the parking spots with employee cars. I speculate that they allow this since having all spots filled with guests exceeds their ability to deliver fried fare for which they are aromatically known.
I suggested to Chris they move Matt’s to the G and E parking lot, with mucho parking and more distant victims, I mean neighbors. Then turn the Tower Shore facility into the Sodelconcepts Training and professional development center…you have to be taught how to handle 500 degree fat! And it could also house their community service and outreach team. A true Win-win.
In closing, I love Tower Shores and hate to see it treated the way Sodel and Matt’s have chosen to treat us. Thank you.
