Maple Street neighbors confront city over safety concerns
Emily Goligoski was 7 years old when she addressed Perrysburg City Council, letting them know she was unhappy when she walked her cocker spaniel from her home on Maple Street down the hill toward the river and saw there were boys next to their boats drinking beer.
“Council treated her very well back then,” said Emily’s mother, Sally Goligoski, who has lived on Maple Street with her husband Tim since they had the house built in 1987. “They had the WaveRunners moved away from that area.”
Now 36, Ms. Goligoski, senior director of audience research at The Atlantic, is working from her parents’ Maple Street home as she, her husband and their son shelter-in-place during the pandemic.
She is surprised—and not surprised—that not much has changed to make the street and the hill safe for children, walkers, runners and cyclists. Her parents have sought the city’s help for nearly 30 years.
