See, Click, Fix: Missing signs replaced...almost

By John Carter - bio l email

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) -- See, Click, Fix is getting a viewer problem fixed, but only to run into another problem. This is an update to a story we first told you about last week, one we thought was getting fixed right away.  But there's been a bit of an unexpected hitch.

There are no street signs identifying Mayfield Terrace Drive in northwest Charlotte. Neighbors wrote See, Click, Fix of their concerns about emergency vehicles and others having trouble finding their homes.

The city can't do the signs because this is a private street drive.  We're told the apartment complex the street runs through hasn't done signs because of budget issues.

When the folks with the Conder Flag Company in Charlotte heard about the problem they didn't hesitate to help.  In addition to flags, Conder makes signs and they came up with a couple of beauties. They made two double-sided signs with Mayfield Terrace Drive on them and gave them to us at no charge.

So as soon as we picked them up Friday we took them out to the apartment complex to put them up. But as of Monday, we still have the signs.  Why, you may ask?  Initially, an apartment manager told us it would be fine to put up the signs. But when we went out Friday...another manager told us we couldn't.  It seems we have to get permission higher up, from corporate managers with the company that owns the apartments.  So far, they haven't returned our phone calls.  We don't know why, perhaps they've been on vacation or something else.

We still have the donation from Conder Flag Company.  We'll keep calling the apartment's decision-makers to see if there is a way we can put those signs up.  After all, they're free.

We'll keep you posted.
