Silver Lake Ave Public Staircase: Time To Repaint The Red Curb At Lake View Ave

Photo: Diane Edwardson, July 24, 2015. You have to wonder, would the same driver park the truck blocking a public street intersection?  Yes, the truck is parked facing the wrong way.  (Click on photo to enlarge.)

The Silver Lake Ave Public Staircase at the intersection of Lake View Ave has no sidewalk.  The red curb is badly faded.  However a City street sign marks the public staircase at Lake View.

Report faded red curbs to the LA City Dept of Transportation (DOT).  Unfortunately, DOT does not acknowledge the Silver Lake Ave Public Staircase between the Red Car Property and Lake View or Silver Ridge on their map.  (Yet it appears on ZIMAS, LAFD, County Assessor and DWP maps).  So I was unable to submit the request online.  Good luck getting the curb repainted since the DOT staff answering the phone will be looking at the same map available online.  

And we wonder why our public staircases are so neglected?
