TOLEDO - Sara Goodman is just plain sick of the area that's bringing her neighborhood down. Her neighborhood is near Sherbrooke and Bellevue, and the area that's bugging her is near the railroad tracks.

Recently, she turned to Call 11 for Action problem solver Mika Highsmith for answers.

Goodman doesn't know who owns the property, but she does know something needs to be done.

Mika found out that CSX owns the land, so they should be maintaining it. Indeed, the city has cited the railroad carrier, which means the mess should be cleaned up soon.

Goodman is pleased but wants to make sure the fix is permanent.

"It would be nice to have a bike path out here," she said.

Actually, it looks like a bike path has been in the works for a while. TMACOG wants to buy the property from CSX and has been going back forth for years about the price.

TMACOG agreed to leave it up to appraiser. That process has been completed so the project should be in place soon.

Mika will keep you updated.
