Polly is looking for a new home here in the greater Lansing area. But she’s not looking for just any home: she wants to find the area’s largest, deepest pothole to make a posh home in.
Our new friend is a pink cockatoo (Via Defectum in Latin). She’s relocated to Lansing because she heard from the folks at the Lansing Regional Chamber of Commerce that the region’s streets are littered with potholes — a dream come true for a pothole -nesting cockatoo!
“I was so excited when I read the press reports on the Lansing area’s road crisis,” she said. “Who knew a paradise of potholes was awaiting in the capital region?”
You can help! Do you have a titantic pothole near you? Is there a gaping hole on your commute? Polly wants to know. All you have to do is email her at PollyPothole@LansingCityPulse.com. Make sure to include the street and block number (e.g. 200-300 ) where your nominated pothole is located.
Polly will review all submissions and wingabout the city reviewing each one. City Pulse will be along for each inspection and we’ll get Polly’s take on the depth, width and comfort of the pothole for her nesting needs.
Each Tuesday, Polly will feature her weekly pick on City Pulse’s website, LansingCityPulse.com.
Eye Sore will return next week
