Neighborhood Nature Trail

I'm looking for feedback on this one that was rejected. I knew PRP was going to be a issue, since it is in a neighborhood.

I did my research and tried to address that as much as possible in the supporting information, but it was still rejected for private residential property, which it is not. Neighborhood association owns the land and residents are encouraged to use the area. I even put the location on the public sidewalk.

The streetview is old and goes not show the sign, so I will see about getting a new photosphere added to confirm the real-workd location.

I'm not sure how to address it does not meet criteria. It's a nature trail with a sign that clearly denotes that.

I upgraded it to see what would happen, but will not next go round.

Thanks for the feedback.

    I think @cyndiepooh-ING has some great suggestions above, particularly with regards to the supporting photo and the shorter supporting info. Especially make sure you get that fire hydrant in the supporting photo, assuming it's still there--I would probably even add a very brief reference in the supporting info like "Note fire hydrant in supporting photo for reference."

    I would also suggest taking the main photo from a bit further to the left so that the trail is more clearly visible in the background of the main photo, and I would suggest you tighten up the pin placement on the map, as your current pin is on the very edge of the street, but the sign appears to be a few meters past the sidewalk.

    Personally, I think the sign looks plenty professional. It's just about the type of sign I'd expect to see for this sort of trail. I am mindful that it could look fake to some reviewers, particularly since it isn't on Street View. Overall, though, I think it might take a few tries just because of the close proximity to the houses and the phrase "residents only" scaring off some misguided reviewers, but I think it stands a good chance of being accepted.

    tbh looks like a very solid nomination. I would also not refer to the ama’s in the supporting info. I would also not upgrade this and let your locals review it

    Thanks for the feedback everyone. I appreciate it.

    The new streetview photosphere is up, so that should help confirm the location.

    And I will cut down the text in the supp info. I had to laugh at "because good reviewers will already know that and bad reviewers won't read that far." Its unfortunately true, which is why I wanted to have a wall of support. Thanks for your time and input!
