Simple laundry rack trellis posts are visible in some inner courtyards, splay wires and hooks still visible were used as a very "sustainable" practice of drying your clothes on washlines. Current laundry facilities are poorly maintained and dryer vents not cleaned. Another reason to switch back to older practices and promote prior proper use of the designed elements. Children do still play and ride bikes in these areas but due to unmaintained storage areas and lurking scavengers people do not feel it is safe to use the drying racks. Perhaps maintenance and improved security would improve this situation to the environments benefit.
