  • 255 Common Street Watertown, MA, 02472, USA - Watertown
    There has been a wet mattress and bed frame in front of 255 Common St for weeks. They will leave old furniture out until they move it up the road and put it in front of the green golf course fence a few doors up the road. There are some of their old chairs there now.
  • Linear Parkwatertown Br Watertown, MA, 02472, USA - Watertown
    Linear Park is totally littered with dog feces. The area could benefit from signage reminding people to clean up after their dogs and the associated fines of not doing so. Because individual owners are not acting responsibly, I believe a clean up effort is needed by DPW. It's challenging to take a step off the path without stepping in feces, which is not only a health concern but detracts from our beautiful park.

    Freely growing prohibited & invasive plant (japanese knotweed). This plant is in the MA prohibited plants list (https://www.mass.gov/service-details/massachusetts-prohibited-plant-list).
