  • Booth St Burlington, VT, 05401, USA - Burlington Electric

    I am submitting this document that lays out a suggestion to possibly address a way to increase the number of electric vehicle charging options in the Old North End without sacrificing any existing parking capacity by changing the current parallel parking on Booth Street to be diagonal parking and installing EV charging stations at some of the extra spaces.

    If you can suggest a better point of contact with the city for this proposal, please let me know.

    Deceptive markings and signage.

    I received a ticket for parking in this spot near the corner of Drew and North street. The street has clear parking space space markings where I parked, and there is a sign between the next driveway and the marked space that says no parking here to corner. The obvious inference from the combination of sign and markings is to not park too close to the driveway, but the parking enforcement officer told me it means that you can't park in the area with the parking spot markings.

    I will be contesting the ticket, but this is an obvious signage failure that will continue to confuse people until it is corrected.

  • 1555 North Ave Burlington, VT, 05408, USA - Burlington Electric
    Drivers are constantly parked on the sidewalk in front of the gas pumps in this location, despite there being ample parking provided in the gas station lot. This creates hazards and visibility issues for people walking, biking, and driving. Could the city install some bollards or at least flexposts to delineate the sidewalk from the gas station property? Please do not assign this to enforcement—this needs an engineering solution.
  • 36 Elmwood Ave Burlington, Vermont, 05401 - Burlington Electric
    I hope this email finds you well, though I must express that I am deeply frustrated and concerned about an issue that has persisted for far too long. Over the past year, I have been living at 36 Elmwood Avenue, where we have had an ongoing issue with parking spaces in front of our residence that has caused significant inconvenience and frustration.
    Initially, we had two public parking spots in front of our house, which were already far too small for the average vehicle. These undersized parking spaces frequently led to larger vehicles obstructing our driveway, rendering it nearly impossible for us to access or exit our property. The situation reached a point where we had no choice but to lodge numerous complaints with the city regarding the constant obstructions to our driveway.
    After much persistence and communication with your department, we were relieved when our concerns were finally taken seriously, and the decision was made to reduce the two undersized spots to one standard parking space. This was a significant step towards resolving our ongoing problem. For a brief period, this solution worked perfectly, allowing us unimpeded access to our driveway.
    However, I am writing to express my extreme dismay and disappointment in learning that the city has recently converted the second parking spot into a designated motorcycle parking area. This decision has thrown us back into the same predicament we thought we had overcome. I am deeply concerned that this decision not only appears to be arbitrary but also, more importantly, poses a serious risk to public safety.
    The situation is further exacerbated by the fact that this converted space is equipped with a parking meter, which implies that it is a valid parking spot for automobiles. Consequently, I am frustrated and angry about the inevitable recurrence of vehicles parking in this area, completely blocking our driveway and causing us undue stress and inconvenience.
    I must emphasize that this situation is not only a matter of inconvenience but also a safety hazard, as it jeopardizes our ability to access our own property in emergencies. I am baffled by the city's decision to implement this change without addressing the legitimate concerns of residents in this neighborhood. One of my fellow residents had previously expressed their reservations during the planning stage, yet it seems that these concerns have been disregarded.
    I implore you to reconsider this decision and take immediate action to rectify this situation. The safety and well-being of residents should always be the utmost priority for the city. I request that the second parking space be returned to its previous state as it was before this recent change to a motorcycle spot, ensuring that residents can continue to access their properties without obstruction.
    I eagerly await your prompt response and a resolution to this matter. Please understand that this issue has caused significant distress and inconvenience to us, and we trust that the city will take our concerns seriously and act in the best interest of its residents.

  • Rose St Burlington, Vermont, 05401 - Burlington Electric
    SPEED BUMPS NEEDED! I just moved onto this street two weeks ago and have observed people basically drag racing up the street (no exaggeration) often late at night. It wakes us up and is very loud. One person was doing loops around the block (I counted 5-6). It is a daily occurrence. I am also aware of multiple traffic fatalities due to excessive speed on this street in the last few years. I have a 6 YO child and real concerns about safety, as cars speed up and down the street. Other nearby small streets like ours have speed bumps, why not this one? I am also concerned that an accident could hit our house, which is on the corner of Cedar and Rose St. and right across from the site of a fatal accident last year. Please help make our street safe for children (and everyone)! Sincerely, Concerned Citizen
  • 11 Brookes Ave Burlington, Vermont, 05401 - Burlington Electric
    We have two parking spots designated in front of our house. It is nearly impossible for that to take place unless there are two very small vehicles. Our driveway is constantly partially blocked. I do not like to call to have the car ticketed as we get irate folks coming to our door or egging our car. I would like to have the spot in front of our house designated as a single parking spot

  • 489 Ethan Allen Pkwy Burlington VT 05408, United States - Burlington Electric
    The road is not wide enough here for street parking, the parked cars cause traffic to have to use the oncoming lane to pass them. If there are bikers present or a turning vehicle from either street ts is a collision hazar
  • 340 North St Burlington, Vermont, 05401 - Burlington Electric
    Across the street from us at 340 North Street, is a street parking spot that always has 2 cars trying to squeeze into it. It measures 29' from curb cut to curb cut. As I understand it, there needs to be 2' from the end of the car to the nearest curb cut. So, 2' from each side of this space from 29' equals 25'. Standard parking space design depth is 20'. There are constantly cars being towed because of the parking enforcement. I wasn't sure if parking enforcement makes recommendations for signage at certain locations? I do know that the tail end and nose end of cars are constantly edging into the driveway curb cuts on both ends of this spot, making it dangerous and difficult for people to see/pull out onto the streets safely. I recently saw a sign on North Willard saying something like.."this space for single car only" or something like that. Can we get one installed here as well?
