    I’m not sure if this is for SC fix, but we just got notice yesterday they are tearing up the entire street and neighborhood to put new electrical piping underground. Could this be the time, since all wires are underground anyways, to also remove all the polls and put the wires underground like the city has for Kendall Square? It seems more important to put the wires underground where there are families than just the businesses. Is that possible? Thank you for considering.

    Mudslide behind city hall :-/
  • 2000 Massachusetts Avenue Cambridge, MA, 02140, USA - North Cambridge
    This scaffolding has been up for almost 3 full years. There has been no accountability by the city to ensure this was completed in a timely fashion. I live in the neighborhood and have only seen anyone working on this a handful of times over the 3 years it has been up. The city needs to step in and ask the owner to provide a reasonable timeline to when this project will finish.
  • 2000 Massachusetts Avenue Cambridge, Massachusetts, 02140 - North Cambridge
    This scaffolding has been here for so long, over a year, and there is no construction going on for that time. I work at this business and it is negatively affecting us. We have attempted to get our landlord to remove it and nothing has happened. Can you help us?

    Ironically, the statue/bust of Vellucio that has been reinstalled at the former park is creating a hazard as it blocks view of pedestrians just as bicycles are coming very quickly around the curve. Someone is going to get hit, I had a close call already there.
  • 150 Dudley Street Cambridge, Massachusetts, 02140 - North Cambridge
    Hi, I'm not sure if this is the right category. Someone left a black bag on the sidewalk at the corner of Dudley and Jackson. It appears to be full of dirt and weighs too much for us in the house to move. Could the city collect this? Thank you.

    The driveway at this house frequently has cars double parked, and thus blocking the sidewalk.

    There is an abandoned sidewalk foodservice deck here, built during COVID when all the other fabulous decks were built. This one is not in use, I guess the former restaurant closed? It's in terrible disrepair - missing floorboards, and the half-wall / risking closest to the buildings is wobbly, poorly secured and unsafe. It was cheaply built to begin with and now it's also generally full of trash. Why not require the landlord to completely remove it, clean up their mess and TEMPORARILY restore the 5 or 6 metered parking spaces this eyesore and safety hazard displaces? If a bee foodservice tenant occupies - then give the privilege back immediately! Sidewalk dining is awesome. This is not awesome.

    Vahe's garage has been parking multiple cars on the sidewalk. Today the ADA path of travel is completely blocked.
  • Ivy St Cambridge, Massachusetts, 02138 - Neighborhood 9
    I appreciate the trees and that they need care, but the landscapers drive up on the sidewalk (on Garden St, at Ivy) to water them, which both blocks the sidewalk for people walking/in wheelchairs, and holds up/slows down traffic and forces people to drive on the other sidewalk (very unsafe). This is especially worrisome during rush hour and when kids are walking to school - there are a number of school bus stops right on Garden where kids wait.
  • 7-19 Brookline St Cambridge, MA, 02139, USA - Cambridgeport
    The plants partially block the sidewalk. When a line forms here, the line is forced to block the full sidewalk. People must walk in the street to pass the line. This is a hazard to the pedestrians. The plants should not obstruct the public sidewalk.

    It’s election season again in the city and once again people are using city property to post their political signs. Over the last couple of years in particular this phenomena has increased and has also spilled over into other, business related advertising (I’ve personally seen ‘College Hunks Moving’ and Carli Fence Co along with an assortment of construction businesses over the last 18 months).

    These planters are not the homeowners’ or tenants’ personal space- please have the DPW remove these signs as they drive around the city. What people post in their windows, yards, and on their fences is their own business but can we not turn all of our trees and public space into billboards?

    Thank you.
