  • Ne Boulevard Gainesville, FL, 32601, USA - 311GNVPolice Sector 3
    Storm debris and runoff from streets & parking lots has gradually accumulated in the duck pond again. Will the City please schedule a cleanup for the pond? Residents try to scoop out items with pool skimmers, but the height of the birm makes this difficult and rather unsafe.

    614 Ne 5th Ave Gainesville, Florida - 311GNVPolice Sector 3
    Reported several days ago with photo, but the sign is still down. This report adds that it is directly across the street from 614 NE 5th Ave.

    Ne 6th Pl At Ne 7th St Gainesville, Florida - 311GNVPolice Sector 3
    This pothole (recurring) has been temporarily filled with sand and gravel, but there are red paint marks around it that hint that the section of pavement will be replaced. Can you tell us whether this is so—and when this might occur?
  • Ne 5th Ave West Of 7th St Gainesville, Florida - 311GNVPolice Sector 3
    Sign needs to be erected properly.
  • Ne 5th Ave And Ne Boulevard Gainesville, Florida - 311GNVPolice Sector 3
    Boston ferns regularly overgrow the narrow sidewalk on the south side of NE 5th Ave just east of the Boulevard intersection. There shouldn’t be any ferns in that area at all because they create a hazard along with thick dry leaves. If this isn’t intended to be used as a sidewalk, then perhaps the concrete should be removed??
  • Ne 7th St At Ne 5th Ave Gainesville, Florida - 311GNVPolice Sector 3
    Dark corner—streetlight not coming on
  • Ne 7th St. And Ne 8th Ave Gainesville, Florida - 311GNVPolice Sector 3
    This "We Hang Holiday Lights" sign located on the SW corner of the intersection may be of interest to some residents, but I assume there are regulations concerning commercial signs intended to solicit business being placed on public property. There was at least one other of these signs--over by the 5th Ave. side of the Duckpond--and probably more. If every business did this, our intersections would get cluttered pretty quickly, wouldn't they?
  • 120 Southeast 7th Street Gainesville, Florida - 311GNVPolice Sector 4
    The stop sign on the NW corner of this intersection is difficult to see until a driver is quite close to it. Residents are clearly not going to keep it trimmed, and the fast-growing palmetto that is the culprit SHOULD be moved. Why should this have to be reported over and over?

    A gray Dumpster is parked close to a stop sign at NE 5th Ave. and NE 6th St. in such a way that nighttime visibility is very poor. This is an accident waiting to happen.

    500 Southeast 7th Street Gainesville, Florida - 311GNVPolice Sector 4
    Road work removed pavement surface and left a dirt and rock-filled square area that now has fist-sized rocks in a depression that is a noticeable dropoff for vehicles hitting it.
  • 2160 Ne 31st Ave Gainesville, FL, Gainesville, Florida - 311GNVPolice Sector 3
    (Really, you need an issue category called: "Homeless Campsite".) Despite the proximity of Dignity Village, several bedsites with sleeping bags, clothing, etc. have now appeared on the EAST side of the ditch beside the Waldo Rail/Trail. These are visible from the trail. It is across the street from the area between Nature's Own store and ABC roofing supplies. This whole corridor has become a suburb of Dignity Village and the Grace Marketplace. Sometimes, almost every bench along the trail is occupied by sleepers, loafers, and drinkers. It's a shame that this well-intentioned effort to provide a place to feed and house the homeless has been ignored by some who insist upon creating their own campsites elsewhere.
  • 1540 Ne Waldo Rd Gainesville, Florida - 311GNVPolice Sector 3
    Just to the SE of the StorterChilds printing co., between the sidewalk and street on the WEST side of N. Waldo Rd, there is a fire hydrant that appears to have been upended by a large vehicle. The hydrant is lying on its side, but there is no warning tape or cone nearby, so it doesn't seem to be a work area. Although there is no water leak, I assume the city would want to put the hydrant back onto its pipe.

    Ne 5th Avenue At Ne 7th Street Gainesville, Florida - 311GNVPolice Sector 3
    The stop sign on the NE side of the intersection usually has a very helpful white stripe painted on the pavement next to it. Now, the line is almost totally invisible, and this is a blind intersection that needs a visible warning besides the sign.
  • 421 Southeast 1st Avenue Gainesville, Florida - 311GNVPolice Sector 4
    Homeless bedding/debris has accumulated in the palmettos between the Sweetwater Branch on E. University Ave., adjacent to flags by the Matheson History Museum. The prison workers removed palmettos fronds today, but the trash remains.

    This may be nothing, but this Sanitary Sewer manhole cover has water rushing noise under it. In 30 yrs of passing by this sewer cover, I've never heard the sound of running water before, making me wonder if there's an unusual leak nearby.
  • 901-999 Northeast 7th Street Gainesville, Florida - 311GNVPolice Sector 3
    Drivers approaching the SE corner of NE 7th St and 10th Ave. have trouble seeing around the vegetation at this stop sign. Because this corner has DETOUR traffic traveling west on NE 10th Ave. and turning left (south) onto NE 7th St., the impatient turners tend to cut the corner very close. Since the northbound drivers on NE 7th St. cannot see around the vegetation at the stop sign, the corner-cutting detour traffic comes perilously close. Vegetation trimming needed here!
  • 722 Ne 3rd St. Gainesville, Florida - 311GNVPolice Sector 3
    This new-looking yellow school bus with all identifying words covered with tape and NO LICENSE TAG on the back is currently parked at the curb in front of 722 NE 3rd St. and was seen parked in front of 410 NE 7th St. yesterday, 7/9. Can vehicles without tags be parked on city streets (??).
  • 5-91 Southeast Depot Avenue Gainesville, Florida - 311GNVPolice Sector 4
    There is no reason why the mobile warning sign in the middle of SE Depot Ave. east of S. Main roundabout should already (prematurely) mention a detour at SE 7th Ave because no work is being done and there are no detour signs ahead! If they MUST warn people of upcoming construction, why not put an activation DATE on the sign like they do on other warning signs? The current warning must also be very confusing for people who are not familiar with the way Depot Ave. becomes SE 7th Ave. east of 7th St.
  • Waldo Road And Ne 39th Ave. Gainesville, Florida - 311GNVPolice Sector 3
    What looks like a large underground box was replaced at the SE corner of the intersection of Waldo Rd. and NE 39th Ave. The dirt pile and previous box have been left behind for at least 2 weeks.
