  • Water Issues Acknowledged
    Hazelton Ave. Needham, Massachusetts - Needham

    During heavy rain (most recent Friday Oct 21, 2016...4th time in last 3 years) storm water pools on Hazelton Ave. and eventually runs in one massive rush through the backyard of #31 Hazleton down to Beaufort backyard (including into a swimming pool which then overflows also).

    All in a matter of seconds a giant pond and overflowed swimming pool is left in 3 Beaufort backyards. Homeowners are unable to address this amount of water through any barrier, yard regrading or sump system.

    Storm water from Hazleton and those streets higher up (Arch, Highgate, etc) must be redirected to stay on the streets and not go into yards. Attached map shows flow of water.

  • Lyons Ave. Needham Massachusetts - Dedham
    Cars on Lyons Ave. trying to make a left onto West St. (135) during busy times (7:15am) have to wait too long. The issue is complicated by the glare of the sun. The cars on 135 are traveling at a higher speed and many of them are trying to make a left onto Lyons further jumbling things up and making it particularly difficult. Please have a traffic expert look at this situation. A light was here a few years ago which worked and something is needed to make this safer.
