    Hello,
    Last summer the Parks Department crew installed a beautiful perennial pollinator garden just outside the fence of the Archibald Community Garden on Walnut St (north of Dot's). This garden had some damage after the DPW crew patched the sidewalk, and it is in need of weeding, mulch, and replanting for plants that did not make it over winter.

    A neighbor and I cleared the asphalt left by DPW and started on the weeding. Maintenance from the Parks Department would be greatly appreciated here! Thank you!

  • 205 Archibald Street Burlington, Vermont - Burlington Electric
    As a biker, I have had several biker-driver conflicts on this unsafe section of Archibald street. As you head up the hill, the parking on the street makes the passage too narrow, and cars aggressively try to squeeze by as others are coming down the hill.
    First: please remove parking from this section of Archibald. It is too narrow for on-street parking with the mixed use of bikes and cars.
    Second: please add markings for bike lane, center line, etc. The street seems to be treated like a minor side street with no markings, but it gets heavy use. I believe this is slated as a bike laned street in the new BTV walk/bike plan.
    Thank you!

    The bike lane on East Ave has been totally covered in dirt, gravel, etc. Not sure if the street was swept into the bike lane or if this is just from cars. In combination with all the sewers and potholes in the bike lane and the narrowness of the lane, this is really unsafe. Please sweep the bike lane! Thank you.

    This section of the sidewalk and green belt on Walnut st next to the community garden should be re-done. There is a whole section of the sidewalk missing that floods when it rains, and the green belt has large chunks of an old driveway in it. Please improve this area! Thank you!
  • 56-58 Oak Street Burlington, Vermont - Burlington Electric
    Myers garbage truck was collecting at 6:30 this morning at the Boys and Girls Club on Oak St. This is against the ordinance limiting collection to 7am or later. It is far too loud for this early in the morning. Please help enforce this issue - they should know better.
  • 1-87 Depot Street Burlington, VT 05401, USA - Burlington Electric
    About every other time I walk or bike on Depot St, there is a car driving on it. This is illegal and unsafe. Please install barriers that block cars, allow bikes and pedestrians through, and are removable by emergency vehicles only.
  • 1-9 La Fountain Street Burlington, VT 05401, USA - Burlington Electric
    Vermont's Universal Recycling Law (Act 148) requires that any trash can on public property must also have an accompanying recycling can. This part of the law went into effect on July 1, 2015. Please install permanent recycling cans here and elsewhere as required.

  • 1-9 Lafountain Street Burlington, Vermont - Burlington Electric
    Delivery trucks (including non-refrigerated) arrive early at the Shopping Bag, and park on Lafountain St. near North St. They commonly idle for long periods of time, which violates code 20-55 (e). A no idling sign and/or enforcement at this location would be helpful and much appreciated by our neighborhood. Thank you.
