    Gate on south side of dog park has twisted hinge as a result of being hit by something Dogs can get out through the resulting wider opening in the gate.

    The solution is simple: just straighten the hinge out, which is on the round (east) post.

    The dog park is a tremendous success, but needs either grass seed or some other covering (sand, pebbles) as a large portion is just mud or clay.
  • Main Street And South Prospect Street Burlington, Vermont - Burlington Electric
    Southbound on South Prospect St., the left arrow goes on but the straight arrow stays red when there is apparently no reason that traffic shouldn't go. (If there are pedestrians crossing the south side of Main St. and S. Prospect St., that would be a good reason, but there were not). It would improve traffic flow if the straight green arrow did not have to have a separate cycle.

    Pedestrian crossing button out-of-order.

    You folks obviously know about this problem as the crossing light is now on a timed schedule, but that results in stopping traffic unnecessarily.

    How about a couple of loads of pebbles or sand?

    The wonderful dog park is mud for twenty-five feet from the entrance.

    Two fire hydrants near dog park.

    It would great to have a spigot for the dogs. Since there is water there already...

  • Sidewalks Acknowledged
    South Prospect And Pearl St Burlington, Vermont - Burlington Electric

    There is no sidewalk--just mud and ice--to access pedestrian crossing button on the north corner of North Prospect Street and Colchester Avenue.

    There should be a sidewalk and it should be cleaned.

    Right turn arrow goes off when straight arrow on Main St. goes on, even when there is no pedestrian traffic. The result slows traffic into Burlington unnecessarily.
