  • 290 Northampton Road Amherst, Massachusetts - Amherst
    The 40 MPH speed limit sign is missing from in front of 290 Northampton Road.
  • Street Light Issue Acknowledged
    220 South Pleasant Street Amherst, Massachusetts - Amherst
    The light is entirely out.
  • 750 South East Street Amherst, Massachusetts - South Amherst
    Greetings and felicitations. The pole of the speed limit sign just south of Valley View Drive facing the northbound lane is covered in vegetation up to the bottom edge of the sign, and needs trimming.
  • 138-176 Main Street Amherst, Massachusetts - Amherst
    Greetings and felicitations. Given the number of people I've seen trying to cross Main Street at the east corners of Churchill Street, would you please consider adding a crosswalk there? The crosswalk between the western corners across Main and across Churchill between the northwestern and southwestern corners does not seem to meet the need.
  • 35 Mcclure Street Amherst, Massachusetts - Amherst
    Greetings and felicitations. As of tonight the street sign (only) for McClure Street at North Hadley Road is missing.
  • Parks Issue Archived
    4 Boltwood Ave Amherst, Massachusetts - Amherst
    Greetings and felicitations. As of yesterday evening the town hall's clock had stopped. (I apologize for the categorization--I could find anything more appropriate. I also apologize if the stoppage was deliberate--a quick Web search did not turn up any notice of this.)
  • 5 Blackberry Lane Amherst, Massachusetts - North Amherst
    Greetings and felicitations. As of tonight, the street sign (only) for Grantwood Drive at Blackberry Lane is missing, and the Blackberry Lane sign itself is bent over. (The pole appeared to be fine.)
  • 41 Colonial Court Amherst, Massachusetts - North Amherst
    Greetings and felicitations. As of tonight, the street sign (only) for Colonial Court at Grantwood Drive is missing.
  • 1195 North Pleasant Street Amherst, Massachusetts - North Amherst
    Greetings and felicitations. As of tonight, the speed limit sign (only) nearest the bus stop in front of the Fisher House (on the east side of the street) is missing.
  • 62 Gray Street Amherst, Massachusetts - Amherst

    Greetings and felicitations. The stand of bamboo on the southwest corner of the intersection of Gray and Taylor Streets is overhanging the sidewalk, making it difficult to use. The stand also blocks the view of oncoming traffic from the west. (Gray Street has stop signs on both sides of the intersection, but Taylor Street lacks them, making it a bit dangerous for motorists headed north on Gray.)

    My apologies if I guessed wrong about this report's proper category.

  • 690 South East Street Amherst, Massachusetts - South Amherst
    Greetings and felicitations. In my opinion, the "hill blocks view" sign opposite 691 South East Street, facing the northbound lane should be replaced with a "hidden drive" sign, as there is a newly completed house just the other side of the hill. The latter sign would be more on point and warn drivers of the more specific hazard. (I've had the "pleasure" of trying to exit that house's driveway without being involved in a collision.)
  • North Pleasant Street At Triangle Street Amherst, Massachusetts - Amherst
    Greetings and felicitations. As of yesterday the street sign for North Pleasant Street at Triangle Street was missing, and the pole was bent over. The pole was already tagged with a high visibility ribbon, so someone seems to already know about this, but a search of issues here a moment ago did not turn it up.
  • 35 North Whitney Street Amherst, Massachusetts - Amherst
    Greetings and felicitations. As of just over an hour ago one of the large, yellow, triangular "No Parking" signs and its pole are leaning against a tree just south of the railroad tracks where they cross North Whitney Street. The sign and pole look otherwise intact, though I did not stop, but only drove by them. Hopefully they just need to be reinstalled, not replaced.
  • Mount Pleasant Street At East Pleasant Street Amherst, Massachusetts - Amherst
    Greetings and felicitations. Both the street sign and the stop sign at this intersection, one on each side of the end of Mount Pleasant Street, are nearly overgrown by vegetation--please trim it. (This time I checked all of the options, and "Tree and Grounds - Other" seems to be the closest description. My apologies if this is a "Sign" issue.)
  • 25 North University Drive Amherst, Massachusetts - Amherst
    Greetings and felicitations. As of tonight the sign (only) for North University Drive at Amity Street is missing. (Yes, there are two missing signs. I don't recall if Amity Street had a sign or signs at this intersection, but if it did, there is no sign of them now.)
  • Pine Grove At Old Farm Road Amherst, Massachusetts - Amherst
    Greetings and felicitations. The sign pole for the street sign for Pine Grove was knocked over this past winter, and has since disappeared, along with the sign.
  • Woodlot Road At Teaberry Lane Amherst, Massachusetts - Amherst
    Greetings and felicitations. As of last night the sign for Woodlot Road at Teaberry Lane was missing.
  • Shumway Street At College Street Amherst, Massachusetts - Amherst
    Greetings and felicitations. As of last night the sign for Shumway Street at College Street, including the pole, was missing.
  • Triangle Street At Main Strreet Amherst, Massachusetts - Amherst
    Greetings and felicitations. The street light on Triangle Street nearest the intersection with Main is out. The identification number is 17K4-13.
  • Elm Street At Sunset Avenue Amherst, Massachusetts - Amherst
    Greetings and felicitations. As of tonight, the sign, including its pole, for Elm Street at Sunset Avenue is missing.
