Notified About

  • 88-90 B St Boston, MA 02127, USA - South Boston
    The upper half of B. Street (heading towards W. Broadway) is constantly dirty. For the life of me I can't figure out why the dumpsters in the housing developments aren't enclosed so that the homeless and others can't rifle through them and leave trash everywhere. As of late it only seems to have gotten worse. Can't these be enclosed?
  • 106 Dorchester Street - South Boston
    must stop the double parking in front of PS deli. this goes on all day long as people stop in the middle of the street to get their coffee. they block the right lane to the green arrow to continue on to east broadway. meter maids n police need to do their jobs! this is a huge problem when it takes 10 minutes to get through perkins square.
  • 736 E 5th St Boston, MA 02127, USA - South Boston
    There are five just between N and O. And there's a couple on N between 6th and 4th. How easy is it to get a handicap spot?
  • 88-90 B St Boston, MA 02127, USA - South Boston
    New graffiti on Sturgis and abutting properties. Trash everywhere on this street from dumpsters, a crazy woman in the West Broadway development that for some reason continues to feed the birds and a new convenience store that promotes throwing food wrappers and scratch tickets all over the street/sidewalk.
  • 1915 William J Day Blvd Boston, MA - South Boston
    the water fountain along Day blvd that intersects with the sugar bowl walkway does not turn off. Water pours out constantly.
  • Filthy Stadium Acknowledged
    460 Old Colony Ave Boston, MA 02125, USA - South Boston
    The field & track @ Saunders stadium is a mess. Not only is there trash and broken glass all about the stadium, but there is also used condoms, knifes as well as feces. Kids use this park as well as adults. Why can't the city spend some time maintaining this place?
  • East Broadway And M - South Boston
    Construction in Southie continues from the summer and will go on into the Winter. Our Officers are great people but Its incredibly frustrating when they are seen on their cell phones- or chatting it up with their fellow workers and failing to pay attention to drivers-there have been numerous close calls especially with St. brigids Catholic School getting out.. This is OUR tax dollars we are paying them and it'd be nice if they paid attention ALL OF THE TIME
  • Dead Skunk Acknowledged
    Head Island Causeway Boston, MA - South Boston
    Dead skunk in the grass, just off the sidewalk
  • 295 K Street - South Boston
    It would be very helpful to have trash bins placed on K Street (especially closest to East Broadway, but also further down the street near Joseph's Bakery). I noticed that there are solar trash bins down near M Street Beach that seem to work very well at controlling litter being thrown on the sidewalk. It would be great if we could keep our streets litter free!!!
  • Cars do not yield Acknowledged
    1408 William J Day Blvd Boston, MA 02127, USA - South Boston
    Cars do not yield to pedestrians in the crosswalk. Those that do have other vehicles whip around them and almost hit pedestrians. This happens regulary. There is speeding, cars running red lights as well as not stopping for pedestrians in the crosswalk on a regular basis. This happens up and down Day Blvd with no traffic enforcement in sight.
  • Crosswalk Acknowledged
    M St And Day Blvd Boston, MA - South Boston
    Noone ever stops and people drive so fast that they can't stop even if they try.
  • 50 B Street Boston, Massachusetts - South Boston

    The dumpster at the public housing at 71 B Street often has trash blowing out of it and when it gets emptied by the trash trucks, the contents of the dumpster get thrown to the street and blown around. Most of that trash ends up in the front area of 50 B Street, including in the street under the curb and in the sewer drains. It also ends up blowing all the way down Gold Street to the dead end.

    We've been putting up with this trash issue for years now and it's not getting any better.

    Here's an album of images of the dumpster, street, trash, and a diagram of the flow of trash:
