7th District Councilman
Honorable Cynthia I. Newbille

Notified About

  • 2707 E. Marshall Street Richmond, VA - Church Hill
    The brick sidewalk at the corner of 27th and Marshall is in bad shape. A tree root as tore up most of the walkable part between the bakery and the bike shop. There are approximately five businesses on this corner. Lots of foot traffic in the area. Is it possible it can be repaired?
  • 3200 E. Marshall St Richmond, VA - Chimborazo
    In May of 2012 (see http://seeclickfix.com/issues/182470), I reported that the metal wire trash cans had gone missing at the bus stop at the corner of E. Marshall and E. Broad St.. These trash cans were never replaced and this corner (close to two convenience stores and a well-used bus stop) continues to be a huge problem. Bottles, cans, plastic bans often end up on the sidewalk, in the street, and on adjacent properties. Periodically, neighbors place city super cans, bags for the trash, plastic trash cans and people use them. This suggests to me that a trash can would be used and better still a recycling can/trash combo. I understand that the city did not want to replace the metal can as it was probably stolen by recyclers, but it's an important and well-used corner. How about repurposing an underused solar compactor (the one at 25th and E. Broad comes to mine)?
  • 521 N 24th St Richmond, Virginia - Church Hill
    Every time it rains, our corner -- the sidewalk, the street, our yard -- floods because the sewer on the corner (Leigh Street + 24th Street) doesn't drain properly. It's actually been repaired once before, but only cosmetically. We still have this problem; in fact it seems worse.
  • 305 N 26th Street Richmond, Virginia - Church Hill

    This afternoon, I witnessed Romeo LLC owner William R Jones III putting up improper signage in the alleyway next to the mentioned building that states it's a "private alley" and that "violators will be prosecuted".

    Mr. Jones has been told numerous times by local residents and police that the alleyways adjacent to his property is in fact not private and is a public way owned by the City of Richmond.

    The signage is both harassing to local dog owners and illegal per Sections 38-111 through 38-116 of the city of Richmond among other Code sections.

    Please force the removal of the signs immediately.

  • 100 North 28th Street Richmond, Virginia - Church Hill
    The stretch of brick sidewalk on the west side of 28th Street just north of Franklin has become pocked by missing bricks and tree roots. One person has already broken a leg because of this.
  • 1901-1999 U Street Richmond, Virginia - Brauers
    One of the two toddler swings is missing.
  • N. 29th Street Richmond, Virginia - Church Hill
    Glass backboard on the basketball court has been shattered. Broken glass is covering the court -- very dangerous.

    2600 East Marshall Street Rochmond, VA 23223 - Church Hill
    STOP sign down at intersection of 26th & East Marshall St
  • 3310 N Street Richmond, Virginia - Chimborazo
    Two days after the last real rain, the alley is still flooded in a area stretching behind four yards. There is a swampy smell, part rotting leaves and maybe part sewer. This will be mosquito hell in 2 or 3 months. Neighbors say that the water does not dissipate.
