    Request to have a Do Not Block painted on Jefferson Ave, at the intersection of Preston Road. This will allow residents in this neighborhood to exit onto Jefferson Ave, when the light is red at the Loring Ave and Jefferson Ave intersection. Thank you!

  • 20 Loring Ave Salem, MA, 01970, USA - City of Salem

    Several pieces of the bike lane barriers along Loring Ave have fallen into the bike lane forcing bikers to quickly swerve out into traffic.

    Not a safe situation.

  • Illegal Dumping Acknowledged
    5 Laurent Rd Salem 01970, United States - City of Salem

    This property has to be looked at ASAP regarding the squalid conditions of the outside of the property. There is 20-30 bags of trash scattered in the front and the overgrowth presents a hazard for first responders needing to enter the house.

    A giant pothole has opened up around a manhole cover near the old Horace Mann school. It's a rim bender for sure.

  • 2-98 Francis Rd Salem, MA, 01970, USA - City of Salem

    There is a homeless camp, which appears to be abandoned on the hill behind the Broad St Playground. There is a lot of trash strewn around the area. There also appears to be medical waste.

    A group of neighbors usually cleans up these sites when they appear, but we are hesitant to do this right now.

    Thank you!

  • Lafayette St Salem, MA, 01970, USA - City of Salem
    There are over 20 residential and company sidewalks on Lafayette Street right from The beginning of Lafayette to the end of Salem that do not have there sidewalk shoveled. This presents a major hazard for walkers, runners, kids, and anyone for that matter. There is a law in Salem that requires owners to shovel. Who is monitoring this and why are people not being fined? This is a need immediately as I have witnesses people, old and young, slip and fall on these ice patches. Please confirm that action will be taken. Thank you!
  • Jefferson Ave & Loring Ave Salem, MA, 01970, USA - City of Salem
    When can the State or City do something about the traffic signal at the corner of Jefferson and Loring when traveling from Jefferson to Loring toward Swampscott that has the yield sign. Can the signal be turned to the left for the lanes exiting to the left or disconnected or the bulbs removed so that people don't stop if the light is red and no cars coming on Loring Ave. Could some kind of a shroud be placed on the lenses that would shield them from the cars taking a right onto Loring. I've been stopped many times behind vehicles taking a right, but stop because the light is red. It can be very confusing.
  • 1 Castle Rd Salem, MA, 01970, USA - City of Salem
    Sink hole starting in street in front of house
  • Princeton Crossing 12 Heritage Dr, Salem, MA, 01970, USA - City of Salem
    Waste is making its way from Princeton Crossing in to yards below the parking lot where the dumpsters are lined. We had a facemask in our yard the other day. According to ordnance the dumpsters are either supposed to be screened or enclosed, and are not. Please rectify issue.
