Construction is taking place after 11 pm and it's very loud. The crew showed up around 5 pm and began tearing up the street. Why don't they schedule this for daytime hours? This neighborhood has been enduring nonstop construction for months (years in fact) and overnight work should not be allowed.
New gas meter located on street side of house. Should have been installed at side. Sidewalk clearance does not meet ADA requirements. The posts infringe on required minimum clearance for handicapped use of sidewalk. This complaint was previously ignored. I will file a formal grievance regarding Americans With Disabilities Act if the meters and pipes are not relocated in the very near future
Location of new gas meter violates Americans With Disabilities Act. And ice is forming (as it always does) due to failed gutter draining across sidewalk. Trip hazard. Repeated issues not being addressed. Super dangerous both issues
Vehicles are allowed to park on Clark Street all the way to the apron of the Dermot Court HOmeowner's Association parking lot. When leaving the lot (as this picture shows) it is impossible to clear on-coming traffic. Last week there was an oversized pick-up truck park in this spot all week and there was no way to see down the street to exit the parking lot. There used to be a sign limiting parking for the last 8-10 feet so you can visibility to turn out into the street but that sign has been gone for awhile now.
We continue to see Taylor Street Park being inundated by 20-40 basketball players on a nightly basis..one neighbor witnessed a fight last night resulting in a person punching a car window. EVERY night the players arrive to block driveways, yell obscenities', and leave trash on the courts and near their cars before they leave. Most of the adjacent home owners close windows from April to the fall due to the constant yelling in the evening from the same group of basketball players. Why do we have overutilization of a small pocket park when other basketball courts (Deering oaks, for instance, with double the baskets) have less residential density and are under utilized? We regularly see 10-20 cars park on this street (blocking driveways, idling for hours) between 6-10 pm...on a street that already is crowded by tenant and owners seeking their own spots at night. Calling the non emergency police line which many of us have done has had no impact. Please consider how best to recalibrate a clearly disproportionate negative use of the basketball courts against the residential character and desires for a peaceful park by the residents and neighbors on the street.

There are several cars parked in the Reiche Community School parking lots without permit stickers in their windows. Teachers are now back in school full time and do not have adequate spaces to park. Thanks for enforcing the parking restrictions here at Reiche!

On June 21 i submitted a report of an abandoned vehicle on Danforth Street. Blue Chevy van, historical vehicle plates. Based on the response the vehicle should have been removed by the city two days ago. It's still here. When can we expect it to be towed away?
To whomever made the kind offer to mediate the matter of the wayward contractors on Dow Street, thank you. I would write you directly but you did not give a name, and your email looks like Spam. You're right, no point involving taxpayer money having parking agents or police involved. If you would be so kind as to simply contact Tim Gebhardt at Gebhardt Property Management on Brackett Street, and ask him to tell his contractors not to park illegally all day, or dump construction debris in the gardens next to his condo project at 20 Dow Street, then we can consider the matter closed. Thank you again for your kind offer to help.
