Anything you deem a mess or needs to be fixed

Notified About

  • 35 Flint Street #304 Salem, Massachusetts - City of Salem
    The newly paved sections of Flint St do not dovetail smoothly into previously existing pavement, especially at the intersections. There is a serious crack and ridge at intersections of Flint with Bridge, Federal and Essex Streets. The one at Essex and Flint is particularly bad, and will cause damage to car tires and rims as it gets worse. I had assumed the problem would be rectified by now, but nothing has happened, so I'm thinking you're not aware of the problem.
  • 23 E Collins St Salem MA 01970, USA - City of Salem
    large amount of rubbish and bowls of food left out in yard. large uptick in rodents and nuisance wildlife in neighborhood.
  • 68 Essex St Salem, MA 01970, USA - City of Salem
    This busy street has just one official crosswalk on this stretch of road, and the lines are very faint! It hasn't been painted in years. People cross here all the time to get to the common (including many children and dogs) and drivers whiz by very quickly. Please please please repaint the lines, and maybe add more for visibility (like the green paint that's in other crosswalks). Signage would also help.
  • 98 Collins Street Salem, Massachusetts - City of Salem
    There's tons of broken glass strewn all over Collins Cove beach. Kids are going to get hurt in the sand. Is there a plan for the city to help with pick up? We're doing what we can. I don't want to see anyone get hurt.
  • 53 Highland Street Salem, Massachusetts - City of Salem
    I am re-posting with the correct addresses, they are from 51 to 59 Highland st. again tonight I had to walk in the street! (I am Disabled with knee replacement in April, I can not run from and dodge cars when I am forced to walk in the street every night for years, All the cars here park on the sidewalk. They got ticketed once but still park "on the sidewalk so your forced to walk in the street! Its on the Salem side of Highland st. and it not like they don't have a driveway because they do! SPD needs to start ticketing these cars. I was nearly hit by a car trying to walk my dog in the street around all the cars on the sidewalk! Apparently the law does not apply to these people!) https://www.municode.com/library/ma/salem/codes/traffic?nodeId=SATRORSAMA_ARTVPA

  • 12 Gifford Ct Salem Ma - City of Salem
    It is going to take a bucket loafer to clear the road. My cars are blocked in and cannot get out. We have been stuck since the storm.
  • City Wide Salem, Massachusetts - City of Salem
    It appears the city wide paving will end in a few days leaving many streets unfinished with raised areas at the end of each street as well as driveways. Man holes on Jackson St are 4 inches below grade. City plows will get destroyed this winter as will many cars. This is a disgrace and someone should be held accountable. Why has the paving schedule of 4 weeks failed?
  • Essex St. Salem, Massachusetts - City of Salem

    walk-up scam near Essex St.

    Petite brown-haired female in early twenties scamming passerby's asking for enough money to get a gallon of gas to get her home. She will ask for phone to call her 'mother' and speak with a 978 number for less than 2 minutes. She'll ask about using your AAA service and promises to pay you back any cash you can spare when her mother comes with her wallet. She comes off as innocent and sweet, very apologetic, just needs a few dollars but she's really scamming you.

  • Traffic Signals Acknowledged
    457-461 Lafayette St Salem, MA, 01970, USA - City of Salem
    Flashing light for people walking the bike path to cross Lafayette close to the lead mills and Salem/Marblehead line. Unfortunately drivers completely ignore the light. We get halfway across when one side of traffic stops but people speed through on the other side, nearly hitting us. This should be a full traffic light, not a flashing orange light.
  • Pot hole Archived
    Bridge St Salem, Massachusetts - City of Salem
    Pot hole on the north bound lane across from coffee time. Blew my tire out, and I was only doing 15 mph.
    Am I mad as heck, you bet I am!
    This was caused by a private contractor installing utilities. Not by Verizon or nat grid, they almost always do a good job repairing their work.
    The city needs to crack down on these private contractors getting paid to dig up OUR TAX PAID ROADS, then doing a crappy job of repaving!
    If they dig it up, and don't do a quality repair, they should be fined, and made to fix, or no more permits allowed in this town.
  • 1 Commercial St Salem 01970, United States - City of Salem
    Six post lights along the river walkway are out or had the tops broken. It makes it unsafe to walk after dusk. This walkway is a mess. You would think the businesses along here would take some pride.
