  • 318 Essex ropes garden, City of Salem, MA - City of Salem

    I was just out with my dogs, walking along the church side of the garden wall. There are 5 vagrants using all the benches. There is one man drinking beer and another smoking something out of a small pipe while a family tries to enjoy the garden with a small child.

    Something must be done about this situation. This is terrible for tourists to see, and neighbors have this 24/7.

(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

  • 115 Mason Street Salem, Massachusetts - City of Salem
    Sheet of Ice, unable to stop at stop sign. Corner of Mason Street diagonally from the Moose Lodge. Slide right through. Very dangerous.
  • Bell Apartments On Bridge Street Salem, Massachusetts - City of Salem
    This spot has still not been cleared. It's a crosswalk that's normally very used and hasn't been all week. Our kids can't get to their school bus stop. Terribly dangerous and being completely ignored.
  • 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.
  • Butler St Salem, Massachusetts - City of Salem
    There has been an increase in cars speeding down Butler St towards Ord St. There are cars that seem to be going well over 30 MPH. There is a stop sign at the end of the street that has become optional to these fast moving cars as well.
  • 56 Forrester Street Salem, Massachusetts - City of Salem
    Drug dealer located in this building. Why can't the police do anything about this?
  • 75 Willson Street Salem, Massachusetts - City of Salem

    I am concerned about the regular, INTENTIONAL feeding of junk food to wildlife that has been going on for years in the driveway of Olde Salem Greens Golf Course. I have reported this issue to Park & Recreation and to Golf Course staff, to no avail. Today's "offering" is a 15 foot long swath of bread, crackers or chips, pink heart candy, popcorn, and chocolate bars.

    The problem with leaving this food out is multifold.
    1) It is unsightly litter.
    2) It is an unnatural and unhealthful diet for wildlife. Feeding the wrong diet to deer can kill them. Feeding bread to waterfowl causes deadly angel wing disease.
    3) It attracts and creates nuisance animals - rats, raccoons, coyotes. It is well-known that feeding coyotes habituates them to people, leading to potentially dangerous interactions between coyotes and pets or even people.
    4) This is a popular dog-walking spot, and this food is unhealthful and potentially toxic to dogs.

    Would you please speak with the nice gentleman who I believe lives across the street and I believe is the person feeding wildlife on city property, and ask him to stop. Thank you.

  • Washington Street Salem, Massachusetts - City of Salem
    Coming from Canal St to turn to Mill St not working,arrow wont turn green, set in traffic for ever... also will do the same sometimes coming from East Washington St to go straight to Mill St. Please fix. Getting out of work is becoming frustrating dealing with traffic and now on top of it the traffic lights too.
  • Hospital Entrance At Jefferson Ave Salem, Massachusetts - City of Salem
    This area was torn up a couple of years ago and never put back to normal, leaving large dips and raises along with potholes. The stretch from the hospital entrance to the DPW is a mess and really needs to be re-paved. The railroad tracks themselves have raised up as well and it is a hazardous bump now. Have already called the Engineer office and the DPW and both say they know it is an issue but it is not up to be fixed. Mayor Driscoll said in her FYI Salem newsletter to report such issues here.
  • Highland Ave Salem, Massachusetts - City of Salem
    Many people have requested information on repairs to Highland Ave and Boston St. The answer is always its been assigned. Today a new sidewalk is being put down in front of NSMC. The condition of the road creates a clear danger to people on the sidewalk so why are we not fixing the roads? It would be really nice if someone can answer this with an intelligent response with a timeline. Please. The section in question is the city's and has been in horrendous condition for over 5 years. If your answer is we are waiting on the state then please give updates on that process. I pay taxes to the city and state so provide some details.
