    2 town street lamps in front of Sherwood Plaza have not worked in years. The lamps have been replaced but it may not be receiving power. This is on Rt. 9 east approaching the Speen St. offramp.

    At both the Honey Farms and the building on the other side of Whalen trash trucks are coming for pickup prior to 7am, which breaks noise ordinances for the town

    Good afternoon -

    I am a regular user of the ramp from Speen street onto RT 9 Eastbound. It probably is no news to you that there are frequency accidents on that merge as well as daily congestion resulting from people coming to a complete stop and not matching the ongoing traffic as they merge.
    The reason is that there is not enough space to merge and have incoming traffic at the same time.
    If I may, I have two thoughts in mind to remedy the issue, and Natick's DPW can readily implement them at very little cost:

    1. Solution 1: shortly prior to the bridge on RT9 Eastbound, draw appropriate lines to encourage the traffic to move to the left, to accommodate for the traffic merging from Speen onto RT9.

    2. Solution 2: shortly after the bridge on RT 9, draw arrows on the right lane, telling drivers on RT9 to move to the left lane due to merging traffic ahead. A bit like arrows one sees on the MassPike when the merge lane ends.

    Thank you for looking into this. It's a major problem with a simple solution that can be implemented quickly.

    Playground at Murphy playground has large stakes sticking out of ground for kids to trip on. Also no sand in sandpit.
  • 12 Shady Oak Ln Natick, MA - Natick
    There is significant water pooling at the street on Shady oak lane due to drop in level of asphalt in front of 12 Shady Oak lane. There is also loss of asphalt height around a drain at the corner of Shady Oak Lane and Madonna Rd which results in significant water pooling and street flooding with every rainstorm. Can you please investigate and repair the street?
  • 32 Leach Lane Natick, Massachusetts - Natick
    A long stretch of the curb in front of our house has been completely destroyed by the town snow plows (we heard it, and the damage showed up after the last heavy snow storm). The gigantic pieces of curb are now on our property and we are unable to move them :(. Some are several feet long. Plow also dug up a strip of our grass. Please help remove the broken curb and replace it. Thank you so much!

    This road is in very bad shape and snow plowing this past winter has made it worse. Needs many broken chunks of pavement removed, and road needs to be re-paved.

    Orchard Street Natick, Massachusetts - Natick
  • Winter Street Natick, MA - Natick
    Winter Street runs into Weston and as soon as you enter Weston the speed limit of 25mph is very visible with 2 signs within 1000 feet. On the Natick side there are "Children", "Dangerous Curve", and "Winter Woods" trail signs but no 25mph speed limit signs. Even Bogle Street off of winter Street has a 25 mph speed limit sign. Winter St is a highly dense populated area with the Rivers School and Brandon School so besides the kids that live in the area there are 2 schools. Not to mention there is a Natick trail "Winter Woods" on Winter Street. Cars fly around blind turns doing well over 40mph constantly. This is very dangerous as there are no sidewalks yet plenty of pedestrians. There should be a minimum of 4 speed limit signs one as you enter Natick from Weston, one on each direction of travel around the "dangerous curve" (which may warrant a lesser speed the 25 mph) and one as you enter Winter St from Oak St. Speed traps would also help.
  • Whittier Rd Natick Ma - Natick
    Today we were very disappointed to receive a notice that our newly paved road will be receiving “chip seal treatment.” This will essentially turn our brand new asphalt road that we’ve waited years for into a rough, bumpy and noisy STONE road. After researching, it is typically reserved for rural roads for these reasons, which ours are not. Bicycles also have a hard time riding on this type of street and there are many kids in our neighborhood. Not only is the noise from cars driving by much louder, but our lawn will be slowly compromised by stones coming off the street as we have no curbs. Yes this is the “cheaper” option for the city, but we pay our taxes to have nice high quality roads to live on. Can you please let us know what can be done about this? Thank you!
