22 Beacon St Natick, MA, 01760, USA - NatickAt 11pm(ish) on December 1, 2019, while clearing streets during the first "snowstorm" of the season, a snow plow driver lost control of his/her vehicle and destroyed a meaningful chunk of my mature (and not inexpensive) holly bush. Along the way, and not incidentally to this taxpaying citizen, he/she damaged 30 feet worth of town-owned curbstone and left a deep gash in the town-owned grass that borders my sidewalk. I have follow-up photos that tell the whole story of what was left post-snow-melt aftermath -- including the ankle-breaking/lawsuit-inviting hazard presented by the torn-out chunk of terrain, as well as the mitigating (and not inexpensive) measures that I took to prevent such a liability to the town. Most tragically, I have photos of the torn-up holly roots of a hedge that has served long and well as a friendly and fruit-bearing border to neighborhood passersby. I look forward to discussing this situation with the Town of Natick.
W Central St & High St Natick, MA, 01760, USA - Natick
We noticed that Forest and HIgh have now been made one way streets. The issue is with signage.
THe one way sign on West Central St on the corner of high street is obscured by a tree and not visible when driving west bound on W. Central St. This is creating a public safety issue as cars are turning the wrong way down the one way street since the sign is not visible. One needs to be placed on the other corner.

313 Speen St Natick, MA 01760, USA - NatickSince this was repaved last week, it takes an act of God for the left turn arrow to sense a vehicle and activate. Can someone take a look please? Traffic is constantly backed up like this. And when it does activate, it's for 5 seconds.
9 N Main St Natick 01760, United States - NatickNew to community, there is no way to have known about parking restrictions and had both my cars towed overnight due to snow fall. There should be a visual or audible way of informing residents of parking bans in place. Maybe a flashing blue light on the corners of major streets to inform of parking ban in place.
119 Worcester Street Natick, Massachusetts - NatickAt intersection of Oak and Rt 9, Lane markings on Oak st are barely visible, and when raining, not visible at all. Heading S, one has no idea what lanes are where.
150 Walnut St Natick, Massachusetts - NatickLots of trash on Walnut St near the town forest.
2-8 Florence Street Natick, Massachusetts - NatickIn March there were no parking anytime signs put on the entire street of Florence st. This has become a major inconvenience for residents. There were rarely any cars parked on Florence st prior to the signs being put up. The general consensus of residents of Florence street is that the signs were put up a result of moving trucks being parked over night that were moving tenants out of the 58 North street apartments.
All the streets that run parallel to Florence street ie: Franklin St, Sawin St, and Tibbets St either have no signs, 2 or 4 hour parking signs. I would like to request that these signs be removed or changed to no overnight parking or 4 hour parking like the rest of the signs in the neighborhood.

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.
