  • 109 Seawell Ave Raleigh, NC - North Central
    Hello,
    This is a follow-up from a post that was made last year about 109 Seawell Ave. Since the City responded last year and closed the ticket, there has only been only 3-4 instances where someone comes to work on the house to improve its condition. I was fine with it until I noticed two different times that someone was checking out the house and investigating how to get into it. I know who owns the home and it was not the owner who was investigating the entry points. It was a man that frequently walks in the neighborhood with a black duffle bag who appears to be experiencing homelessness. I would much rather this man receive assistance to find a safe place to live and not have to find an abandoned house to shelter him. Please let me know if anything can be done to improve this structure. It has been abandoned and in disrepair since the tornado of 2011. Thank you for your time.
  • 1607 New Bern Avenue Raleigh, North Carolina - North Central
    The Beauty Mall has caged in the sidewalks on their building. I think this could be a fire hazard as it impacts the egress from the building during an emergency. Additionally wood pallets are often left in the front of the building after shipments are received.

    Homeless Vagrants are Loitering on benches next to the entrance to Moore Square Transit Station

    There is no Bus stop in this location
    ( ~148 East Martin Street) so people have no right
    to illegally loiter here - note that the
    Moore Square Transit Station's blue signs with
    "no excessive malingering" applies here

  • King Charles Raleigh, NC - East Raleigh

    For months, the King Charles neighborhoods in Raleigh (Lockwood, Gatewood, Longview Gardens, Windsor Park, etc.) have been overrun with stray and loose dogs. Many neighbors (and children and dogs on leashes) have been attacked while walking or even just in their own yards. People walk carrying clubs and sticks because the encounters are so frequent. Animal Control has been notified many times in the last two years, yet the situation has not improved. Multiple neighbors report that when they call Animal Control, officers show up to pick up dogs that are sitting or laying in yards, and when the dogs move a few feet away, they shrug and leave. Meanwhile, negligent dog owners let their pets out to run the neighborhoods, or keep their fences in such disrepair that the dogs come and go as they please.

    Four dogs have been in the emergency room as a result of attacks by a regularly escaping St. Bernard at 2263 Rumson Rd., and the same dog has attacked children and families on the Greenway, as well as neighbors walking on the street.

    Two pit bulls and a rottweiler regularly escape from homes at the dead end of Brighton Rd near Millbank and have repeatedly attacked neighbors, children, and walking dogs.

    There is a boxer mix that lives on Somerset Road between Plymouth and Crabtree who is routinely allowed to run loose in the neighborhood.

    There are two German shepherds running wild on Millbank today (Animal Control has been notified, as always), and dozens of other dogs have approached myself and other neighbors on the street in the last few months. The same dogs are allowed to "escape" their yards or homes regularly, and if Animal Control catches them, they end up back outdoors again within a week.

    Enough is enough. DO SOMETHING besides showing up with a leash in hand and hoping the dogs will be agreeable about leaving the neighborhood.

  • Bike Rack Archived
    227 South Wilmington Street Raleigh, North Carolina - Central
    There needs to be a bike rack at the entrance to Moore Square Parking Deck. Some type of rack that could hold dozens would be awesome, as there are bikes hitched to every pole and staircase in the area. Thank you.
  • Raleigh Blvd And Barksdale Rd Raleigh, NC - East Raleigh

    Clearer signs and/or pavement markings are needed at the intersection of Raleigh Blvd and Barksdale Dr. There are two distinct left turn lane opportunities on northbound Raleigh Blvd that are very close to one another. One is for turning left (westbound) to Barksdale, and the next is for turning left (west) on Crabtree. Frequently, a driver headed north on Raleigh Blvd gets into the left turn lane before Barksdale and continues straight through the Raleigh/Barksdale intersection, assuming that it is the turn lane for Crabtree. If drivers make this assumption, they run the risk of a head-on collision, because they will drive right through the southbound left turn lane onto Barksdale Dr. On Saturday, a driver nearly hit me head-on as I was waiting to turn left (east) on Barksdale. Fortunately, this driver was able to swerve just in time, but in doing so almost hit the another car in the next lane. It was very scary because there was no way I could have avoided getting hit by this oncoming car if they had not been able to get over.

    Perhaps updated pavement markings and/or a concrete median would help drivers realize that they cannot get into the left turn lane for Crabtree early. Thanks for taking a look at this!

  • 612 Barksdale Dr Raleigh, NC 27610, USA - East Raleigh
    Too many vehicles park along 812 Barksdale Drive, often in violation and within 25 feet of two intersections at Rumson Rd. & Raleigh Blvd. Traffic is already heavy due to a bus stop directly across the street at 813 Barksdale, a steep hill, pedestrian foot traffic to the nearby Buckeye Greenway and many vehicles entering/exiting Raleigh Blvd. at this intersection. The addition of street-parked vehicles creates dangerous congestion and can often block traffic from Raleigh Blvd. to Rumson Rd. Please erect No Parking signs along this block of Barksdale to prevent accidents and improve the street's congestion.
  • 809 Edmund Street Raleigh, North Carolina - East Raleigh
    New construction has recently turned this two-way intersection into a four-way intersection. No stop signs have been put up on any of the four corners. Construction vehicles (cement trucks, dump trucks, tractors, etc) drive through the new intersection without regards to any oncoming traffic. I live near this intersection and have almost been hit multiple times while trying to leave my neighborhood. This is a serious safety issue. There needs to be stop signs at this intersection asap, preferably a four-way stop!

  • Royal Dornaoch Drive Raleigh, NC - Raleigh Council District C

    Hedingham subdivision is full of no parking signs that have been errected by the HOA. The sreets in Hedingham (with the exception of a couple of townhome portions are property of the city, they are not private streets. Therefore any no parking signs errected by the HOA in the public right of way (which all of the signs are) are in violation of by the city's sign ordinance. Streets that have these illegal no parking signs are Royal Dornoch Drive, Royal Troon Drive, Royal Adelaide Way, Oak Tree Way, Liverpool Lane, Ellsmere Lane, and several more. There are so many, it's difficult to name them all. These are not private streets and the HOA has no business trying to enforce parking restrictions on public property. Please have them remove all of the no parking signs that are on the public right of way (which is all of them).
