  • Bramer Dr Raleigh, North Carolina - Raleigh Council District B

    Torchwood Academy parks its buses (highlighted in red) along Bramer Dr. and obstruct the view of employees leaving the adjacent parking lots.

    The faculty/employees of Torchlight Academy also park along Bramer Dr. and are often far too close to Atlantic Avenue (area highlighted in blue).

    These cars & buses restrict traffic flow along Bramer Dr. and significantly restrict visibility when turning out of adjacent parking lots and when turning left onto Atlantic Avenue from Bramer Dr.

  • 2110 Hopeton Avenue Raleigh, NC 27614, USA - North
    Theses banging noises heard by entire community. Not sure if remote construction noises not inside Bedford. Is it possible Amtrack or Quarry. Sounds like two pieces of sheet metal hitting each other.
  • 2414 Paula Street Raleigh, NC - Five Points
    The Luc Lounge(hip hop/strip club) formerly the Bodi Club has moved to 2414 Paula st which is located approx.75 yards from our neighborhood. Reading archived comments from residents that had to put up with this club when it was located downtown makes me wonder how the city can let a club with so many violations including a couple of homicides move in so close to a neighborhood of kids,working families,home owners etc. We,as a neighborhood already have history with the one nightclub located on Paula st.The el tucanazo bar. History as in,loud music til 2.30 am,gun shots,screaming and yelling patrons of the bar. 2 city council meetings,3 court dates,several citations and yet we still hear the El tucanazo music every night. Now...The Luc Lounge moves in a few doors down and open for business 10.00pm to 6.00 am 7 days a week . That means no sleep for me or some of my neighbors. An officer was at my house just lastnite and told me that the Luc lounge has already had 55 call complaintsl as of June 1st. 55 calls and the city let's this go on? When are the city officials going to start looking out for the residents and home owners of Raleigh and stop putting these law breaking club owners ahead of them? The loud music til 6.00am,gun shots,yelling patrons,loud music from the cars they drive,etc,the entire issue has to be a addressed for the health and well being of the citizens of Raleigh.
  • 702 W Aycock Raleigh, NC - Five Points
    Hi-can the City please help with the issues at this house??? The plumbing project in the front yard has shown no progress since May, when the pile of dirt blocking the sidewalk was finally moved (after months). There is a porta potty there (for a few months now), half blocking the sidewalk and it smells, so effectively IS blocking the sidewalk. Is the porta potty substituting for a bathroom because the owner will not repair the house's water line in from the street? Wouldn't that make this house uninhabitable? Can the certificate of occupancy be suspended or something? Oh and also, the usual standing complaint about the permanent roofing tarps. And a new addition of a stove in the side yard. Thanks, City.
  • 107 West Aycock Street Raleigh, NC 27608, USA - Five Points
    The owner if this house was moved to a nursing home 6or 7 years ago and the house has been vacant since then. Neighbors have reported snakes and rats. The heirs do nothing to maintain the house. I can't imagine what the inside is like. Apparently food was left on counters and in fridge. Thanks
  • 3128 Atlantic Avenue Raleigh, North Carolina - Raleigh Council District B

    As a resident of Brentwood, this walk- and bike-friendly neighborhood feel isolated by the horrible walk- and bike-hostile throughfares of Atlantic Ave. and Capital Blvd. There doesn't seem to be any safe way to get over or under I-440.

    On Atlantic, there is a partial sidewalk that ends just before the overpass and both north and south bound lanes extend to completely occupy the entirety of the roadway. To make matters worse, any areas on the side of the road which might be passable are unaccessible due to the guard rails. As this overpass is at the top of a hill, any bike rider is completely hidden from view to approaching traffic. Cars are moving at 45mph if they’re adhering to the speed limit (and they are often not travelling much faster than this. To be someone on a bike trying to cut through here to get to the Greenway is terrifying and unsafe.

    Anyone who has ever driven on Capital can see why it would be unsafe for bike riders. The number of pedestrians hit by cars near the Capital and Highwoods intersection speaks to the danger of trying to walk along this road due to the volume, speed, and horrible driving.

    With plans for a park in between the north and southbound lanes of Capital near Crabtree Blvd, I think a pedestrian/cycling bridge, tunnel, or some way to safely travel Capital Blvd is needed. At the very least, a safe bike lane along Atlantic or perhaps between Atlantic and the railroad tracks seems overdue.

  • Lowell Ridge Rd Raleigh, NC - Raleigh Council District B
    All of the entrances to Brighton subdivision have street signs that say "Illegally parked and unauthorized vehicles will be towed..." Also all of the stop signs have small signs affixed to the saying "no parking". These signs have been put there by the HOA. The streets in Brighton subdivision are not private streets so the HOA has no authority to put up or enforce any parking restrictions on what are city streets. Please have the HOA remove all such signs They do not have the authority to put them up and they do not have the authority to enforce them.

  • 4200 Quail Hollow Drive Raleigh, North Carolina - Falls Of Neuse

    In the Eastgate Park playground, there is a set of steps for the younger children's playset that is dangerous. Picture attached. The steps are uneven (by design) with drop off and no railings. For steps meant for younger children that don't yet have good stability this is incredibly dangerous. Although I know the parks staff chooses certified safe equipment, this particular piece amazes me as it seems dangerous by design.

    Does anyone else feel these stairs are inherently dangerous and in need of replacement?

    Btw, beyond this, all the playground equipment seems great.

  • Falls Of Neuse raleigh, NC - North
    PLEASE correct the timing of the light to turn left from Falls of Neuse Road onto Old Falls of Neuse Road. Although there are two left hand turn lanes, the backups are now huge (at all times of the day) in those lanes as the light takes forever to allow a left hand turn. This has only recently started to happen over the last few weeks. Thank you!
