    I called this vehicle in to the non emergency police line over an hour ago. I don’t think this building management or Cambridge is taking the continued illegal parking here seriously. 2 hours later, there are now 3 vehicles parked illegally. They must think the cones mean special contractor parking.

    There’s no city parking, handicap on this whole street! Then you can’t park at danehy park or fresh pond because of the fear getting towed at night.

    Can we please get some resident (City of Cambridge) signs up or parking at danehy overnight?

    I’m a elderly woman who can’t walk far looking for parking all the time.

    Appreciated

    Thank you!

    White caravan still parked with Wong visitor permit since November 2019. Hasn't moved once so violating visitor permit regs along with wrong permit for area, also parked in bike line. Numberous complaints to city with no results. Flagged down a traffic Dept enforcement officer on Wednesday and was told car would be booted. No boot yet! Who do you need to know in Cambridge to get this addressed? I've lived in this city all my life, 40 plus years and this side stepping and avoidance to address this issue is ridiculous. A police officer was also on site when the traffic Dept person was there an assured the police officer this would be addressed! If I have a friend come by and drop off something they get a ticket but this car is magically ignored!?

    There is never enough parking in front of Lamplighter or Longfellows. Could you please add a rack or better yet, a whole bike corral!

    Thank you!

  • Dana Park Cambridge, Massachusetts - Cambridgeport
    there are a few issues to address at Dana Park
    - the paint on many gates and posts is peeling very bad
    - the rubber pavement where the water park will be this summer is raised on some of the perimeter and kids keep tripping on it
    - the spinning playground equipment next to the sandbox area is stuck and does not spin anymore, somehow the mechanism is not working, can someone check on that?
    thanks in advance, it is a beautiful park and it's worth keeping it in good shape
  • 160-170 Broadway Cambridge, Massachusetts - The Port

    Another day, another tractor trailer parked in the bike lane on Broadway. Yes yes, I called CPD. Unfortunately the driver saw me standing there and took off, so CPD's dispatcher didn't really care to record the issue, so here we are. Hooray for citizen action keeping road users safe, but we really shouldn't need to be doing that.

    Again, can something be done to physically prevent trucks from parking in the bike lane here? As we've all learned, abstinence doesn't really work. If you want to avoid major issues you really need to protect users.

    150 Cambridge Park Drive Cambridge, Massachusetts - North Cambridge

    Hello,

    I'm writing this to share my true ire towards what you have let happen on Cambridge Park Drive. The city has continued to allow massive buildings and apartment complexes to be built on this road fully knowing there is only ONE way to get out of that road and also know that the ONE way to get out of that road is a true and utter disaster to say the least. What you have done here is create a situation that is unsafe and is legitimately ruining peoples lives. I work at 150 Cambridge Park drive and I have to park in the parking garage that is now there. It has consistently been taking me 45 minutes to get out of my parking garage and to the lights at the Summer Shack. Honestly, you had to see that coming and you should be ashamed of yourselves that you knowingly allowed all of this building to continue knowing full well that it was going to be more than a nightmare to all of us that work or live down in this area. I already have a 45 minute commute as is, so I don't appreciate the fact that it's taking me 45 minutes just to go 1/10 of a mile to get to the intersection where it then takes me another 45 minutes to get home. I'm utterly disappointed and disgusted with the judgement and decisions the city of Cambridge made. The outcome is that you've basically ruined our work weeks even more and we really don't appreciate it. And that's not to mention that you've caused a severe emergency and fire hazard because if there was anything bad to happen between 430-7pm on weekedays, it would be nearly impossible for emergency personel to get in and especially out of Cambridge Park drive. I know whoever reading this is unlikely to be the decision maker for all of this, but please pass on my severe frustrations and disappointment to the group that did make these decisions. I sure their commutes aren't nearly doubled because of the decisions they've made.

    Are you serious with this? Quit parking city trucks in protected bike lanes.
  • 48 Harvey St Cambridge, Massachusetts - North Cambridge
    a dumpster is on Harvey St, across the street from us. There was a permit that went until mid- JUne. THE DUMPSTER IS STILL THERE! taking up two parking spaces and making a home for rats (yes, I have seen them). Workers are filling it up from pick up trucks- I assume form other jobs at other addresses. Thank You for your time
  • 142 Hampshire St Cambridge, Massachusetts - Cambridge

    Multiple cars are parked over 2' away from the curb and obstructing the bike lane here. I've posted a picture of the first car I came across, there was at least one or two more further down the street as well.

    This kind of terrible parking might be begrudgingly acceptable during a snow storm, or maybe up to a day after a storm, but almost two weeks after a storm? No, not even close to ok. This car needs to be ticketed and towed for obstructing the right of way.

    3 Leonard Ave Cambridge 02139, United States - Mid-Cambridge

    Parking without permits or Passes.

    Leonard Av is neighbors to numerous health facilities hospitals rehab Harvard vanguard etc. The parking enforcement on the street of late has been absent. In the past ppl patrolled it twice a day from traffic & parking. Numerous houses are being redone on the street with contractors bringing 3-5 cars per house. It’s not fair to residents buying 25 dollar passes who don’t own drive ways.

  • 8 Beech St Cambridge, MA 02140, USA - North Cambridge

    Both sides of Beech Street, between Massachusetts Avenue and Orchard Street, are posted no parking for construction for the entire period December 14 - January 14, Monday-Friday, 7 am-3:30 pm. The contractor is "Riley Bros".

    There was no construction activity yesterday, and so far none today, on any part of this street (aside from building construction that has been ongoing at one address for the past 18 months, and is unrelated). The weather is clear.

    This permit needs to be revoked. It never should have been issued this way. The contractor needs to reapply for separate permits limited to specific dates and a specific side/length of the street where work will actually be occurring. This is significantly displacing parking for residents and the contractor needs to make a good-faith effort to mitigate that impact.

    Please note I have tried to reach the public works construction permitting office at 617-349-4800, option 2, option 2, but it does not seem to be routing to a phone line operated by a city employee.

    Thank you in advance.
