  • 137 Hampshire St Cambridge, MA, 02139, USA - Wellington-Harrington
    While on Hampshire at Elm Saturday 8/15/20 around 10:40am I saw two police officers directing traffic with many construction workers and pedestrians nearby (definitely within 6 feet) and neither police officer was wearing a mask. They also weren't enforcing the mask requirement to those who walked by without a mask on. This is truly absolutely unacceptable. Can civilians issue violation tickets to police officers for failing to follow the governor's orders requiring masks in public?

    Please install more bike parking near St James Episcopal Church on the sidewalk. This is the most common approach for cyclists - As it stands, on Sunday mornings, parishioners who bike to church end up competing for the single bike post or have to walk 10 minutes and park in Porter Square. Several posts could easily be put to good use during the week and there is a large amount of sidewalk to work with.

    Someone's saving parking spots with orange cones
  • 86 Kinnaird St Cambridge, MA, 02139, USA - Riverside
    This large bus has been parked on Kinnaird near Bay St. since the last street cleaning, taking up multiple spots. Is there a rule against oversized vehicles parking in a resident permit zone?

    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.

    Nice performance from this driver who decided to unload blocking the bike lane and crosswalk, despite the abundant parking space around.

    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!

  • New St Cambridge, MA, 02138, USA - Neighborhood 9

    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!

  • 1585 Massachusetts Ave Cambridge, Massachusetts - Agassiz-Harvard
    Can someone in City Planning please work with Harvard Law to have them establish an Uber Pick up in the circular driveway on their property across from Waterhouse Street? With the protected bike lanes, when events let out, as one did yesterday around 4:45 pm, ubers stop in the driving lane closest to the protected bike lane, pedestrians start cutting across bike lanes with their luggage seemingly without knowing whose uber it is and frequently with outlook looking first: bikes, cars and pedestrians are all in peril as all traffic comes to a sudden halt.
  • 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.

    Unshielded parking lot lights at Cambridge Honda. Owner removed the old shielded lights. New lights are much brighter. Without shielding the lights are creating light trespass into the adjacent residential area and Fresh Pond reservation.
