Notified About

  • 15 Hull St Quincy, MA - Quincy
    The yard of 15 Hull Street is in terrible condition, and has been for a long time. I understand this is a Section 8 property. Who from the city is allowing this house to ruin the entire neighborhood? Is no one checking in with unannounced visits? Often trash sits along the right side of the house, with no lids, and is not brought out on trash day, bringing animals of all kinds to the neighborhood. The front and back yards are filled with junk (is it normal to leave a tandem stroller outside during the winter and NEVER use it?). What is sad is that I understand from others that the interior is even more deplorable, and there are young children living there. I am concerned for their well being. PLEASE help, and help this week. For the sake of the children.
  • Weston Ave Quincy, MA - Quincy
    The City of Quincy repaired/improved this sidewalk in 2010 and it does not comply with the ADA laws requiring an accessible curb cut when sidewalk is "improved".
    Please obey the law and install the curb cut. It isn't right to ignore those who face enough challenges in their lives. Thank you.
  • Monroe And Presidents - Quincy
    T riders park on Monroe and Presidents lane all day in front of homes. Parking is 2 hours only
  • 646 & 692 Quincy Shore Drive Quincy, MA - Quincy

    There are two yacht clubs along Quincy Shore Drive. Both clubs can be accessed from the water by a common channel; however the channel has filled with sand from the ongoing DCR beach maintenance project. At low tide people cannot go back and forth to their boats because the water in the channel is too low. Rumor has it that money had been set aside by the State of Massachusetts to dredge the channel, however within the City of Quincy there seems to be a problem prioritizing the job.
    The yacht clubs have members who are working class citizens and retirees. Dues are not high but members are expected to put in work hours to maintain the building and programs. The City of Quincy collects taxes on the boats moored in the harbor by the clubs, however it seems the City of Quincy does not want to take responsibility for maintaining the water way. If the City of Quincy were to facilitate dredging that water way, .construction workers would be employed.

    From a safety point of view having the channel open would allow emergency marine equipment and manpower quick access to the city intra structure.

  • Street light out Acknowledged
    Clement Terrace Quincy, MA - Quincy
    The street light is actually on Squantum Street (at the intersection of Clement Terrace by the golf course). It is VERY dark along this portion of the street and it has been out for a very long time.
  • 3 School St Quincy, MA 02169, USA - Quincy

    The owners and delivery guy for School house pizza park illegally in front of their store. It makes it very hard for trucks and buses to turn right onto School St... And if you are a cyclist like I am it is very dangerous when you come around the corner with a car/truck or bus next to you.

    This clown has now started parking in the handicaped space. Must have a cop in their pocket

  • Sea Street Quincy, MA - Quincy
    How much longer must we endure this horrible paving patch job? The street was torn up before Thanksgiving and has yet to be repaved. Every heavy rain storm loosens up the pavement. Just imagine what the snow and plows will bring? It's illogical to wait until spring. I expect we'll be re-routed again, as we were during the long weeks of construction before? This has been a nightmare for all of Hough's Neck!
  • 105 Thomas Burgin Parkway Quincy, Massachusetts - Quincy
    MBTA buses always stopping on Burgin Pky to drop passengers at Q Center train station. Busses block the road / cars in technically a no standing roadway. busses should be required to pull into the 'Bus Area Only" ~ 30' further down, perhaps the redesign of the station/parking garage could incorporate buses to stop in bus area, rather than in the road just because its close to the stairs to the trains? thanks.
  • 156-164 Independence Ave Quincy, MA 02169, USA - Quincy

    When the Quincy Adams station was built, there was an entrance on Independence Avenue.

    That entrance is now closed, so people who need to go to the area east of the station have an unnecessary 25-minute walk, or an equally long bus trip, to get to the station a few feet from where they started.

    Most neighborhoods, even in Boston, aren't lucky enough to be next to a T station. It's a big waste to provide T service to this area and then prevent people from using it because of a single locked gate.

  • Penn Street Quincy, MA - Quincy
    There is a Traffic Signal for pedestrians, however it is only on one side of the dangerous HIGHWAY SPEED intersection (the side opposite Lowe's), and it is shrouded in leaves due to a huge tree enveloping it. We saw a lady just throw herself onto the parkway to cross the street, and she ran as fast as her work pumps allowed. We waited forever, never saw a "walk" signal, and also just said a few Hail Mary's and ran across the street. Obviously this is a problem. We just moved down the street and don't want to be roadkill. I'm sure drivers don't want to have to avoid our carcasses on the road for the following weeks as well. Traffic jam. PLEASE have the city make the walk sign more visible to us lowly pedestrians! Paying to park for a literally 2 minute drive to arrive safely would be absurd.
  • 52-58 Prospect Street Quincy, Massachusetts - Quincy

    Is it normal in Quincy for hilly residential streets to be plowed with several inches of snow left on the ground?

    The attached photo looks downhill on a two-way street. The tread mark on the left side shows a rear-wheel-drive taxi failed to go uphill after moving aside to let an oncoming car pass. The taxi had to roll back downhill at the end.

    I called DPW but the man who answered the phone wasn't convinced that there was any problem with the plowing. He insisted that someone must have shoveled snow into the road. To me, it looked like the plow wasn't lowered enough when the plow truck came.

    Is this level of "plowedness" normal?
