Downtown Raleigh North Carolina and vicinity.

Notified About

  • 216 S Wilmington St Raleigh, NC 27601, USA - Central
    People loitering in front of the businesses surrounding Moore square transit station has become a huge problem and is of great concern to customers and business owners. Panhandling, begging, profanity, open containers/alcohol consumption, public urination, littering, sleeping, etc has made Wilmington st an unpleasant place to be for everybody. Please help to solve these problems so downtown Raleigh can be enjoyable for everyone.
  • 221-223 Fayetteville Street Raleigh, NC 27601, USA - Central
    The code says 55 decibels. I've measured this guy at 90 decibels. Six songs, over and over for up to five hours. Totally acceptable at half the volume, but this guy monopolizes the sonic environment of the 200 block of Fayetteville Street.
  • 327 W Hargett St Raleigh, NC - Central
    Apparently the picture of the poster I took of the entrance to Our Place was too graphic to put online on SCF, why should the rest of us be subject to seeing it? Can the City do something about Our Place keeping their front door open with the giant @#$% sign visible? Or if they want to keep the front door open, take down the @#$% poster at the front entrance.
  • 608-610 Hillsborough Street Raleigh, NC 27603, USA - Hillsborough
    Obnoxious retail sign blocking sidewalk across the street from it's storefront. They places it right next to a Mo Parking sign constricting the passage of pedestrians even more.
  • S Saunders St Raleigh, NC - Central
    There are a lot of drivers speeding through our residential area on this section of South Saunders. Many of these drivers do not reside in our neighborhood but use the street as a cut-through.
  • 628 W Harget Raleigh, NC - Hillsborough
    West Hargett Street Area from Saint Mary's Street to South West Street is unsafe for pedestrians. The sidewalks are overgrown in areas and very dark. Trees are blocking the streetlights. Green re-cycling bins were thrown on the sidewalk and i couldn't see them until a near crash. North side across from Brewpub is dark with overgrowth bordered by homeless sleeping area. Then the giant mud puddle, railroad tracks and the Citrix building site. I crossed over onto the dark rutted dirt path near the concrete plant, then heard the train coming. There are lots of runners, walkers and bikers in this area. There has been minimal effort by the city to do anything. Are there any plans to clean up this area?
  • 607 West North Street Raleigh, NC - Hillsborough
    I was recently issued a parking citation for parking on W. North Street for parking in a front of a fire hydrant. While I understand it's illegal to park in front of a hydrant, this newly installed hydrant is hardly visible from the curb (see attached). It's most definitely not visible when there is any walking traffic. Cars are consistently parked in this area and many downtown visitors will get citations until the curb is marked in red – which would also help people understand how far away they need to be from the hydrant.
  • 428 South Mcdowell Street Raleigh, North Carolina - Central
    The trash receptale on the corner of West Cabarrus and South McDowell Street opposite the convention center and across from the amphitheater has been removed. I clean up the trash on the half block area to help keep our gallery entrance looking nice. I do know the can seemed never to fill but it was a big help in preventing litter. Since it has been gone the amount of litter on the ground has dramatically increased. The amphitheater is starting its season and based on last year this will increase the amount of cigarette butts in particular and litter in general.
  • 210 S. Wilmington St - Central
    At 210 S. Wilmington St, they leave 12+ trash cans, two deep on the sidewalk all week long. Many of the cans leak liquid filth onto the sidewalk and street. They are so close to the curb, it's hard to open the car door when parking, then you have to take care not to put your shoes in the filth. It also smells like a dumpster on the street. Why is this business allowed to stink & filth up downtown Raleigh?
  • 169-199 East Davie Street Raleigh, North Carolina - Blount Corridor

    Every Sunday, a motorcycle club meets at Zydeco at City Market, which is between Davie, Blount, Wolf and Blake Streets. Please, RPD, speak with the owner of Zydeco regarding their guests. These club members are abusing the residents' and out-side diners quality of life with the noise these bikes make. Unnecessary revving up of their engines, just to prove a point, seems to be their mission.

    Sundays should be on the peaceful side, right? No longer for our household when these motorcycles begin to spin around our neighborhood. It is ridiculous and upsetting. Once, when I was walking my little old dog across the street, I held my finger to my lips hoping the motorcycle at the red light wouldn't rev his engines as I walked across. With a big wide smile, he revved them as much as he could, truly annoying me and totally frightening my little old dog. Mean-spirited with no regard for others.

  • 221 S Wilmington St Raleigh, NC - Central
    I attempted to access the Hannah Mart on Wilmington St. I am in a wheel chair and could not gain access. ADA doesn't apply to them? At least that is what the owner said....
  • Moore Square Transit Station Raleigh, NC - Central
    SeeClickFix helped to get 'No Smoking" signs in place at Moore Sq bus station. Before the signs went up I asked a "Special Police" guy why he wasn't writing citations for people who weren't following the no smoking ordinance the City of Raleigh and Raleigh Transit enacted Jan 2nd. He said he couldn't write citations until there were signs. While I was there for a short 20 minutes this afternoon SIX people were smoking. NO security people were anywhere to be found. Why is this ordinance being ignored??? I'm not the only person who is baffled by this.
