Downtown Raleigh North Carolina and vicinity.
230 East Davie Street Raleigh, North Carolina - CentralGrass between the sidewalk and curb here along Davie Street between Blount and Person streets is very sparse and has been for many years. On the south side of the street, tree roots, dirt, dog waste, and even plastic mesh from previous sod installation are visible. Can we get the sidewalk pavers extended to the curb? Also the sidewalk pavers are raised in many areas on this walk and could be completely re-done in the process. This block is in desperate need of sprucing up in the heart of Raleigh.
301 Fatetteville Street Raleigh, North Carolina - Central
Saturday morning after 9:30 AM on Oct. 18th walking on Fayetteville Street it was sad to encounter over ten spots--between Davie Street and Morgan Street that featured one or more of the following: vomit, broken beer bottles, and empty unbroken beer bottles.
The Street Cleaners in the red shirts were doing a fine job getting it all tidied up for another day in Raleigh--these folks are to be commended for cleaning up the disgusting leavings generated by nightlife that needs to be more carefully regulated by the Raleigh City Council, the Downtown Raleigh Alliance, and the Raleigh Police.
The problem is not the people cleaning the streets. The problem are city leaders who put up with allowing Fayetteville Street to become such a cesspool of side effects.
The mess being cleaned up are the side effects of too many clubs in too small an area over-serving people to the point where vomit and broken bottles are rather common in the morning...as is the crazy amount of noise late at night which many of us do not even bother reporting any longer due to ineffective responses.
Cleaning up the mess is appreciated
--we salute you red shirted street cleaners.
We don't appreciate public officials who let the root causes which produce this mess continue.
Raleigh--let's grow up and get our laws enforced. Let's not wake up in a few years with an unattractive downtown just because city leaders allowed way to many bars and clubs and then refused to enforce the law.
300 Fayetteville Street Raleigh, North Carolina - CentralThe bar/pub trolly going down Fayetteville street on Sat night was playing music so load it could be heard from half a block away. This is in clear violation of Sec 12-5007 of Raleigh's Noise ordinance. This city needs to learn how to enforce it's street dining and noise ordinances.
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.
210 Fayetteville Street Raleigh, NC 27601, USA - CentralThe massive street fight that broke out between a dozen people on Fayetteville Street last night has been building all summer; it's the result of almost zero police presence on Raleigh's signature downtown thoroughfare. Please, please put officers on the street after dark. This is not a job for the Ambassadors; bad actors are filling the void that COR and RPD have created on Fayetteville street, and businesses, patrons and residents are paying the price.
210 S. Wilmington St - CentralAt 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?
500 Glenwood Ave Raleigh, NC 27603, USA - HillsboroughHot dog vendor leaves cart on weekends on the sidewalk, obstructing the sidewalk adjacent to an R-Line stop.
428 South Mcdowell Street Raleigh, North Carolina - CentralThe 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.
221 S Wilmington St Raleigh, NC - CentralI 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 - CentralSeeClickFix 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.
222 Hargett St Raleigh, NC - Central
I am noticing a lot of issues being closed that are not actually being fixed. Many especially in downtown. What is the protocol here? If See Click Fix is to be a tool to fix problems, they should not be fixed until verified as closed by the City. Closing an issue by saying it is going to be done has been unacceptable because I am seeing closed issues in my area of downtown not being addressed.
When SCF was initiated I saw it as an invaluable tool. Now I see it is something the City despises. Items are being closed out upon recognition, and if individuals follow-up, they are not actually being fixed.
If SCF is going to be a tool for citizens to easily fix problems and the City to engage citizens to make Raleigh the best place to live, let's make sure that things that are reported are actually fixed if necessary.
