Notified About

  • 471 Allens Ave Providence, RI 02905, USA - Lower South Providence

    The rail tracks on Allens Avenue are a danger to cyclists traveling in the bike lanes, especially when wet. Most of the tracks are positioned at a steep angle to the lanes, such that a thin bicycle tire will suddenly catch and slide along the track, causing the rider to fall. I understand that the rails were retained for historic character; however, the danger to cyclists is greater. Please remove the rails that are positioned poorly in the bike lanes.

    Thanks,
    John Mangili

  • 95 Grove Street Providence, RI - Federal Hill
    Over 80 concerned neighbors attended a rally on Sept. 11, 2010 to support saving this historic building. Neighbors would like to continue to work with the city towards an amiable resolution and ask that the Providence Redevelopment Agency get involved as soon as possible.
  • Allens Avenue At Point St. Providence, RI 02905, USA - Lower South Providence
    Bike lane ends abruptly where Allens Avenue intersects Point Street. All of a sudden, cyclists are forced into the traffic lane. Cars are not expecting this. Compounding the problem are drains and potholes that further limit space for cyclists at the side of the road. To fix this, consider 1) eliminating one traffic lane (there are 3) to allow space for cyclists, or 2) replace sidewalk with bi-directional, bike-path style shared space for walkers and cyclists, or 3) at least paint a visible lane and put up a bike sign so cars will be expecting the lane to end. This is very dangerous as it is.
  • Railroad St Providence, RI 02903, USA - Downtown
    The sidewalk needs to be repaired
  • Lippitt Park Providence, RI 02903, USA - Blackstone
    The trash cans in Lippitt Park are overflowing with garbage and there is trash on the ground. The park is used frequently in summer months - maybe there needs to be an increase in trash pick-up? The Farmer's Market begins next week also and trash will be increasing. Several neighbors have reported rat sitings in the neighborhood, overflowing garbage cans in the park are going to continue to attract rats and other rodents. Thanks!

  • 37 Jewett Street Providence, RI - Smith Hill
    Street lamp light is out.
  • 79 Elmwood Ave Providence, RI - West End

    Oil spills in apron surrounding Auto Zone, just before the Watershed Sign on Elmwood Avenue, Providence. DEM was notified about this and so have the News outlets.

    I am a resident of Elmwood, and I think this type of pollution should be on the news.

  • 33 Atlantic Ave Providence, RI - Elmwood
    There is a 12 ' high mound of trash in front of this house at all times. It seems as soon as the city takes anything away, another mound appears. Cars are being stripped in the back lot - new ones there all the time and within hours they are unrecogizable
  • 28 Virginia Ln Providence, RI 02908, USA - Wanskuck
    Providence City Council has earmarked 4 million dollars for neighborhood improvements, yet, nothing is destined for this once beautiful park. Instead, money will be spent on the already well-maintained Fargnoli Park on Smith St. Only difference is the demographics of the two neighborhoods. Fix this park!!
  • 122 Willow Street Providence, RI - West End
    For the past month and a half huge trash heaps have littered the 122 Willow Street property. Despite repeated requests from neighbors, the tenants refuse to address the issue. This house is a nuisance property and should be reported to the AG's task force.
  • 27-29 Bridgham St Providence, RI 02907, USA - West End
    Kids opened the fire hydrant. Street flooded and water continuing to pour out.
  • Viola Street Providence, RI - Silverlake
    This house seems like it's been foreclosed on. But it's a mess and needs to be cleaned up.
