Notified About

  • 173-175 Main St Burlington, Vermont - Burlington Electric
    This is the 2nd time I've reported this. Homeless people camped by the dog park. I walk past and the are drinking, swearing, have open fires, piles of trash and dogs that I'm sure are unregistered. Why is nothing done about this? It's disgusting, unnerving and illegal. I will not let my girlfriend walk in that area alone. Very bad message we are sending to our residents and visitors alike. So in a day or two, this post will be marked as acknowledged and absolutely nothing will be done and in the fall my tax dollars will be used to pay the DPW to clean up the mess they leave behind. Stellar job BPD and Parks Dept, stellar!
  • Paved Greenbelt. Acknowledged
    118 North Union St Burlington, Vermont - Burlington Electric
    The contractor recently paved over part of the greenbelt and widened the driveway far beyond its previous width.

    North Winooski Ave Burlington, Vermont - Burlington Electric
    Can DPW paint Parking lines on North Winooski Ave?
  • 311-327 Pine Street Burlington, Vermont - Burlington Electric

    Bike lanes city wide are lousy with a winter's worth of gravel, silt, litter and other debris which pose loss of control hazards and crash hazards.

    Streets with significant pothole issues, e.g. Pine St and North Ave, are significantly worse as all the pothole debris gets pushed into the bike lanes. In some areas this has formed gravel mounds that are inches high.

  • Graffiti Acknowledged
    187 Pearl St Burlington, VT, 05401, USA - Burlington Electric
    This corner is starting to look like a ghetto. Graffiti on multiple posts of Asiana House's awning structure. Also large tags on brick building to west of Asiana house.
  • Snow Plowing Archived
    32 S Union St Burlington, VT, 05401, USA - Burlington Electric
    As of last night, the North Union street bike lane was impassable. I could tell that it had been plowed, but residential plows ruined the work by dragging deep rutted snow into the lane and leaving it there. Please replow the lane, and take code enforcement measures to end the sloppy residential plow work. Thanks!
  • 194 North Street Burlington, Vermont - Burlington Electric
    We want to make you aware of a situation that has been brought to our attention from several residents at the buildings 188 and 194 North St. A large truck is consistently parked in the handicap space to the left of the driveway that is causing a shield effect for drivers exiting and entering this driveway. We recently have been notified of several accidents (cars) and near misses (pedestrians) caused by this large vehicle being parked there. We want to offer a suggestion to move this handicap space to the corner of North St. and Elmwood Avenue or on Elmwood Avenue in front of T. Ruggs. We would like to avoid future accidents since the common denominator has been this truck that people can not see over. Please for the safety of everyone consider this move!
  • 80 Cherry Ln Burlington, Vermont - Burlington Electric
    Please repair the paved path between Callahan Park and the Birchcliff Parkway neighborhood. The pavement is in terrible condition. Pedestrians (many of them children!) are tripping and falling. We need a pedestrian- and bike-friendly path between the Five Sisters neighborhood and Champlain Elementary School. Thank you.
  • North Union Street Burlington, Vermont - Burlington Electric
    the obstacles scattered all along north union street to delineate the bike lane pose Major hazards for motorcyclist. why are bicycle riders safety ahead of others in danger? Motorcyclists are people too.....if evasive action needs to be taken, a Motorcyclist will be hurt terribly, a bicycle rider can just bail off without a 500lb object landing om them...

    Still here.
  • Snow Plowing Archived
    298 S Winooski Ave Burlington, VT, 05401, USA - Burlington Electric
    Northbound bike lane is reduced to foot-wide section. Bikes are forced to drive on double yellow against traffic.
    Note: Sending a sidewalk plow down the bike lane at this stage is way too late and will achieve very little, because of the amount of snow and ice. This needs a big plow and should have been addressed during the parking ban(s).
