  • 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.

    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!

    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.

  • 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 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...

    There has been a large camp here for several months and it has continued to expand.
  • 70 Cherry Street Burlington, Vermont - Burlington Electric
    After being told the problem was being rectified by Chapin Spencer, today there are 2 CCTA cars parked at meters UNPAID and 2 buses at the intersection of Cherry and Pine. 1 bus is at a meter unpaid and 1 parked in a no parking zone.
  • 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!
  • 152-194 S Union St Burlington, VT 05401, USA - Burlington Electric
    The right lane should be right OR straight. Most traffic goes left or straight, so it takes many light cycles to move cars through the intersection. Allowing cars to go straight in the right lane would move way more cars.
  • Sidewalks Acknowledged
    802 Colchester Avenue Burlington, Vermont - Burlington Electric
    A big gap has formed which could easily cause a biker or pedestrian to tumble into fast-moving traffic. The metal joint plate covering the gap creates a dangerous surface.

    Please move this rack to a better location where access isn’t blocked by a tree & cafe seating. It is difficult to access & underutilized. It would also be very helpful if it was reversed so bikes could be loaded from the street side. Bikes are not allowed on sidewalks downtown & the current configuration requires a user to get their bike up onto the sidewalk, back down into the rack, and then reverse this process which is a challenge for many folks.
