  • 2024 W Main St Richmond, VA 23220, USA - The Fan
    The entire alley has tons of deep potholes and has eroded to the point where I can no longer get my car in to my driveway. Having a paved driveway was a selling feature of my house and now I can't even use it. You can see from the picture that the alley may have been paved at one point. My neighbor at 2028 West Main also has a paved driveway and told me that cars can't access his driveway either. Any help would be greatly appreciated
  • Idlewood Avenue And South Boulevard Richmond, Virginia - Carytown
    The intersection of Idlewood Ave & S. Blvd desperately needs a left turn signal. Whether you are heading East or West on Idlewood, the traffic flow comes from 195 in both directions. 10-15 cars will breeze through a green light while those who are yielding and waiting to turn left can miss multiple light cycles. This is dangerous because frustrated drivers often turn left on red and there is a risk that the other cars heading east/west may run the red light as well. The congestion in this area could be alleviated with a left turn signal at the intersection.
  • Other Acknowledged
    2700 Perry St Richmond, VA 23225, USA - Swansboro
    Fonticello Spring at Carter Jones Park- the spring was shut off two years ago so that a plumber could clear a clog in the drain but the work was never completed and the spring is still shut off. The first seeclickfix issue ID is #1055183 and then a new issue ID was created #993712. Both of those cases are marked completed and have been archived but the work has not been done and the spring is still off. I would like for this work to finally be completed so that our community can once again enjoy the advantages of this natural water source.
  • 3208-3212 Ellwood Ave Richmond, VA - The Museum District
    A man at this location has a yard sale every Saturday. He spills his items onto the public sidewalk and sits in the road with a sign trying to get people to stop. This has become a business/street vendor, not a yard sale.
  • 208 South Addison Street Richmond, Virginia - The Fan
    Someone has spray painted "ARE YOU AFRAID OF THE DARKS?" and "YOU ARE NOT SAFE" on the pedestrian walkway
  • 3300 Semmes Ave Richmond, Virginia - Woodland Heights
    Grass Medians down the length of Semmes Ave are overgrown to a height of 2 feet. Needs to be cut ASAP.
  • 117 S Cherry St Richmond, VA 23220, USA - Vcu
    Dangerous, stands out in contrast to sidewalk across the street at VCU
  • 2907 Ellwood Ave Richmond, VA - Carytown
    There has been an unsightly, uncovered hottub on the roof of the garage at 2907 Ellwood Ave for multiple years. It holds water and becomes a terrible breeding area for mosquitos during the warmer months.
  • 1254/1256 Parkwood Ave Richmond, VA - The Fan
    Rug and garbage were dumped about two weeks ago. Couch joined the party a few days later. Should be removed as it is spilling into the driveway and is pretty unsanitary.
  • 3008 Idlewood Ave. Richmond, Virginia - Carytown

    This hole is turning into a lake filled with MOSQUITO'S. It is next to a PLAYGROUND (Grayland Tot Lot). It SMELLS horrible and is HAZARDOUS to drivers. We have reported and called, NOTHING has been done. This happens every year. Each department says someone else owns it. It is a VDOT Residue Land owned by the Commonwealth of VA. All they have to do is bring a big truck of dirt to fill it in...pretty simple.

  • 25 West 30th Street Richmond, Virginia - Swansboro
    THIS IS A CODE ENFORCEMENT ISSUE NOT A BULK TRASH PICK UP! These folks have been chucking their garbage over their fence for more than a year. No one in the city seems to be able to do anything about it. Could this please be sent to the correct dept. so that this will stop?
  • 2200 W Cary St Richmond, VA - The Fan
    five residences using one supercan, trash all over sidewalk routinely now collecting in a corner by residence. Gross.
