Notified About

  • 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.
  • 1802 Chantilly Street Richmond, VA - Monument Avenue Park
    The street light located on the property of the volunteer rescue squad that stands in the front of the building between the squad and the gas station next door, is non-functional. Lighting is important in the city, as we have had problems with vandals, fights, and robberies. Please help us keep the community safe by lighting it back up!
  • 1802 Chantilly Street Richmond, VA - Monument Avenue Park
    Several large potholes have reopened in front of the West End Vol. Rescue Squad, impeding the entry and egress of, and causing damage to, the emergency vehicles.

    1802 Chantilly Street Richmond, VA - Monument Avenue Park
    A large pothole (we call it The Great Hole to China), and several smaller ones have appeared on Chantilly Street in front of our ambulance bay at the West End Vol. Rescue Squad. As we drive emergency equipment over them to get in and out of the building, damage is caused to the units. I can forward an image if it is necessary. Thank you for your time!

    10 N. Boulevard Richmond, VA - The Museum District
    Please grade the the alley the runs from 2 N. Boulevard to 24 N. Boulevard. The potholes are getting quite large.
  • Other Acknowledged
    3026 Kensington Ave Richmond, VA 23221, USA - The Museum District
    After every rainfall, water pools on the sidewalk in front of 3024 and 3026 Kensington Ave, completely blocking the sidewalk and making it not traversable. I am concerned that in the winter this will turn into an ice block and cause a safety risk to people trying to walk on the sidewalk. I am new to the neighborhood, but I heard from my neighbors that in the past few winters several people have slipped on this ice patch, dubbed Kensington Pond.
  • 3100 Block Ellwood Ave. Richmond, Virginia - The Museum District

    Numerous units on the 3100 block of Ellwood Ave. are leaving recycling bins on the sidewalk and other public right of ways.

    Richmond Code §31-23;
    Ordinance # 2007-230-275,
    § 1, 11-26-2007

    Both state the City will enforce the garbage supercans and recycling bins left out passed their allowed times. Furthermore, the latter states that it is the responsibility of the Department of Public Works (Richmond City Agency) to assess the civil penalty of $50 per receptacle left out per day.

  • Potholes Archived
    3143 Grove Avenue Richmond, VA 23221, USA - The Museum District
    Ridiculous, enlarging potholes are in the Floyd-Grove Alley between Auburn and Belmont.
  • 109 N Belmont Ave Richmond Virginia - The Museum District

    Groundhog day. Still no contact, still no resolution. Multiple reports to seeclickfix. Incredible. They just mark the issue as closed and move on.

    "Originally reported 7 months ago. Marked as "closed" by the city. Absolutely nothing has been done about the problem. Do you fix the issues reported just by closing them?"

    "Alley between Grove/Floyd/Belmont/Sheppard perpetually has potholes. They never get fixed correctly. Filled with gravel, reappear soon after rain. Bigger issue at north entrance to alley at Belmont. Huge holes that collect water. No drainage. Leads to both mosquitos, and more importantly, structural damage. Neighbor has water entering basement. I have a leaning brick wall from ground saturation."

    Your concern(s) have been received and forwarded to the Department of Public Works (CRS#20020926205) in reference to the potholes in the alley and to the Department of Public Utilities(CRS#20020981267) for a drainage assessment; these concerns were forwarded to the assigned departments so that proper inspection and handling can take place accordingly. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact us at 804-646-7000 to speak to a customer service representative; please reference the CRS#'s when inquiring. We appreciate your communication that helps us in “Building The Best Richmond” together.
