My company who I pay for to shovel for me just left. He also shoveled a pathway out onto the sidewalk on Vernon Street from the front of my house, which is 14 Vernon Street. Which was currently, just finished. Kappy’s Liquors plow guy, who was plowing their back parking lot off of Vernon Street, just plowed Kappy’s snow.. and shoveled directly from their back driveway area straight across to the opposite side of the street right onto the freshly shoveled pathway in between the 2 parked cars. They can push it into the back of their own parking lot.
traffic backs up from light on corner of washington and florence making it impossible at times to get off of maude street and turning on to maude street from washington. would make it easier if the green light was held longer and when the light is green coming from the square make it green at the same time on the washington street side. as most cars turn either right or left
Metal rod in parking lot damaging cars. I complained about this months ago but nothing has been done it ripped my front bumper and last time they said it’s fixed just to find out weeks later it’s still there
Despite the parks being officially closed, there is substantially increased use of Waitts Mount Park in the last week. In addition to added foot traffic, there are MANY cars parking on Leonard St, throughout the day and evening, some of which are large vehicles parking on the sidewalks. Every evening and well into the night, groups, tightly packed, are going into the park. I understand the desire for people to be comforted by spending time in natural surroundings but this is adding risk to the neighborhood and stressing residents with noise and potential health hazards from personal contacts and trash. Remedy: Post signs for RESIDENT ONLY parking. ENFORCE parking regulations. HAVE POLICE check the park in the evenings.
As far as I can tell, the "walk" signals have been shut off since City Hall construction started. There are just as many pedestrians trying to walk to the T as before that project started -- in fact I think there is zero correlation between number of walkers and City Hall coming down -- so I'd love to see the walk signal reactivated here, as it's becoming quite dangerous in the morning.
