New North End NPA Steering Committee
501 Pine Street Burlington, Vermont - Burlington Electric
Parking has been disallowed on Pine St between Locust St and Howard street for half a year now and the world has kept turning just fine.
Now that Pine St is (mostly) paved edge to edge we see lots of folks cycling in the barreled off area indicating the pent up demand for cycling infrastructure here. Please consider making this stretch permanently a No Parking zone allowing the existing northbound bike lane on lower Pine St to be extended all the way to Howard St.
380 North Ave Burlington, Vermont - Burlington ElectricThe contractor for long line painting has mis-marked the guides on North Ave. They have placed them on the old scrubbed out line, rather than measuring the current outer buffer line from the center line as was done the last painting cycle.

Despite being many days out from storms essentially none of the bikelanes citywide are a safe usable width presently, and frankly have not been since 1/20/2019.
The general purpose lanes and sidewalks in these sections have be well cleared, but once again folks riding bikes have been left to fend for themselves.
Please prioritize getting the bike lanes cleared out so folks can actually use them. Thanks.
145-163 College Street Burlington, Vermont - Burlington ElectricWhy is a waffle vendor truck allowed to sit right on the grass and tree roots of City Hall Park behind the Irish pub and almost touching a tree?! This is a public park where we treasure our green space and don't want to see it damaged by a vehicle!
603 Riverside Avenue Burlington, Vermont - Burlington ElectricThe Riverside multi-use path essentially stops at the traffic light leaving the Community Health Center parking lot. When bicycling and trying to get from the Riverside multi-use path to North Winooski Ave heading downtown, you either have to use the walk signal or enter the road and take a left from Riverside onto North Winooski in the road, which can be quite difficult with intolerant car drivers not letting you over. It'd be helpful for the traffic light leaving CHC to be sensitive enough for bikes to earn the green light to leave the CHC lot and go straight across onto North Winooski Ave. Right now it doesn't trigger for just bikes and I've sat for multiple light cycles waiting for it.
527 S Union St Burlington, VT 05401, USA - Burlington ElectricThere is very poor visibility as a pedestrian crossing S Union Street to southbound traffic, especially as the street curves behind the parked cars. This would be a good candidate for curb extension and/or restricted parking.
351-455 North Avenue Burlington, Vermont - Burlington ElectricThe makeshift driveway at the Burlington College site has broken the sidewalk and bike lane.
172-198 Lakeside Ave Burlington, Vermont - Burlington ElectricWhat a horrible intersection. Unfortunately I go through it nearly every day. As a pedestrian I dance to avoid being run down. As a cyclist and automobile I get the chance to park in the left lane. I also have the benefit, while pushed in the left lane, of seeing lots of dangerous maneuvers fun confused drivers pulling in and out of Feldman's Bagels. The greatest thing is this is all right under the nose of the public works building.
817 North Avenue Burlington, Vermont - Burlington ElectricSnow from the March 15th storm is still blocking big sections of the bike path on North Ave, creating tight spots for people on bikes and people driving. The issue is primarily on the west side of the Avenue starting near the Elks Club and extends south along the Ave where there is no green belt for snow storage.
99 Billings Court Burlington, VT 05408, USA - Burlington ElectricSunken sidewalk has turned into a swamp. Serious drainage issue that has gone unaddressed for years.
South Willard Street Burlington, Vermont - Burlington ElectricThough the new rainbow crosswalk may look great, I believe that it violates the MUTCD rules concerning what colors can be used in road markings. See section 3A.04.
Also, is the paint retroreflective to be visible during the night?
Oh and section 3B.17 of the MUTCD states that when crosswalk lines are used, they shall consist of solid white lines that mark the crosswalk.
I'm not sure why this wasn't checked before we made this into such a public spectacle. The idea is great but the laws are the laws, especially on a state highway, I would think.

DPW did an excellent job patching the south side of North Street between Winooski and Union last year. Unfortunately, the patch has worn off and the street is completely uneven.
There is also massive water collection here when it rains that people drive through and splash the house and whoever is on the sidewalk at the time.
Please consider patching this block again in the short term and adding it to a regrading list for long term. Thanks!
