  • Graffiti Acknowledged
    187 Pearl St Burlington, VT, 05401, USA - Burlington Electric
    This corner is starting to look like a ghetto. Graffiti on multiple posts of Asiana House's awning structure. Also large tags on brick building to west of Asiana house.

    I do not know what the city can do other than build the Champlain Parkway finally after 4 decades, but until then if something is not done to deal with the constant speeding traffic and massive tractor trailer trucks that cascade down Home Ave at all hours of the day, someone is going to get seriously hurt or worse. Kids are scared to walk out of their front doors or walk to school because it is like playing a game of frogger every morning and afternoon at rush hour.

    Why is the city and state so dysfunctional? Why can't they bring any large infrastructure project successfully to fruition?

  • 311-327 Pine Street Burlington, Vermont - Burlington Electric

    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.

    75 Intervale Ave Burlington, Vermont - Burlington Electric
    Landlord of property is dumping gravel on greenbelt creating an illegal transition from street to a non permitted parking lot.

    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.
  • Maple And Battery St Burlington, Vermont - Burlington Electric
    There are no pedestrian signals at Battery and Maple. This is a high volume intersection that needs dedicated pedestrian signals to allow people to safely cross including those that need extra time. This connects to the Burlington Bike Path on one side and should allow for better pedestrian experience. I had three cars cut me off trying to walk across this intersection. Two of them doing right on red.
  • 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!
  • 194 North Street Burlington, Vermont - Burlington Electric
    We want to make you aware of a situation that has been brought to our attention from several residents at the buildings 188 and 194 North St. A large truck is consistently parked in the handicap space to the left of the driveway that is causing a shield effect for drivers exiting and entering this driveway. We recently have been notified of several accidents (cars) and near misses (pedestrians) caused by this large vehicle being parked there. We want to offer a suggestion to move this handicap space to the corner of North St. and Elmwood Avenue or on Elmwood Avenue in front of T. Ruggs. We would like to avoid future accidents since the common denominator has been this truck that people can not see over. Please for the safety of everyone consider this move!

    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!

  • Starr Farm Road Burlington, Vermont - Burlington Electric
    It has become apparent by recent NNE conversations that there is confusion regarding the stop signs on the bike path. Some people feel that the stop signs only apply to bicycles and pedestrians have the right of way. Pedestrians walk into traffic and bikes often ignore the stop signs. Maybe an additional sign explaining that the stop signs are for everyone on the bike path? Would appreciate some clarification on the matter. Thank you.

    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.
