New North End NPA Steering Committee

Notified About

  • 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.

    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.
  • 174 Home Ave Burlington, VT, 05401, USA - Burlington Electric

    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?

  • 49 S Winooski Ave Burlington, VT 05401, USA - Burlington Electric
    The surface of this is dangerous. There is a raised ridge and then an uneven dip below the road level. This is another example of what is inadequate road repair throughout the city. It seems inefficient and expensive to repair road patches 2-3 times. What is the DPW's policy on this? It's worth noting that these are often Water Department repairs...is there a different set of expectations for different departments of repair?

    Can DPW paint Parking lines on North Winooski Ave?
  • 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.

  • 80 Cherry Ln Burlington, Vermont - Burlington Electric
    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.
  • 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!
  • 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.
  • 208 Flynn Burlington, Vermont - Burlington Electric
    I am adding my complaint that this event was allowed to happen in this neighborhood. There were over 300 people with loud cars, burnouts, smoke, loud noise and driving up and down Flynn at speeds of more than 50 mph. They were serving food and liquor with no security. thank you to BPD for shutting it down.
  • 56-88 U.S. Route 2 Burlington, Vermont - Burlington Electric
    Lots of debris in the bike lane at the intersection with Brookes ave, plus a bunch of broken glass on the block between Brookes & Loomis. The whole length of this bike lane could use some street sweeping.

    Northbound bike lane is reduced to foot-wide section. Bikes are forced to drive on double yellow against traffic.
    Note: Sending a sidewalk plow down the bike lane at this stage is way too late and will achieve very little, because of the amount of snow and ice. This needs a big plow and should have been addressed during the parking ban(s).
