    Landlord of property is dumping gravel on greenbelt creating an illegal transition from street to a non permitted parking lot.
  • 173-175 Main St Burlington, Vermont - Burlington Electric
    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!
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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!
  • Parking lines Archived
    North Winooski Ave Burlington, Vermont - Burlington Electric
    Can DPW paint Parking lines on North Winooski Ave?
  • North Union Street Burlington, Vermont - Burlington Electric
    the obstacles scattered all along north union street to delineate the bike lane pose Major hazards for motorcyclist. why are bicycle riders safety ahead of others in danger? Motorcyclists are people too.....if evasive action needs to be taken, a Motorcyclist will be hurt terribly, a bicycle rider can just bail off without a 500lb object landing om them...
  • 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.
  • 1-13 Pitkin St Burlington, VT 05401, USA - Burlington Electric
    These signs are up year round on all of the Bissonette properties. Does he have a permit for this? They are ugly and give a transient feel to the neighborhoods they're in.
  • Appletree Point Road From Alexis Drive To Murfield Burlington, VT - Burlington Electric
    many potholes along route, also 1st speed bump on Staniford Rd (from North Ave.) appears gouged out,
  • 168-180 Pearl Street Burlington, Vermont - Burlington Electric
    High demand for bike parking on Pearl St but not a rack in sight so folks are hitching up to whatever they can find. Photos taken Saturday 2015-06-06 around 12:30 all from the same location. Given the high pedestrian volumes through here an on street bike corral is likely an ideal solution.
