New North End NPA Steering Committee

Notified About

  • 116–126 Pearl St Burlington 05401, United States - Burlington Electric
    Street sweeping needed in the bike lanes and on shoulders on the entirety of Pearl Street (both directions). Glass and metal debris capable of puncturing bicycle tires.
  • 105 La Fountain Street Burlington, Vermont - Burlington Electric

    No curb cut, no problem!

    Just move a section of fence and park!

  • Bike Path/North Of Blodgett Property Burlington, VT - Burlington Electric
    At least 5 long-term campsites are established on the no-camping beach just north of the Blodgett factory fence. There is garbage and smell from waste. This is not a legal campsite.
  • Drainage issue Acknowledged
    29 Leddy Park Road Burlington, Vermont - Burlington Electric
    On the east side of North Ave, there is no drainage from Leddy to the shopping center intersection. The whole bike lane is underwater (or under ice when the temps drop). This section was repaved last summer, but the grading/drainage was not addressed at the same time so the pooling is just as bad as it was before.
  • 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!
  • Paved Greenbelt. Acknowledged
    118 North Union St Burlington, Vermont - Burlington Electric
    The contractor recently paved over part of the greenbelt and widened the driveway far beyond its previous width.
  • Parking lines Archived
    North Winooski Ave Burlington, Vermont - Burlington Electric
    Can DPW paint Parking lines on North Winooski Ave?
  • 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!
  • 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?

  • More Camping Archived
    61-77 Sears Ln Burlington, VT 05401, USA - Burlington Electric
    There has been a large camp here for several months and it has continued to expand.
  • 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.

  • Other Archived
    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.
