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.
  • 607-709 North Avenue Burlington, Vermont - Burlington Electric
    Both sides of North Ave are in need of a sweep, which will probably require multiple passes to get a whole winter worth of debris out of the street. Especially in sections where potholes have been repeatedly filled with cold patch, the blown out patches and sections that have been ground down have all deposited enough material in the bike lanes that they're washboarded like a dirt road.
  • 365 Riverside Ave Burlington, VT 05401, Burlington, Vermont - Burlington Electric

    Finding people parked in front of Hall's Hitches & Welding is a daily occurrence, this can cause bicycle and foot traffic to veer off the path and sometimes into the street in order to pass.
    Hall's Hitches & Welding needs another visit to remind them of this parking violation....please issue a warning or a ticket as I have proof here and can continue to pass on video and/or photo proof.

  • Poirer Place Burlington, Vermont - Burlington Electric
    News tonight states a pedestrian and dog were killed on North Avenue by Poirer Place. North Avenue needs lit crosswalks like they have on Pine St on busy crossing areas. We have a big population and many folks crossing from east to west.
  • 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?
  • 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...
  • 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.
  • 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?
  • 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.
  • 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.

  • 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?
