  • 32 Rose St Burlington VT 05401, USA - Burlington Electric
    A resident of 32 rose street has been setting up a sidewalk sale every single day - weekday and weekend - right on the sidewalk from about 11am to 5pm every day. I can understand a single yard sale or sidewalk sale every now and then, but it appears to be his daytime business. If something is this frequent I would think it would need to be permitted. It is the source and site of many loud conversations, and may feel intimidating to neighbors and pedestrians. personally i find it unsettling and at times disruptive (he has had some loud swearing discussions). can someone please check in on what is going on and decide if it is permissible?
  • Snow Plowing Archived
    Riverside Ave Burlington, Vermont - Burlington Electric
    The bike lane on Riverside Ave. has never been fully plowed since the first snowfall of the season.
  • 275-289 College Street Burlington, VT 05401, USA - Burlington Electric
    There used to be painted lanes and they have completely vanished.
  • 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.
  • 351-455 North Avenue Burlington, Vermont - Burlington Electric
    Across from 432.
  • 214 Killarney Dr Burlington, VT, 05408, USA - Burlington Electric
    I find it ridiculous that the right of way is given to two buildings on the water that is a private drive. Thousands of people use the Greenway and cross this daily. The road should have a stop sign and the Greenway should have right of way. Just a few hundred feet up the path at Driftwood the road has stop signs and the path has right of way. Please correct as I watch 80 path users cross this without a single car using it.
  • 517-605 North Avenue Burlington, Vermont - Burlington Electric
    Due to all the potholes in the southbound lane between the 127 & the high school, combined with cars not following the actual radius of the turn, the bike lanes have completely worn away from car traffic over the winter. Please repaint ASAP, there is a lot of extra tourist bike traffic currently because of the detour, increasing the chances that somebody is going to get hurt.
  • 152-194 S Union St Burlington, VT 05401, USA - Burlington Electric
    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.

  • Snow Plowing Archived
    298 S Winooski Ave Burlington, VT, 05401, USA - Burlington Electric
    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).
  • 145 Cherry St Burlington 05401, United States - Burlington Electric
    Please move this rack to a better location where access isn’t blocked by a tree & cafe seating. It is difficult to access & underutilized. It would also be very helpful if it was reversed so bikes could be loaded from the street side. Bikes are not allowed on sidewalks downtown & the current configuration requires a user to get their bike up onto the sidewalk, back down into the rack, and then reverse this process which is a challenge for many folks.
  • 1204-1208 North Ave Burlington, VT 05408, USA - Burlington Electric
    150+ new units built across the street from a north ave bus stop. Kids, elderly, lots of folks playing frogger everyday crossing here. I've seen many close calls.
