Ludlam St Lowell, MA - Lowell
My issue is really a question. I've read over Lowell City Code 243-3 but I really would like to hear how the code is actually enforced.
I know that when I've reported city property for snow removal, someone usually clears that up right away (thanks for that!). When I've reported private property owners, I know that the message is relayed to DPD Inspectional Services. But what happens after that? Some property owners clearly respond when someone gives them a warning (thank you for that too!)...
...but what about the properties who ignore that warning? There have been several properties that have consistently failed to do any shoveling (or the most pathetic excuse for shoveling) even after they've been reported. Does the DPD follow up with these properties to ensure they've complied? Do they issue some sort of violation and collect a fee from the neglectful property owner?
I know we're all exhausted after this intense winter but I want to be able to walk down the street and not die because of snow and ice. I also don't want to spend my time reporting my neighbors over and over because there aren't any consequences to their neglect.
Thank you for your attention to this matter and for the work you've all done over this winter!

Found an attic apartment for rent. However, there doesn't appear to be a fire escape. Is this legal? Owner says it's a 3 family, but city states it's a two family building.
Corner Palmer And Middle Lowell, Massachusetts - LowellThis was reported earlier (a month or more ago) Fuse continues to block the ramps! Someone in City Hall must have authority to enforce the Americans With Disability Act. This is a clear violation. The space between the end of the ramps and the barrier used to delineate outdoor dining area is less than 2 feet. I'll post a picture this evening.
110-294 Arcand Drive In Front Of The Masonic Temple and also in front of Lowell High, Lowell, Massachusetts - Lowell
I did not know what category to post this under.
There are two American flags on light-posts, seemingingly hanging only from a piece of material, and each carrying the weight of a metal rod, which in the wind slams repeatedly and loudly against the light-posts. They have been loose like this for at least a few weeks, likely caused by the wind.
If one came loose in high winds like we have today and fell, anybody they landed on would be seriously hurt.
In the photo, the one on the left is in front of the Masonic Temple, and the one on the right is closer to Fr. Morrisette Ave in next to the Lowell High. For the one on the left, that is the wind that is carrying the weight of that heavy metal pole. Please someone fix these before they do damage.
I'm really surprised, given their proximity to both the police station and City Hall, that nothing has been done to fix this.

70 Methuen St Lowell, Massachusetts - LowellCars routinely park on the sidewalk on Metheun St between 7th and Merrill. I cannot get by on the sidewalk with my stroller; sometimes I cannot even fit single file, with no stroller.
477 and 479 Stevens st., Lowell, MA - LowellA house,(477, and 479), on Stevens St.yesterday knocked down a wall, which was the demarcation line of the property, and the public sidewalk, to create a driveway, for a few cars.
It not only is another eyesore, for the neighborhood to put up with, it is also a danger to pedestrians, especially schoolchildren, from St. Margaret's, and the Daley school.
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.
679 Chelmsford St. Lowell, MA - LowellThe white house at 679 Chelmsford St often has a lot of trash and recycling stacked or scattered in their front yard. The front lawn is used as a driveway (see picture) and the sidewalk in front of the house is often blocked with at least 2 cars pulled up on it. One of them is often a white honda civic.
103-399 Arcand Dr Lowell, MA - LowellLot of confusion over what lanes are for taking a left turn, just the left lane or both the left and center lanes. Need better signage and road markings. Accidents almost happen with each change of the light.
143 East Merrimack Street Lowell, Massachusetts - LowellThe contractor building on the corner of E Merrimack & Fayette St. has blocked 6 to 12" of the sidewalk with the fencing.
The fence is affixed to the sidewalk not inside the plot where the construction is in progress. There's sufficient room to secure the fence off the sidewalk.
