Notified About

  • 389 Riverside Avenue Burlington, Vermont - Burlington Electric
    There is almost always a truck parked on the sidewalk/bike path in front of Hal's Hitches and Welding. It's dangerous and inconvenient, as it requires cyclists to enter the street where there is no marked bike lane.
  • Plattsburgh Avenue Burlington, Vermont - Burlington Electric
    Several complaints were filed on street conditions being horrible near the North Avenue Plattsburgh Avenue area specifically Plattsburgh Ave. last summer. DPW director informed taxpayers that paving process for the area had been moved to top priority and would be taking place September late fall. This did not happen and now the area is near totally a rock zone in the East bound lane of Plattsburgh Avenue leading to vehicles driving in the wrong lane creating another safety issue. About the only way to use Plattsburgh Ave. is now to take helicopter from North Ave. to corner of belt line.DPW director dropped the ball on this one once again.
  • 365 Riverside Ave Burlington VT 05401, USA - Burlington Electric
    On a weekly basis vehicles are parking and blocking access to the Riverside multi use path. Cyclists and pedestrians (people) must revert to the green belt or the bike lane (road) to pass.
  • 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.
  • 351-455 North Avenue Burlington, Vermont - Burlington Electric
    Across from 432.
  • 57-59 N Winooski Ave Burlington, VT 05401, USA - Burlington Electric
    This is a toxic site. It is also my repair man. It is out of control and poisonous and needs to be addressed.
  • 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?
  • 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.
  • Sidewalks Acknowledged
    36 Walnut St Burlington, VT 05401, USA - Burlington Electric
    This section of the sidewalk and green belt on Walnut st next to the community garden should be re-done. There is a whole section of the sidewalk missing that floods when it rains, and the green belt has large chunks of an old driveway in it. Please improve this area! Thank you!
  • 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.
  • 436-448 College Street Burlington, Vermont - Burlington Electric
    The College Street Bike Path ends at the intersection of College and South Prospect. It is very hard to activate the left turn signal to turn from College St onto South Prospect when using a bike. Since this is the end of the bike path and many bicyclists will turn left it would make sense to mark this area like what has been done at the exit of Trinity Campus on Colchester Ave at East Ave. Please place the marker as far to the left as possible to help bicyclists avoid vehicles trying to get around them.
  • 411 Colchester Avenue Burlington Vermont - Burlington Electric

    The signage on the Colchester Ave bike lane is such that it allows residents to legally park in the lane at the top of the hill. The no parking needs to be moved down the hill to the point where the bike lane transitions from outside the parking to the curb. There is a section as seen in the photo where the car is legally parked according to the signs but blocks the bike lane causing bikes to have to swerve out into traffic while going up a busy steep hill. PLEASE DO NOT ALLOW PARKING IN BIKE LANE!
