Notified About

  • 1208 Westover Hills Boulevard Richmond, VA - Forest View
    Trash, Cardboard Boxes, and a Couch that has been there for weeks littering the property. The dumpsters are wide open allowing for trash to blow out and on to neighboring properties.
  • 4536 East Seminary Avenue Richmond, VA - Ginter Park
    This tree drops large branches down onto the street (and cars) each time we have a storm. It's already totaled one car on the street.
  • 1802 Chantilly Street Richmond, VA - Monument Avenue Park
    Several large potholes have reopened in front of the West End Vol. Rescue Squad, impeding the entry and egress of, and causing damage to, the emergency vehicles.
  • 2917 West Grace St Richmond, VA - The Museum District
    There have been feral cats allowed to come and go as they please, via a cat door in the back of the house, for the last two years I have been living on this street. Up to 15 at times. The home is owned, but unoccupied. The owner comes by sporadically and dumps cat food into bowls in the back yard and leaves opend canned cat food laying about as well. The smell (especially during the hotter days) is foul to the point where I am unable to enjoy my own front porch. I can only imagine the state of the interior, as the exterior is overrun with weeds and the garden has become a litterbox.
  • 825 Boroughbridge Rd Richmond, VA 23225, USA - Westover
    Bamboo has overgrown the backyard of this property and has spread to neighboring lots. There is also standing water in the backyard, resulting in mosquitos. The sideyard of the lot been fenced in, but since the fence was built, the grass has not been cut and is becoming overgrown with grass and weeds (4 feet tall).
  • 1700 Monument Ave Richmond, VA 23220, USA - The Fan
    Larger signs are needed to make traffic yield at the monument. Cars travel too fast down Monument Ave at this intersection. Two pedestrians were hit and injured yesterday while trying to cross the street. A crossing guard is needed for Orchard House School on Allen Ave.
