  • Ne Park Gainesville, Florida - 311GNVPolice Sector 3
    The trash problem has continued at NE Park, Partiers have moved from the racquetball courts to the wooded SW corner which abuts homes along 13th Ave. Individuals have moved two plastic chairs from tennis courts to this newly trashed area. During the day they congregate under the picnic pavilion drinking and smoking dope. This is right by the playground. It would be appreciated if officers walked this area at night and sometimes during the day. Thanks to all who have to deal with this issue.
  • Ne Blvd Gainesville, FL 32601 - 311GNVPolice Sector 3
    There is no place to safely cross 8th Ave between Main and 7th St. (and the crossing at Main is not very safe because of turning traffic). It is very scary especially during rush hours. It would increase pedestrian safety and help unify the north and south halves of our neighborhood to put some kind of pedestrian crosswalk near NE Blvd and 8th Ave.

    GNV311 is being used as a reporting tool primarily which is great, but you guys are missing the big picture when it comes to being "citizen-centered" and meeting the citizens where they are at. Every issue reported is closed and citizens are then forwarded to a phone number or the city's code enforcement internal ticketing system which has a horrible user experience. You can't even link to a specific issue in the Public Access site. It makes it very cumbersome to follow up on issues and keep the city accountable. You guys should leave issues open in GNV311 until they are resolved. You don't have to change any internal processes, but leave the tickets open and the information flowing. Please get this to Anthony Lyons and the folks at the top focused on Citizen Centered Gainesville.

    Ne 5th Avenue At Ne 7th Street Gainesville, Florida - 311GNVPolice Sector 3
    The stop sign on the NE side of the intersection usually has a very helpful white stripe painted on the pavement next to it. Now, the line is almost totally invisible, and this is a blind intersection that needs a visible warning besides the sign.
  • 600 Ne 11th Street Gainesville, Florida - 311GNVPolice Sector 3
    There is a telephone pole in on the NE corner of the lot located at 600 NE 11th Street. It was damaged by a fallen tree. The damage includes three steel reinforcement cables that are now completely slack. The pole is in a weakened state and I fear that it could fall on my vehicles or block access to my drive way.
  • 68 Ne 8 Ave Gainesville, FL 32601 - 311GNVPolice Sector 3
    Medians on NE 8th Ave are all nicely bricked and landscaped, EXCEPT the most visible one closest to Main Street. When it is rebuilt, perhaps travel lanes can be visibly narrowed slightly to discourage speeding by east bound traffic (leaving wide 4 lane section and entering narrow 2 lane section of 8th Ave).

    Northeast Park Gainesville, Florida - 311GNVPolice Sector 3
    While on daily early evening walks through NE Park I've noticed an increase in people openly drinking alcohol and smoking who knows what especially around the racquetball court areas. I would suggest that the park service remove the white plastic yard chairs from the area as I see them at times scattered about the park by partiers. Police should exit their patrol vehicles from the NE 13th Ave side of park and walk in to witness this behavior. There's also a black SUV taking up multiple spaces piled high with debris that is a permanent fixture in the north parking lot. The drinking, smoking and drugging going on related to this vehicle does not promote a safe and inviting recreational environment for our community. I'm wondering how long this would go unaddressed at Westside or Kanapaha Parks?? Please correct these issues. Thank you.
  • 2-50 Ne 9th St Gainesville, FL 32601, USA - 311GNVPolice Sector 3
    In the left turn lane going east onto University Ave, only two cars had time to turn, and there was no following blinking yellow light allowance and no University Ave traffic to cause the light to change to red. Three more cars had to wait an additional 10 minutes for the light to change. Timing should be looked at.

    500-524 Northeast 9th Street Gainesville, Florida - 311GNVPolice Sector 3
    Hello, I have noticed for awhile now (over a year) that there is a trailer parked in the street, not permanently but is there most of the time especially during the weekends. The problem is that the trailer while parked on the street covers half way of the bicycle lane making real dangerous for bicyclist going north on 9th Street. I have experienced this situation many times my self and see other bikers almost get hit by Cars. I have seen the owners of the trailer watching the situation and appears to me they don't care. I kindly ask to please do something about this situation that is putting bicyclist life at risk. If you need more info please let me know,
    Thank You

    1311 North Main Street Gainesville, Florida - 311GNVPolice Sector 3
    The crosswalk here used to cross Main St. is heavily used, but has no flashing lights like other crosswalks in town that are far less used. My 3 year old daughter and I regularly cross here, and often have to avoid being hit by cars who disobey the right of way of the pedestrians. It's scary. Please look at installing a flashing signal as soon as possible. Thanks!

    A tree was taken out by a car in November 2018.
    We hope it will be replaced soon.
