  • Essex St & North St Salem, MA, 01970, USA - City of Salem
    The city just changed the pedestrian crossing at this intersection so cars get a green light at the same time pedestrians get a walk signal.
    This is very dangerous as this is a very busy intersection with cars speeding down Essex Street to catch the green light. Please change it back to where pedestrians get a dedicated walk signal.
    You can't have pedestrians (a lot of kids cross here) trying to compete with cars. Again its crazy having the walk signal and the green light for cars at the same time.

    Recently Salem announced free meals at all schools. Why? Many families are more than able to either send food or pay for their child's food at school. Taxes keep going up, we are also spending a large amount of money on parks even though very few people use them and maintenance is non existent. The new park on New Derby is crazy. No parking and no parent should want their child to ride a bike to that location. Who is paying for all this?

    does not exist and need to be added on Lafayette street in several places. The street is too wide to only have crosswalks and no traffic signals. Children are going to school there and need to be able to cross the street at any time not just when the paid guard is helping them.

    The lines have yet to be repainted in our neighborhood. At a minimum the crosswalks need to be done. School is well back into session and with the new playground improvements this is a busy stretch of Street. watching from my window and being a walker I have seen way too may close calls as kids and dog walkers wait where we know the cross walks should be and cars speed past because there are no lines. I also have witnessed several cars with out of state plates driving on the wrong side of the road because they, likely assume it to be alone way street because there are no line. This needs to become a priority. Bridge Street Neck seems like it's always the last neighborhood to get attention.

    Question: Why are some in favor of an "Addiction Recovery" facility vs. 4 new condominiums (8 units) on the site of the old Ward 2 Social Club? I can understand concerns re. traffic but, don't the neighbors feel that a slight uptick in traffic would far outweigh the cons of having an addiction recovery center in the neighborhood?

    I saw that the last time someone broached this topic, on this site, it was taken down after receiving some fairly heated responses from neighbors. Is reporting potholes and graffiti more important than the safety of our families, specifically those of us who have young, impressionable children?

    The question that I have, as I'm sure others do, as well, is how do we stop this from happening? Can't the abutting neighbors (whose names are public due their pending lawsuit) realize that a new condominium, with the proposed beach access and other improvements, will raise land values for all and beautify the Bridge Street Neck neighborhood? Why would anyone choose an addiction clinic, or the abandoned social club, over a new development that will improve the entire neighborhood?

    What time is construction at Magic Muffler allowed to begin? I thought it was 8am but they got started with all the noise just after 7am.
  • Salem Common Salem, Massachusetts - City of Salem
    8 Lampposts in the Common are out.
    Many others have dim bulbs
  • Essex Salem, Massachusetts - City of Salem
    For the past several nights a group of 3-5 homeless have taken up residence in the alleyway across from CVS on Essex Street bordering the new hotel construction. They have been arriving at 2:00 to 5:00 am each morning, yelling, arguing, swearing, screaming and littering. My family members have been awakened by them on each of the occasions. Many people live in the Condos and Apartments in this area and this is becoming a problem we need help controlling.

    The river walk along Leslie's retreat park is great. There is a very real danger of drowning here however. If you look in the North river there are new wood walls on either side of the river. These walls offer absolutely no grip or hand or foot holds. If someone were to fall in their only option would be to swim up to 100 yards possibly against a strong current to be able to climb out near O'Rourke's.
    At mid tide the wall is seven feet high with no hope of a person touching bottom.

    Is there some way the city can put even some makeshift 2*4 ladders inside these walls in a couple places in each side?

    Honestly, especially in winter, the next person who falls in here or has to go in after a child or dog is going to die. There is no way to get out of the water even if you are in great shape. It's a flat wall. You couldn't design a better trap if you tried.

    Please consider this issue, it's completely unsafe.

  • Bridge Street City of Salem, MA - City of Salem
    It’s VERY unsafe that people have to climb over a snow bank that is on the sidewalk. there are also no openings at the corners. For a four way stop (used regularly by many commuters, day and night) there should be cleared paths. What is the plan to remove this?
  • 44 Boston Street Salem, Massachusetts - City of Salem
    On the corner where Dunkin Donuts is with Walgreens on Boston Street and Bridge Street is very deadly to try to cross even with the crosswalk no one will stop multiple times my self and my children have almost gotten hit trying to walk across the street to Dunkin Donuts nobody stops there is a crosswalk but that nobody sees it I really think you should invest in time to think about putting a proper cross walk light there for safety of everyone

    I'm sure I speak for all of us when I say thank you for the rapid repaving job on Webb/Collins/etc, but when is the crew coming back to finish the job?
