  • 2-4 Charles St Salem, MA 01970, USA - City of Salem
  • 17 Mooney Rd Salem 01970, United States - City of Salem
    This entire street needs to be replaced.
  • Bell Apartments On Bridge Street Salem, Massachusetts - City of Salem
    This spot has still not been cleared. It's a crosswalk that's normally very used and hasn't been all week. Our kids can't get to their school bus stop. Terribly dangerous and being completely ignored.
  • 68 Essex St Salem, MA 01970, USA - City of Salem
    This busy street has just one official crosswalk on this stretch of road, and the lines are very faint! It hasn't been painted in years. People cross here all the time to get to the common (including many children and dogs) and drivers whiz by very quickly. Please please please repaint the lines, and maybe add more for visibility (like the green paint that's in other crosswalks). Signage would also help.
  • 95 Washington St Salem, Massachusetts - City of Salem
    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?
  • Canal St And Mill St Salem, Massachusetts - City of Salem
    Just as what happened at Canal and Loring/Jefferson, the light timing has been changed for left turns and it is terrible. Perhaps if it was a two-lane the whole street it would work, but the way it is now is horrible. Backed up all wkd and Friday night rush hour because the left turn signal lets 3 cars go through! It was backed up past bagel world, with no communication from the city of this change, etc. That would not have helped though, as the timing is terrible. It should be like it was before, where it stays green for a while just for left turns. You have people backed up who all want to go straight but cannot because all the left-turn people are stuck. Honestly, it seems the new parking director does not actually DRIVE around Salem, but walks to and from his job each day. The light at Loring/Jefferson now creates backups for over a mile regularly because of the left-turn yellow flashing lasting for 3 seconds. Again, might work if it was a two-lane the whole way, but it is not. Please fix this issue.
  • 1 Commercial St Salem 01970, United States - City of Salem
    Six post lights along the river walkway are out or had the tops broken. It makes it unsafe to walk after dusk. This walkway is a mess. You would think the businesses along here would take some pride.
  • 35 Flint Street #304 Salem, Massachusetts - City of Salem
    The newly paved sections of Flint St do not dovetail smoothly into previously existing pavement, especially at the intersections. There is a serious crack and ridge at intersections of Flint with Bridge, Federal and Essex Streets. The one at Essex and Flint is particularly bad, and will cause damage to car tires and rims as it gets worse. I had assumed the problem would be rectified by now, but nothing has happened, so I'm thinking you're not aware of the problem.
  • Washington Street Salem, Massachusetts - City of Salem
    Coming from Canal St to turn to Mill St not working,arrow wont turn green, set in traffic for ever... also will do the same sometimes coming from East Washington St to go straight to Mill St. Please fix. Getting out of work is becoming frustrating dealing with traffic and now on top of it the traffic lights too.
  • 75 Willson Street Salem, Massachusetts - City of Salem

    I am concerned about the regular, INTENTIONAL feeding of junk food to wildlife that has been going on for years in the driveway of Olde Salem Greens Golf Course. I have reported this issue to Park & Recreation and to Golf Course staff, to no avail. Today's "offering" is a 15 foot long swath of bread, crackers or chips, pink heart candy, popcorn, and chocolate bars.

    The problem with leaving this food out is multifold.
    1) It is unsightly litter.
    2) It is an unnatural and unhealthful diet for wildlife. Feeding the wrong diet to deer can kill them. Feeding bread to waterfowl causes deadly angel wing disease.
    3) It attracts and creates nuisance animals - rats, raccoons, coyotes. It is well-known that feeding coyotes habituates them to people, leading to potentially dangerous interactions between coyotes and pets or even people.
    4) This is a popular dog-walking spot, and this food is unhealthful and potentially toxic to dogs.

    Would you please speak with the nice gentleman who I believe lives across the street and I believe is the person feeding wildlife on city property, and ask him to stop. Thank you.

  • 134 Bridge St Salem 01970, United States - City of Salem
    Dumpster overflowing- AGAIN!
    Not acceptable.
  • 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.
