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.
There is an immediate need to grease the swing that screeches all day into the evening now that children are out in the playground. I live across the street and the sound is constant causing me to keep my windows closed. I'd very much appreciate attention to this swing maintenance immediately. Thank you. Roberta Chadis
Again the stoplight from federal and Boston a cross with a lights are multiple children cross that and again nobody stops they will sooner run you over you have to stand in the middle of the street to get somebody to stop which is not safe multiple people and myself have reported this issue I'm not understanding if you can't fix the light can you at least put a pedestrian crossing sign it shouldn't be that hard can fix everything else in Salem but this for the safety of the children of our city you can't fix it that's a little insane don't you think
The sidewalk between 2a and 4 hazel street is in terrible condition. There are disabled and elderly people that use it and I've witnessed them almost fall several times and complain about it. I've personally tripped over it and twisted my ankle as well from it. Also, in winter, ice pools in the dips/cracks, creating an even bigger hazard. Please fix to keep the sidewalk safe for pedestrians!
There should be a pedestrian crossing light at the corner of Boston and Bridge Streets. I saw a younger woman today struggling to cross Boston Street with young children today. Crossing is problematic especially for elderly pedestrians walking to the Life Center on Bridge.
Someone has placed “keep off the grass” signs in the curbside grass along this stretch. First, this is a public way and dogs are free to use this space (provided their responsible humans clean up after them). Second, your neighbors REALLY don’t want to look at your awful “dumping dog” stencils. Please remove.
