    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.

  • Boston St & Bridge St Salem, MA, 01970, USA - City of Salem
    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.

    Tavern on the Square has blocked off the public sidewalk.
  • 50 Broad St Salem, MA, 01970, USA - City of Salem
    The speeding on Broad Street has risen to a new level. Cars going 30, 40 mph and faster travel with impunity. Crossing the street at any crosswalk is life threatening. Please enforce the speed limit!

  • 79-99 Collins St Salem, MA 01970, USA - City of Salem
    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?
  • 1 Swampscott Road Salem, MA 01970, United States of America - City of Salem
    The city has posted 25 mph signs illegally, in violation of both federal and state guidelines.

    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?
  • 35 Flint Street Salem Massachusetts - City of Salem
    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.
