  • 65 New Derby St Salem, MA 01970, USA - City of Salem
    Hi. People constantly block the Washington-New Derby and Norman-Margin intersections despite the white Xs. I believe we used to have the entire areas filled with crosshatch lines. Any chance we can add some paint and maybe help prevent complete gridlock come October? Thanks!
  • 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.

    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?

    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
  • 33-35 E Collins St Salem, MA 01970, USA - City of Salem
    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.
  • 93 Washington St Salem, MA 01970, USA - City of Salem
    A committee that is funded with city tax dollars and has several city paid members is actively pursuing and promoting fund raising in regards to a ballot question. This is a clear.violation of MA election laws
  • 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!
  • 1 Swampscott Road Salem, MA 01970, United States of America - City of Salem

  • 73r North St Salem, MA 01970, USA - City of Salem

    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.

  • 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
  • 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.
