This is an very busy tourist section between viewing the bewitched statue, the tours, and all the restaurants near. A crossing signal would be a great addition here especially with all the night life around here and many people walk home or to the hotel if local it would make it a lot safer the only crossing signals on this road are at the tavern in the square intersection and the intersection at the train station I think adding one in the middle would be smart and safer with the amount of people walking around that intersection and cars driving, its always a traffic jam.
Please pass to the Salem PD: two drivers ran the red light while the crosswalk signal was lit (6:14am 1/12/17). I cross this intersection weekday mornings between 6:10-6:18 am and evenings between 5-7 pm. I see an average of 4 cars a week run the red light at this intersection. Twice between mid-November and end of December I was nearly Hit when crossing IN the crosswalk while the crossing light was ON due to drivers running the red light. This issue is getting worse. Despite the reflective clothing I wear drivers are ignoring the lights. Someone is going to get seriously hurt or killed. PLEASE do something to address this issue.
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
I bought this house in 2012 I have been calling about this tree every year since then! Been told it's a healthy tree etc.etc. this tree is causing a major trip hazard narrowing sidewalk, is not wheel chair functional it has and is causing damage to my properties retaining wall and steps. Has also damaged my sewer line. Even more alarming is it's grossly oversized roots are uprooting earth on and around the main GAS LINE! as well as water line. I have posted several times on this site as well multiple documented calls a year to no avail 6 years! I have watched lesser issue trees removed in the neighbor root pruned or removed. THIS TREE AND ITS ROOTS CLEARLY POSE MULTIPLE AND POTENTIALLY SERIOUS HAZARDS!
There has been a blue van parked on federal street for about 6-8 weeks. We've called the police station already and they said it would be towed, but that never happened. This van hasn't moved in months and is taking up two resident spots. It doesn't even have a resident sticker, it has a visitor pass. It's a Blue Ford Freestar Minivan, license plate 5FT747
For those of us who live close to or nearby the Salem Common, the thought of having the Halloween carnival on the common, is unbelievable. It is a residential area, & homes by & around there mostly depend upon on street parking. Even with the orange 'residents only' signs, out fo town visitors park anyway. Let alone the fact of the noise & trash, plus the Commons's grass will be totally ruined. IT is NOT a carnival site!!
