These same cars seem to be parked in the 30 minute zone all day every day. Its very hard to find a parking spot now that's its October, Resident parking signs every where, Holyoke square is now restricted to Holyoke insurance and tour buses. How about putting in parking meters in those 30 minute spots on Gedney.
Many people have requested information on repairs to Highland Ave and Boston St. The answer is always its been assigned. Today a new sidewalk is being put down in front of NSMC. The condition of the road creates a clear danger to people on the sidewalk so why are we not fixing the roads? It would be really nice if someone can answer this with an intelligent response with a timeline. Please. The section in question is the city's and has been in horrendous condition for over 5 years. If your answer is we are waiting on the state then please give updates on that process. I pay taxes to the city and state so provide some details.
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.
With students now back at SSU, it has become apparent that there are a number of landlords renting apartments to more than the allowable number of tenants. And this past weekend, there were several large and loud alcohol-fueled parties resulting in disruptive crowds and lots of litter. At one location on Linden Street on Saturday at 11pm, there were approximately 40 drunk students acting in an antisocial manner. We know that the police need to be called when this happens. Can you please advise us on what other steps we should take to see longer-term solutions to this growing problem and greater accountability for landlords engaged in illegal renting? Also, is there a greater role that the SSU Police Department could play in responding to student parties held off campus and in holding SSU students accountable? We would appreciate your guidance.
The sidewalk is blocked with 5 or 6 large potted flowers. It is illegal to block a sidewalk or park on a sidewalk. I dont know how they get away with it. Corner of butler st halfway up rawlins. If you park there they leave notes on your car.
This 15 foot stump of a maple tree has been left standing for years because a telephone guy wire was connected to it. The cable was released this summer when all of the poles on the street were re-worked. The tree has started to grow fungus as seen in the photo. Please take the stump down this winter 2019. Thank you.
There's tons of broken glass strewn all over Collins Cove beach. Kids are going to get hurt in the sand. Is there a plan for the city to help with pick up? We're doing what we can. I don't want to see anyone get hurt.
