  • 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?
  • 132 North St Salem, MA 01970, USA - City of Salem
    Salon at 132 north has plowed its lot such that several enormous mounds of snow are blocking the sidewalk, forcing pedestrians into the street. It is now 5 days since the storm.

    New line painting on the Hawthorne Hotel parking lot on Essex Street leaves no room for pedestrians.
  • 370 Essex Street Salem, Massachusetts - City of Salem
    I'm not sure what happened to the old ones, but could we please get bike racks at the Library. Thanks
  • Sidewalk Repair Acknowledged
    4 Hazel St Salem, Massachusetts - City of Salem
    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!
  • 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?
  • Proctor St Salem, MA 01970, USA - City of Salem
    I am seeing rats in my yard running through to my neighbor's. There is an empty lot next to the garage on this street where people dump trash. Seeing rats there too, could be all the construction in the surrounding area as well. Either way I would like to get rid if them. They come out in the day. I won't sit in my patio.
  • Congress St. And Derby Street Salem, Massachusetts - City of Salem
    I was unsure where to report this. A car with NY plates, the driver opens car door and dumps trash on the street and drives away. Unfortunately this happens often. See picture taken as car was driving away.
  • 40 Boardman Street Salem, Massachusetts - City of Salem
    Absentee landlord has not maintained rental property for 2 years. Home, yard, electrical wires, many windows completely encased in overgrown vines. Safety issue for tenants. Overgrown vines make the sidewalk unpassable.
  • 106 Bridge Street Salem, Massachusetts - City of Salem
    What time is construction at Magic Muffler allowed to begin? I thought it was 8am but they got started with all the noise just after 7am.
  • 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.

    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
