Notified About

  • 407 Arbana Drive Ann Arbor, Michigan - Ann Arbor
    There has been an ongoing problem with a smell (stench!) of sewage emanating from Arborview Blvd, between Maple Ridge and Linda Vista. I called several months ago and was told it would be temporary although it has lasted for certainly more than a year. It is a problem for all my neighbors and makes it very unpleasant to walk in the area. The smell is very strong and noxious and seeps into houses. Neighbors report having been told various explanations but the fact is that it's unacceptable. Is this problem being worked on? Is anyone paying attention to this? Is there someone to whom we should address our concerns?
  • 355-399 S Division St Ann Arbor, Michigan - Ann Arbor
    This bike lane needs to be repaved *before* the street is repaved as the auto lanes of the street are in great shape. Please add this on a project to-do list and don't give it to the pothole guys, they tell me it's fine.
  • 524 W Stadium Ann Arbor, MI - Ann Arbor
    The crosswalk across Stadium to get to Pioneer HS is on one of the busiest streets in town and sees near misses with our kids every day. These kids deserve a flashing light like there are on Plymouth Rd. to help them cross, especially as the days get shorter. Please take this seriously before something tragic happens.
  • Other issue Acknowledged
    Granger And State Ann Arbor, Michigan - Ann Arbor
    I can't tell you how many near accidents I have witnessed as people (often young children) attempt to cross the street going across State at Granger. Cars on State are not stopping. This is especially an issue when their is a field hockey match or any other U of M sport. There needs to be a traffic light or a stop sign or at least a sign that has drivers stopping for pedestrians and bicyclists. Steven M Stein MD 248-302-0649 drsteinmd@yahoo.com
  • 2400 Geddes Avenue Ann Arbor, Michigan - Ann Arbor
    This issue is everywhere so I chose an arbitrary address. The Ann Arbor dot Com uses throwaway newspaper to try and gather new customers. I am told throwing advertising on our property is legal. I do not believe it is. However, these wind up blocking the storm drains and they turn property owners into default workers for this rag and they litter up everyone's lawn and driveway. I think the city of Ann Arbor should consider making it a public issue, seeking comment from citizens (do vote here ! ) and then informing the 'newspaper' that they will have to have people OPT - IN (not out) to allow this on their property. I have called the advertising rag at least six times and they won't stop this practice. Let's change this. We have the right to insist they stop.
  • Sidewalk issue Acknowledged
    300-304 3rd Street Ann Arbor, MI 48103, USA - Ann Arbor
    Please make ADA compliant
  • 410-416 N State St Ann Arbor, MI 48104, USA - Ann Arbor
    You have a crosswalk but no sidewalk going to it. Just a muddy mess, if someone falls and gets hurt who will pay for that?
  • Arborview Blvd And Paul St Ann Arbor, MI - Ann Arbor
    If you drive or walk along Arborview between Wesley Ave and Maple Ridge, you will smell a very strong odor of sewage in this area. This has been ongoing over the last several months and it is fairly consistent.
  • Huron Parkway Ann Arbor, Michigan - Ann Arbor
    At the present crosswalk on Huron Parkway, by the entrance to Huron Highschool, the lighting is very dim. Adding to that, cars move very quickly down this street. Students riding the City bus (a large portion due to cuts in bussing), can barely be seen when crossing, once the dark fall and winter hours settle in, unless they are in a huge gaggle with their peers. I would suggest that this is a place for one of those blinking crosswalk signs before a student is seriously injured.
  • 915 Barton Dr Ann Arbor, Michigan - Ann Arbor
    I love the new collapsible traffic control devices at some crosswalks. Please install a set in front of Northside school! Ppl coming in off highway speed and don't know local law.
  • 2375 Hill Street Ann Arbor, Michigan - Ann Arbor
    I took photos. They show that, from Geddes going East, and from Hill, waiting to enter Geddes, there is NO visibility. When stopped at white line waiting to enter you look to the left up Geddes, and you see a Berm of soil with a lot of vegetation. The Berm needs to be reshaped and the vegetation killed off the incline for good, with tarps to stop regrowth. This is a long term problem that now needs a solution. The first photo is Car on Hill, looking east up Geddes. Second is Looking West.
  • Sewer smell Archived
    1001 Arborview Boulevard Ann Arbor, Michigan - Ann Arbor
    Again, really bad as weather warms up. Thought a fix was in place?
