    1-39 Granville Ave Medford, MA, 02155, USA - Medford

    Hello,

    I’m writing as a concerned dog owner and resident of Medford. There is a safety issue that seems to be getting worse with people not having dogs on leashes and not controlling these dogs in the Tufts park. While it’s great that so many owners use the park responsibly and do leash and control their dogs, a few are ruining it for the many. It’s a matter of when, not if, someone’s dog and maybe somebody is going to get hurt as a result. Please help to enforce leash law in this park so that all can safely enjoy the park, especially during this time of passive park use.

    Thank you. We appreciate your attention to this.

  • Willis Avenue Medford, Massachusetts - Medford
    Willis Avenue between Ellis Avenue and Hicks is terrible and an accident waiting to happen. I have seen cars with broken side mirrors on the street as well.
    This street either needs to be made a one-way or a designated one side parking only. The school pick up and drop off makes this street very Difficult and hazardous to maneuver. Foolish people drive too fast or lack common courtesy, lacking an understanding of how to properly navigate a two-way street with parking on both sides.
    Perhaps a morning or afternoon someone should be sent to observe. Preferably not in a marked vehicle so that traffic will act as usual.

  • 67 Winchester St Medford, MA, 02155, USA - Medford
    A video camera is mounted between 67 and 69 Winchester ST (pole #645). I'm unsure of the ownership or legality of its placement but a camera with IR capability monitoring and pointed directly at residential property 24/7 is a bit unsettling.
  • Willis Ave. Medford, Massachusetts - Medford
    The rush-hour traffic on Willis Avenue is getting increasingly bad. It’s difficult to maneuver when both sides of the street have parking. Also it seems like a lot of drivers are being funneled that way through map apps.
  • 31 Clayton Ave Medford, MA - Medford
    This car has been sitting here for several months already. It deteriorates quickly and it's eye sore on this street.
  • Warner Street Medford, Massachusetts - Medford
    The residents of Warner Street in Medford, would like to know if their street will be included in the repaving that is planned for Harvard Street. Warner Street in Medford is a continuation of Harvard Street in Medford, and it runs from the RR bridge to Pearson Road in Somerville and it is a mess. It would make send to continue the repaving from Harvard to Warner. Does anyone know what the plan is?

    Moving forward - maybe it is time for Medford to re-think their street sweeping strategy. In some neighborhoods, it may work to have all cars moved all day, because they have larger driveways etc. However, in our neighborhood, South Medford, it just does not work. It is more densely populated than some other sections of Medford. Perhaps Medford could implement a better system like some of our surrounding cities that have street sweeping. Those cities street sweep almost year round, except in the winter months, and they also sweep only one side of the street at a time. If Medford updated their system then all cars in one specific area would not all have to move all day to get their streets properly swept.. Thank you.
  • 9 Albion St Medford, Massachusetts - Medford
    It may be possible the key is broken and he manually has to enter the car triggering the alarm? The alarm goes off every single morning and runs for 5-10 seconds before the car peels off.
  • 297 Harvard Street Medford, Massachusetts - Medford

    This pothole is so deep that any person biking over it is going to faceplant and risk breaking their neck. It is in a area with very low light increasing the risk. Actually there are two potholes in a short stretch of road.
    Please stop paving Winchester street all the time and pave Harvard St. instead.

    Why doesn't Medford clean the side streets more than 2x a year? Our neighbor Somerville cleans their side streets EVERY WEEK. Some of streets in Medford look disgusting, especially this year with the black fungus causing the leaves to fall early.

    If the city enforces parking restrictions, the ticket money will more than likely pay for the additional cleaning.

    Just a thought. . .
