Almost 1000 vehicles (including 100 commercial vehicles) use our street as a racetrack each day. Four other nearby streets as well. Police spokesman said to media "there's nothing we can do unless we catch them." DUH! I don't believe that the police can or will do anything so we need other options. Speed humps can help along with no truck signs. Speed cameras would be great and a cash cow for our city but Mass. currently has no legislation. Traffic is a city wide problem as we continue to lose our owner occupied homes which then become rental property which increases traffic and crime which worsens the problem. Chicopee needs to wake up as we our losing our neighborhood identities and becoming more like Springfield and Holyoke.
Just my opinion but the back entrance to Big Y, Charter & B.J's needs to be closed off and all traffic needs to enter from Memorial Dr. There is way too much going on at that intersection when it's possible to use the lights on Memorial Dr to get into that area. All other venues are entered from there so can that one.
Extreme speeding on Wheatland Ave and Sunnymead to Archie cut through. Neighborhood is densely populated with many children walking and playing. Cars go excessively fast and I have witnessed on numerous occasions, children almost getting hit. This needs to be addressed! There is a school in this area and it is a danger to the children. I feel there needs to be speed bumps on these streets surrounding the school area. Please help, I am speaking on behalf of many neighbors. Thank you
This has been an issue for 4 years. Their dogs bark all day, all night, everyday. I am moving because of these dogs. There is so peaceful enjoyment in this neighborhood. They get out outside for hours all year and do care that the dogs barkss for hours upon hours. Something needs to be done immediately. I barely sleep because the dogs bark all hours of the night (usually 2am-5am). I try to take naps after work, there goes the dogs... barking as usual.
Ok how many times is the city going to put Band-Aids over all of these potholes that go from Fairfield Ave to Springfield Street before it's actually paved right? If it helps, I have a few extra rolls of duct tape the city can have! Seriously though, I just don't understand the lack of care that everybody that runs this city has. And please don't tell me there's no money because that would be complete BS!! Not with the amount of taxes everybody pays every year!! Can we get with the program please? It's getting sickening dodging potholes in every street in the city!!

Cross walk between Lucky Strike and Alden CU is so faded that it is barely noticeable. Also, people don’t stop at cross walks anymore.. if 1 in 100 people stopped with someone at the crosswalk, I’d be surprised.. even when a barrel and sign were put there, people blew by it.
