    The CVS in Porter Square has senior hours posted (if one knows where to look) from 9-10 daily. Based on three visits in the last two weeks, they are being ignored (and there isn't even a prominent sign). Often more people who are clearly not seniors in the store during those hours than seniors and it is common to see people wandering around inside without masks.

    And the sanitizing wipe dispenser in the entry furthest from Mass Ave often has no wipes available.

    If the city is serious about mask use and/or senior hours, it may be time for a forceful reminder.

    This cell tower box violates the noise ordinance. It has been reported and “fixed” multiple times. It is back to being noisy again.

    Isn't it illegal in Cambridge to rent out a residential parking space? This is the Norfolk St side of property.

    My partner and I were biking toward Central Square when a driver came behind us honking and eventually screaming that we need to be in the bike lane. When I pointed out that the bike lane was for traveling in the opposite direction, she screamed expletives and drove around us THROUGH the bike lane herself to pass us, running the stop sign.

    We weren't breaking any rules and we were moving in the direction of the travel lane. I am so sick of being threatened on these residential streets. Can we please have a safe route between Inman and Central Squares? Can we please have infrastructure that isn't paint on a road? Can we please regularly cite drivers who endanger people on bicycles? I don't want to become the next white bike in Cambridge. I'm sick of feeling like I might instigate someone to hurt or kill me just for existing in their way. Isn't Cambridge supposed to be different?

    The driver was a woman with a green SUV and New Hampshire plates, but it doesn't matter because this isn't the first or the last time.

    It is heartbreaking the extent that Lorenz Park and the area around the library and CRLS has been allowed to decay over the past several months. What was once a beautiful public gathering spot for all, is becoming a blight on the neighborhood.

    The park has not been maintained. Grass is overgrown, trash overflowing, human feces and other hazardous materials litter the bushes.

    Despite having a shelter available in the Field House, encampments around the park are more numerous that ever, and the people squatting here never wear masks. This morning, a young lady was brushing her teeth and spitting on the steps and walkway in front of the rindge room of the library, while a needle was found under one of the park benches. This is unacceptable considering taxpayers are paying for CPD to be parked on Dana Street full time with a sharps bucket in the road.

    What was once the vibrant heart of the neighborhood, is now unnecessarily a place to be avoided. Yet another way the city has failed its residents during this time.

    People are constantly dumping garbage here. Can we get a sign stating it’s illegally. Unfair for school department staff to deal with the mess. We also have a rat problem in the neighborhood and this can’t be a good idea. The stuff this am is from a resident on Broadway. The magazines have the name and address.

    Silk Road restaurant at 645 Cambridge St, Cambridge, MA 02141 flushed their grease system into their alley and into our property, (27/29 Lambert st) which leads to a storm drain. The grease is thick and is an obvious bait for rodents. This is NOT the first time they have gone the lazy route for "cleaning" their grease. Their exhaust system is a fire hazard for the entire neighborhood.

    I called DPW and was told to submit this request. Since the Cambridgeport School has been closed due to C-19, there has been an increase in illegal activity around the school including an attempted break in at the school and people congregating without masks/social distancing. There is also an increase in broken bottles and trash. I am one of the neighbors. We would like to request temporary fencing (high not low) to block off the back of the building. Please do not block the parking lot as some neighbors use it. You may also want to block access to the playground if the City plans to keep it closed as it is used almost daily although not much - usually young children with a masked adult. (The one time there were young teens there without masks/social distancing, I did call the police as I was worried about their health and the health of their families.) We have been in touch with CPS staff member Vedad Konjic about the fencing; he tells us that DPW manages the grounds, not him (he is the Facilities Manager who works with us on a regular basis.). Thank you for your attention to this matter.
