A neighbor who requested information on disposing of a “moldy old sofa” was advised to transport it to the recycling center or to schedule a pickup. Public Works pickup, however, requires that your driver's license needs to match the current address, and this student has a parent’s address on the license. And the recycling center doesn't take residential waste. That policy would seem to explain why we see so many old couches left on the curb. I'm sure it costs the city more to send a crew to pick up furniture left illegally on the street than it would for the DPW to be a bit more flexible on accepting items from people like this person who wants do do the right thing.

THIS COMPLAINT HAS BEEN POSTED MULTIPLE TIMES STARTING IN DECEMBER.
WHY CAN'T THIS BE ENFORCED ??? IS THE CITY TOO AFRAID TO TALK TO DIRECTOR KAREN DUBIOS-WATSON ABOUT THE FACT HER WORKERS CAN'T COMPLY WITH COMMON SENSE OR THE CITY ORDINANCE THAT PROHIBITS THE THROWING OF SNOW BACK INTO THE STREET ???
MAYOR HARP PLEASE COMPEL YOUR DIRECTORS TO WORK TOGETHER LIKE YOU ARE ASKING THE PUBLIC TO DO.

This is what the street looks like at 9:30AM. Massive excess of road capacity which leads to speeding, combined with poor conditions for pedestrians and cyclists.
A buffered bike lane, which is a standard in NYC and Philadelphia now, would make the street safer for all road users by narrowing it and reducing speed.
This is a very popular bike route and with an actual lane, bike use would triple overnight (based on experiences of other cities that do this). This would free up more parking for local businesses to thrive and hire more staff.

More exemplary driving from city workers! This morning, 9:30 am, on Chapel, this car with a government license plate drove slooooowly up the left lane approaching Church. (I was directly behind.) Once the driver reached the intersection, the light turned red. Driver then decided s/he actually wanted to turn right, so veered diagonally into the right lane in front of all the cars that were waiting there. Passenger waved at them out her window. The car then proceeded to start making an illegal right turn on red, as pedestrians were crossing the street and traffic was moving along Church. Then the driver decided to stop partway, blocking both crosswalks. The photo attached was taken just as the light turned green (it took me some time to grab my camera), but shows the position this fine driver wound up in during the course of this red light.
I complain often about the crap driving and disregard for rules all over the city (with, we now know, deadly consequences for pedestrians). But why should citizens follow the rules when the representatives of the city so brazenly disregard them? Parks dept. trucks and even police cars drive around with zero regard for ordinary laws of safety and civility. We notice. Can the city maybe start doing something about this?

PMC and residents of 38 Crown Street: the amount of dog poop around your building is disgusting, especially in the bushes/hedges right alongside the building in the parking lot. People need to pick up their dog poop and if PMC can't get its residents to do so, it needs to clean up the poop itself. It's quite disgusting.

Keep the extra lane closed to car traffic. The lane has been closed for construction on the courthouse. There is little need to turn it back into a lane of traffic. Traffic patterns and drivers have adjusted to the closure. Four lanes of ink-directional traffic at an urban intersection is excessive. Curbed parallel parking spaces and a larger sidewalk at the corner of Elm and Church and Elm and Temple would calm traffic, help pedestrians, and make a more welcoming urban streetscape facing the Green.
