Michael McGlynn, Mayor
Winthrop B/W Boston Ave And The Mystic Medford, MA - MedfordThe same truck parks on the curb ,causing traffic to swerve around it, day in and day out. For some reason the truck is never ticketed. As a tax payer and recent home owner here it kills me to see that kind of stuff especially when it's a hinderence and hazard to so many daily drivers.
300-398 Park St Medford, MA 02155, USA - MedfordThis car with an HP placard is on the sidewalk for weeks at a time. This is a high pedestrian area with elementary students walking to school and a middle and high school bus dropping off many more. It is a safety issue and needs to be moved.
For years residents have pleaded the mayors office to address the overwhelming problems with traffic volume and commercial trucking on Harvard Street. To this day they have been unresponsive.
I'd like to report the mayor's office as the overriding ClickFix issue. Please repair this break in the city infrastructure or make room for someone who will.
302 Winthrop Street Medford, Massachusetts - Medfordevery road leading into the rotary is causing a problem. There are 2 cars entering the rotary from 3 different locations. The intersection is being blocked. It is a constant from 6:30 in the morning until 10:00 a.m. Something needs to be done.
198 High Street Medford, Massachusetts - Medfordthere needs to be a rotary symbol sign on the island facing south down Winthrop. At night especially it is not easy for strangers to realize it is a rotary. It needs sign like the one on Main Street rotary in Winchester. Last night I was behind an out of state auto that made a left from Winthrop to High westbound without going around the rotary.
468-470 Massachusetts 60 Medford, MA 02155, USA - MedfordHi, this is a nice feature. Just wondering if Medford could install leading left green arrows at the intersection of Rte 60 and the Fellsway. This intersection is very dangerous, and I think green arrows for the traffic flowing on Rte 60 would be very helpful in reducing accidents and rush hour(s) traffic. Thanks so much.

The presence of dogs and their owners is one of the few things keeping this park safer than it otherwise would be (especially at night).
Here are some positive things that I've witnessed:
-Dog owners are the closest thing we have to a neighborhood watch, especially now that it's getting darker earlier and the lighting in the park is VERY inadequate at night.
-Dog owners keep the drug dealers from completely taking over the area.
-Dog owners are the only ones who get together to clean the park of the dangerous broken glass, grocery carts, and other litter that is left behind.
-I have never witnessed the small dogs that make the majority ever threaten small children and have only ever seen kids playing with the small dogs.
Instead of focusing on removing a positive influence to Morrison Park, how about focusing on what is really wrong with area?
-Last year there was a stabbing in Morrison Park.
-Recently I saw a group of girls viciously beat another in plain daylight.
-I have witnessed drug deals in the fenced-in play area. I've seen and smelled kids smoking marijuana there as well.
-I've also seen the same activities occur behind the dugout of the baseball diamond.
I believe that these persons are more of threat to children than small dogs.
Oddly enough, it seems that these activities disburse when dogs and dog owners are nearby.
I think the proper balance would be to add a gated-in area strictly for dogs to safely run off-leash. This way, people who are threatened by dogs would feel less threatened, and we would maintain the positive influence of dog owners in the area.
Main St & Route 16 Intersection Medford, MA - MedfordTrying to come off South St or Route 16 onto Main St is like trying to perform a suicide mission each time! You have to peel out and burn rubber at full speed then slam on your brakes in the center like a sitting duck and then peel out again to get across the other half of street all while oncoming traffic is speeding towards you and purposely go faster if they see you even attempting to get across the street!! Try doing this while driving over all the potholes and getting stuck and ricocheted like a pinball all over the place. I'm SHOCKED this intersection has not been improved!!
