  • 300 W. Clay St Richmond, Virginia - Jackson Ward

    Abner Clay Park, a city park with a playground, is located at Clay and Brook Rd, a complex interaction with a Four-Way stop sign. Blooming Child Petite Academy, a daycare facility, is located at 300 W. Clay St. Because of these two facilities, there are often small children near the street, crossing Brook Rd., and playing in the park. Twice last week, I was almost hit with my 20 month old son crossing Clay or Brook by cars driving above the speed limit or driving through one of the stop signs without coming to a complete stop. Please consider adding a "Children Playing" sign to alert drivers to the presence of the city park and daycare center.

  • 1 3, 5 East Leigh Street, Richmond, Virginia - Jackson Ward

    Several months ago the neighborhood representative contacted your office in regards to the storm drain on St. James and Leigh Street was clog and has been for a long time. Your workers came out about a month a go and stated to one of the residents that reside at 3 East Leigh and 5 East Leigh Street the clog will be fixed that day. Later that day after surveying the problem one of the workers stated to another resident that the clog could not be unclogged. How can a clog not be unclog?

    Something needs to be done about this because each time it rains the rain water drains very, very slowly in the storm drain because of the clog. There is a high level of standing water which interrupts the residents coming and going to and from their homes.

    The water is so high that the storm drain at the corner of the street and the far right side of Leigh Street are flooded. The residents have to be very careful coming out of their apartments because they will be drenched with the dirty water. One of the residents was leaving one morining going to work when a truck drove into this flooded area and the dirty, filthy water drenched her, the sidewalk, the building, the windows, the door, the porch, etc. (it seems that people driving trucks, jeeps and other big vehicles like running into this flooded area to see the water splatter up) she had to call her job to report that she would be late and had to clean herself up and change clothes. Again, something needs to be done about this. We residents have waited for so very long in this problem being corrected and your workers did nothing.

    We have to peek out of the door to see if a vehicle is coming down Leigh Street from the light at Adams Street and if they are in the far right lane. If they are we have to go back inside the building until the vehicle passes and the water runs back back in the street off the sidewalk.

    Also, your workers left the triangle Caution Signs at the curb of St. James and Leigh Street laying flat pilled up. I thought that they left them there to caution drivers and that they were coming back but I was informed that they are not.

    Whatever the City of Richmond, Virginia needs to do to correct this ongoing problem in this area we residents (tax payers) would greatly appreciate it.

    Thank You!!

  • 3 East Leigh Street Richmond, Virginia - Jackson Ward

    I have sent notice already but wanted to add that when and after it rains there is a foul sewage order that comes up in residents apartments. The odor is bad that I have to spray air freshner or burn incense to calm the odor down.

    Also, I do not drink the water any more because it may be contaminated. The water needs to be tested in this area to be sure that it is safe to drink. Who knows what is going on underground. Your Public Works employees did not want to fix the problem because there must be more damage than they anticipated.

    A letter will be going to the Mayor also.

    We residents on Leigh and St. James Streets thank you!!

    There are two potholes in our alley, one is at least 4' x 4' wide and 3" or more deep; and the other is at least 1.5' x 1.5' and 2" or more deep. We would like to request that the city have our alley either repaved to prevent further deterioration of our alleyway OR at the very least, that the potholes be completely repaved.
