This is not a localized issue, as we all know trash on our streets is a huge problem all over the city. I have a couple of simple solutions that would dramatically help our issue and make me proud to bring friends and relatives to our city:
Install more trash cans! How can we help without anyplace to put the trash on the street! Many neighborhoods have none at all.
Hold property owners accountable, which would eventually get passed down to their tenants. Sadly it seems we have repeat offenders that do not do their part in helping to keep our streets clean. Start imposing fines! Many people do not have pride in our city, this should get them motivated.
Lastly, it's a known fact that the parking enforcement leads the street sweepers, why not take the funds that are collected from those tickets and employ a small group that would follow the sweeper and pick up trash on the sidewalks (both sides!). In such a densely populated city using the street sweeper once every other week isn't cutting it.

Boston has a great idea by making some streets one way because of the snow. Can we do that here too? We constantly have cars coming over the hill in both directions with no where to pull over. Today we had a fire engine coming up from Crescent and a plow coming from Eastern on to meet in front of my house. The plow had to back all the way back down to Eastern Ave. This is not safe at all. All the surrounding streets are in the same situation.

I am at my wit's end after stepping in these disgusting piles not once, but TWICE today, on both sides of the street! It's very obvious that somebody feels they're above cleaning after their dog. Can we issue a citizen's arrest if we see someone leaving these unsanitary land mines behind without picking them up? It's obvious they're all from the same dog, and they are literally ALL. OVER. THE SIDEWALKS.

This park is out of control!! Empty bottles of alcohol everywhere. Bags filled with nips and trash tied to almost every bench. There have been numerous times that I have gone over there to walk my dogs during the early evening and there have been people passed out drunk on the grass. It blows my mind that this park sits directly in front of the Chelsea Police Department and that they don't take notice of this behavior. There has even been used needles on the ground and condoms as well. It's sad to see this park turn into such a ghetto environment. DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT!!

Today I had special visitors to my house. One of the visitors mentioned on how dirty my neighborhood was and questioned if the city did anything to beautify around here.
So, as soon as my guests left I went out and clean the sidewalks and the streets myself. I had a large janitors broom, my snow shovel and my rolling trash barrel.
I blame (in large part) the liquor store (Fernandez bros), Dunkin donuts and the city (for lack of trash containers around the city.
After an hour and a half, my block is fully cleaned just waiting for it to be trashed once again.

Let me make it clear that I realize that the amount of consecutive snows storms overwhelmed us all including the towns and city's surrounding Boston. We appreciate all the hard work by the dpw but Eastern ave has been a mess since day one. I've been a Chelsea resident for over 40 yrs and have never seen such an awful job at plowing a Main Street and truck route. Why make a street a snow emergency and then proceed to plow 6 ft off of the curb? I've noticed every town in the surrounding area cleaning up the snow piles on main streets such as Broadway, Revere and other major streets in other city's. I've noticed that some snow removal was indeed performed on Broadway but we the residents of Eastern ave have seen no such clean up on our street. Most of us don't have driveways and parking on the street is our only option. The issue here is that cars are in the middle of the street causing some cars to be side swiped, huge traffic jams, and people having to walk in the middle of traffic which includes big heavy trucks just to enter their vehicle. As a fellow long time tax payer I hope that this issue can be resolved before any further action is taken.
Also one more thing, please take a look of Broadway in front of the Chelsea creek. People walking in the middle of the street just to get to and from Revere. The issue here is that the plow drivers decides that 10 ft off of the curb was a justifiable distance for a Main Street. I assume that someone being hit by a car could bring a suit against the city.
Thank you for your attention,

They didn't take out the trash that came by on Wednesday (yesterday). It's always look like this when you come up the stairs to approach the houses. They take the trash out like once or twice a month. It's causing a lot of flies and rats in the area, and a lot of children from that house play outside too.

I think it's silly that I have reported this awful graffiti to the town via various methods for over a year now but still, the graffiti remains. It is not just a little, but the entire building. Does Chelsea not have any pride in ALL its neighborhoods in the city? I am at a loss. Obviously the fines you are so-called levying against the owner of the business is not working. This needs to be escalated to someone other than inspection services. Send Mr. Ash down here to see. I am sure if he or other town board members lived in my neighborhood, this would have been taken care of when it was first reported.

Multiple days now that this trash has been left on the sidewalk. All trash comes from Fernandez liqueur store and their delivery people. Their customers have been smashing their glass bottles in front of our homes and this is very unacceptable!

The Dunkin Donuts Parking lot that is located across the Court House (on Williams st & cherry st) is full of trash and never gets cleaned up.
This whole area (court house, 2 small parks by the court house, broadway ) is always filled with trash and zoning board should have these local stores & restaurants should be more accountable for cleaning their store fronts as well as having DPW do multiple runs not just once a day.
Beacon Street Chelsea, MA - Chelsea
Every day, evening, and most importantly, night (dusk-1AM)during these beautiful times of the year it is impossible for residents on Beacon Street and surrounding areas to leave windows open without having the intrusive bus commute noises to deal with. Specifically, at the Beacon Street stop the buses are constantly revving their engines from the Beacon Street off-ramp to rush to a complete stop at Beacon Street stop. Then they again will almost always intensely rev the engine to rush to yet another complete stop at the stop sign at the corner of Beacon and Broadway, which is no longer than 30-40 YARDS AWAY! I have read this complaint before and the response points to writing down the bus #'s that excessively speed/stop noisily, but that will not solve the core issue here.
I would suggest possibly moving the bus stop to a somewhat non-residential type of location right around the corner possibly by the Chelsea Trial Courthouse and 7-Eleven. At least then the stop and go type of noise would be occuring primarily in more of a commercial setting with the same functionality and accessibility that is currently available.
Please take the time to come up with a well-thought out response and not something unresolving and irrelevant to the situation. Thank you in advance!
