  • Intersection Of Howard Street / St.Paul St. / South Winooski Ave. Burlington, Vermont - Burlington
    This intersection is a route to school (Edmunds) for kids in the Five Sisters neighborhood and other South End neighborhoods. This is a complicated, 5-way intersection with no Walk /Don't Walk signals. Would like to see pedestrian improvements or a crossing guard assigned.

  • 145-163 College Street Burlington, Vermont - Burlington
    Why is a waffle vendor truck allowed to sit right on the grass and tree roots of City Hall Park behind the Irish pub and almost touching a tree?! This is a public park where we treasure our green space and don't want to see it damaged by a vehicle!

  • North Winooski Ave Burlington, Vermont - Burlington
    day after day, night after night, every day, bicyclist traveling the WRONG way down this one way state highway!.. last night at 11pm 2 cyclists, wrong way, dressed in black, no lighting, staring at their pocket devices (phones). sooner or later someone is going to get severely injured, let it be known this issue has been reported several times to the city. it is NOT the drivers fault, yet that is whom will have to pay and pick up the mess of an injured cyclist. Burlington's administration loves to test bike routes even failed ones, and it fails to uphold the laws on the books.

  • 603 Riverside Avenue Burlington, Vermont - Burlington
    The Riverside multi-use path essentially stops at the traffic light leaving the Community Health Center parking lot. When bicycling and trying to get from the Riverside multi-use path to North Winooski Ave heading downtown, you either have to use the walk signal or enter the road and take a left from Riverside onto North Winooski in the road, which can be quite difficult with intolerant car drivers not letting you over. It'd be helpful for the traffic light leaving CHC to be sensitive enough for bikes to earn the green light to leave the CHC lot and go straight across onto North Winooski Ave. Right now it doesn't trigger for just bikes and I've sat for multiple light cycles waiting for it.

  • 172-198 Lakeside Ave Burlington, Vermont - Burlington
    What a horrible intersection. Unfortunately I go through it nearly every day. As a pedestrian I dance to avoid being run down. As a cyclist and automobile I get the chance to park in the left lane. I also have the benefit, while pushed in the left lane, of seeing lots of dangerous maneuvers fun confused drivers pulling in and out of Feldman's Bagels. The greatest thing is this is all right under the nose of the public works building.

  • South Willard Street Burlington, Vermont - Burlington
    I think it's time solve the Willard Street bicycle problem. Sharrows, better signage, a dedicated bike lane; something needs to happen before someone gets hurt.

  • 62-64 Buell St Burlington, Vermont - Burlington
    Historic porch was removed and replaced with pressure treat straight stock. I don't think there was a proper zoning permit pulled for this. Sticks out and ruined the historic integrity of the building. There was also so obvious window replacement done with out permits also ruing any historic value this building had to the street. Could this issued be please be addressed.

    Heineberg Road Burlington, Vermont - Burlington
    Heineberg Rd--a main artery for kids traveling to school (CP Smith and Hunt) currently has all 4 main corners that are blocked off--how are we supposed to safely walk/bike to/from school?
    Why did this project start right when school was starting? How long until this is complete?
    VERY frustrating dealing with this every morning and afternoon while trying to get kids safely to and from school.

  • Bike Path/North Of Blodgett Property Burlington, VT - Burlington
    At least 5 long-term campsites are established on the no-camping beach just north of the Blodgett factory fence. There is garbage and smell from waste. This is not a legal campsite.

  • 112-114 North St Burlington, Vermont - Burlington
    Rent a Center no longer even uses dumpsters. They are building a mountain of trash and using their dumpsters as a privacy wall.

  • South End Burlington, Vermont - Burlington
    This intersection is pretty dangerous for bikes. There needs to be asphalt to help cycles get across the rails.
