Welcome to a new weekly update that highlights some of the cases appearing on 311 in the North End/Waterfront neighborhoods. All 311 cases are public information and can be found at 311.boston.gov.
Leaf Blowing at Paul Revere Mall
“Workers are cleaning up the leaves on the pedestrian area of the Paul Revere Mall today. They continue to blow leaves and dirt into piles up against the brick walls that surround the mall. This action results in dirt and grime blown into into the windows and sides of homes that overlook the mall. They can easily blow the leaves for collection into the middle of the mall, which will avoid this issue. I have called 311 in the past about this and continue to be frustrated that there has been no resolution.”
The original 311 post can be found here. This case was submitted and opened on August 30th, 2017. It was then closed later that same day on August 30th, 2017 with the following message: “Closed with status: Case Noted. The Superintendent for the North End will be notified about this situation.”

Moving Day Trash
There were plenty of 311 reports around the September 1st move-in day. Here is one example.
“Move out furniture and garbage left probably during the night of 8/30 Wednesday as was there on a.m. of Thursday 8/31 at 6 a.m. And the pile grew during the day and is there there when I got home from work at 4:30 today. This is terrible, and I don’t care if it is the “worst day of the year” I just can’t believe it. And others moving out had their stuff piled in front of my door so I couldn’t even get in.”
The original 311 post can be found here. This case was submitted and opened on August 31st, 2017. It was then closed on September 2nd, 2017 with the following message: “Closed with status: Case Noted. no VIOLATION at this time.”
