Crosswalk Near Mercantile Building Needs A Ramp

“No ramp at this crosswalk. This design forces wheelchairs and strollers into traffic to go down the ramp on the other side, then go back around to pick up the sidewalk. This is very dangerous. This is the intersection of Richmond Street and Commercial Street at the Mercantile wharf building. Please make this intersection handicap and stroller accessible.”

A 311 user suggests that a ramp is needed at this crosswalk.

Overflowing Trash Can at Charter Street Park

“This was what the trash barrel looked like yesterday. Although it was cleaned up sometime today, the bigger issue needs to be addressed. With the Prado closed, there are no trash receptacles for tourists to dispose of their trash in as they are rerouted up charter Street to unity Street to get to the old North Church. Please place at least two more trash cans at the entrance to the church or playground so this won’t happen once foliage season begins.”

Trash can clearly overflowing at Charter Park.

The original 311 post can be found here. The case was submitted and opened on September 10th, 2018. The case was resolved later that day on September 10th, 2018 with the following message: “Closed with status: Case Resolved. Reallocated to parks and recreation.”
