    I’d like to know who to contact regarding Chuckie Harris Park. When it was first opened, the gates were locked at night when the park was “closed” and there were lights on in the park. Now the gates are rarely locked and the lights are on intermittently. It would be safer to have the lights on at night.

    Hi! How do I petition for either a crosswalk or a stop sign on Parker Street, where it meets Hadley St? It’s in Charlestown, but the intersection is dangerous for pedestrians and I have to cross that street every day—there are cars parked on both sides of the street decreasing visibility, there’s no stop sign to slow the oncoming traffic down, and there’s no crosswalk to help make them aware that pedestrians are crossing (the sidewalk situation there is awkward, too)


    Thanks for all the good work you’re doing, and for keeping your constituents so well-informed!

    I live at 14 Crescent Street and we are overrun with rats. I recently had one in my basement. They are living across the street from my house in the cement wall and field. I am in constant fee now that they ventured onto my property.

    Hi Matt,

    I’d like to discuss this with you, maybe at the next Resistance meeting?

    I am concerned about the awful traffic and road conditions here, specifically around Sullivan Sq, rotary, Washington st, @ macgrath and lower Broadway with not 1 but 2 off-ramps from 93 within a 1/2 mile of each other. While a few construction projects ended, the traffic is still unhealthy and frustrating.


    I worry with Partners and the monstrous 2000 car parking lot about to open along with the already ridiculous amounts of traffic that already exists, that it will get worse. These cars are already using East Somerville as a cut through to Cambridge and Boston 5 days a week.

    The roads in and out of assembly sq., Medford/Washington st., Shrafts rotary were not designed to handle this kind of traffic. Add to this an “international” casino in Everett and it’s going to be a bigger problem. What is the city doing about this and what are our options?


    The areas under the high way are an eye-soar also. Is there anyway to get the state to address the areas like sidewalks, litter, potholes and fence “curtains” around the toxic salt mines they keep here? Isn’t there another place to keep salt chemicals?


    The area behind stop n shop is another example of an unsafe access to/from Assembly Row. Are there any plans to improve these areas and if so, when?


    I look forward to speaking with you at the next resistat meeting.

    Thanks Matt.

    Matt: Can you bring up the right on red sign at the Franklin/Broadway intersection. We found out that the sign was requested by a parent whose child attended the Old St Benedicts school. This family is not in the parish anymore and the traffic is constantly backing during the morning and evening rush hours since Franklin is a cut through for I-93. Removing his sign will help alleviate traffic fumes etc….MGL Chapter 90 says if you have a clear view left and right at the intersection there is no need for a ‘right on red sign’. Thanks Paul

    Hi Matt, this is in regards to the night light at the median strip in front of Kensington St on lower Broadway.

    The city workers came and worked on all three lights but the middle light went out again after a week or two.I would appreciate if you would contact the worker again and tell them we still have a problem there.

    Thank You Kindly,

    Joe Ferrazzani

    What’s being done about the island in front of Broadway brake. The trucks have ruined the vegetation by driving over it. While I’m at it why were the trash barrels on Broadway emptied on the holiday, that was a waste of money. Thanks for listening.
