109 E Summit St Ann Arbor, MichiganThere are quite a few dead branches which over hang the sidewalk. I believe they will come down with snow. I prefer the dead limbs removed not the entire tree. It really helps with light pollution in the front of the house. 734.692.2879. Thanks
208 Wildwood Ave. Ann Arbor, MichiganThere is a lovely Bradford Pear on the berm in front of my house which has lost two big limbs in the past. Those limbs were low on the trunk and split off at different times into the street. Now the tree is over-weighted and leaning towards my house. With this heavy snow it is really leaning towards my house and partially on my roof. I live in fear a big limb will crack off of this side and do significant damage to my home. I have asked your department to please prune it in the past but no one ever has. Clearly, it needs to be evened up so it is not so one side heavy. I love trees and do not want it to be removed but it does need attention. Thank you. Marlene Cooper
501-513 West Washington Street Ann Arbor, MichiganAfter rainfall or during snow melt, the sidewalks at this location always flood causing foot traffic to use the detour onto the street or the road verge. It would be great if something could be changed to prevent this area of the sidewalk from flooding.

I keep reporting every time they trash another street with the weekly advertiser, which Chuck Warpehoski tells me is now only allowed to be affixed to or placed between doors.
Last weekend they dumped bags of unsolicited newsprint on sidewalks, lawn extensions, and yards of:
Fair St. (west part)
This week they trashed
and probably many more streets.
Please fine them for each violation instead of just telling them not to do it again and waiting for more complaints. Someone on your staff said to complain to their distributor, which accomplishes nothing. They keep violating the city ordinance and getting away with it.
Chuck said I do not need to provide photos or a list of all the addresses.
He also seems to be rather annoyed that the city is not enforcing the law.
I reported our street a while ago and they are now sparing us.
I have never met anyone who wants the thing, and many people are really upset about having trash thrown on their property every week to dissolve in the rain, clog snowblowers, or tip off robbers if they are not there to discard the trash. I object to the major waste of paper (environmental destruction).
When I find them on sidewalks I kick them into the road for the city to deal with. Someone in the waste dept once calculated (in the 90s) that it cost the city $5000/year to get rid of them at current recycling rates.
I checked 'trash on lawn' because that seems to be where they are aiming it but much of it is on city property, and some on driveway aprons or driveways.
There is no trash on our lawn any more.
Dean And Baxter Roads Ann Arbor, Michigan
U-M is now proposing to build a transit center on Dean Road. With the anticipated increase in motorized transit, we should re-evaluate use of Dean and Baxter Roads by pedestrians and cyclists.
There is no sidewalk on either side of Dean Road or on Baxter between Dean and Green. I see pedestrians today walking down both roads; in the winter this is esp. difficult for them as they either must walk in the roadway itself or through the acccumulated snow. Regardless of what U-M ends up building here, pedestrians today need a sidewalk at least on one side of the road that is maintained in the winter
Dean and Baxter are the safest route today for cyclists going from south/central/north campus and the U-M buildings on the other side of 23 from Plymouth. Can you kindly evaluate the infrastructure needs for cyclists under anticipated traffic loads under U-M's plans so that you can plan now and avoid compromising cyclist safety in the future once U-M commences its building?

620 Revena Place Ann Arbor, MichiganHi, We live at 620 Revena Pl. The grass in the culdisac in between our houses is on city property and is 3 feet tall! Apparently, one of the families used to care for this parcel but sadly has moved away. Also, part of the section is grassless due to the city's piling on snow and salt in one part of the section. Can the city please do whatever is necessary to fix this? Thanks!

Thanks! Thanked!601-699 Arborview Boulevard Ann Arbor, MichiganThe water drain looks like it might have been hit by a plow truck. The opening seems to be much larger than others in the area.
It is located on Arborview right before Ross st., maybe 5 feet from Ross st., and it is on the south side of the street.
700 Watershed Drive Ann Arbor, MichiganThe very end of Watershed where it intersects Narrow Gauge is torn apart. The 30 foot x 50 foot area asphalt is ground up and flying up in our lawn. Snow plows continue to make it worse and larger. Please resurface area. Please inspect
