301 Fatetteville Street Raleigh, North Carolina
Saturday morning after 9:30 AM on Oct. 18th walking on Fayetteville Street it was sad to encounter over ten spots--between Davie Street and Morgan Street that featured one or more of the following: vomit, broken beer bottles, and empty unbroken beer bottles.
The Street Cleaners in the red shirts were doing a fine job getting it all tidied up for another day in Raleigh--these folks are to be commended for cleaning up the disgusting leavings generated by nightlife that needs to be more carefully regulated by the Raleigh City Council, the Downtown Raleigh Alliance, and the Raleigh Police.
The problem is not the people cleaning the streets. The problem are city leaders who put up with allowing Fayetteville Street to become such a cesspool of side effects.
The mess being cleaned up are the side effects of too many clubs in too small an area over-serving people to the point where vomit and broken bottles are rather common in the morning...as is the crazy amount of noise late at night which many of us do not even bother reporting any longer due to ineffective responses.
Cleaning up the mess is appreciated
--we salute you red shirted street cleaners.
We don't appreciate public officials who let the root causes which produce this mess continue.
Raleigh--let's grow up and get our laws enforced. Let's not wake up in a few years with an unattractive downtown just because city leaders allowed way to many bars and clubs and then refused to enforce the law.

The City of Raleigh has decided NOT to dedicate sufficient resources to follow SeeClickFix and "cannot at this time make any predictions as to when the backlog will be cleared."
I would suggest posting here and then emailing a link to your SCF post to:
It's a shame good government has taken a back seat to pandering.

I got an email from a city employee that said:
During last Tuesday’s City Council meeting, the council requested a report on the status of the SeeClickFix web application. Staff is in the process of preparing that response to the City Council.
So, if you like SCF, now would be the time to let them know at:

The bar/pub trolly going down Fayetteville street on Sat night was playing music so load it could be heard from half a block away. This is in clear violation of Sec 12-5007 of Raleigh's Noise ordinance. This city needs to learn how to enforce it's street dining and noise ordinances.

Wondering if a person could monitor the traffic back-up situation that happens between Person and Blount lights on MLK during morning and afternoon rushes?
Seems that the Blount light backs traffic into the intersections of MLK/Person, sometimes all the way back to MLK/Garner Rd in the morning or Blount light backs traffic into the intersection of MLK/Wilmington in the afternoon. At first I thought wrecks were happening, but see that bad light timing is creating the activity. Seems like the in bound and out bound of the city traffic on the cross streets is getting a longer light, even if they are not very backed-up.
I think this is creating very bad situations, with people being left in intersections during light changes or harder to get out of the MLK/Blount St. Red light camera, because you are stuck in the intersection or traffic is not progressing to get through the intersection in a timely manner...this then makes people stop short on a yellow lights to avoid getting a ticket and can cause rear collisions.

The left turn lane on s. Wilmington to turn on MLK is only allowing a few cars through and is not cycling as it used to. The past 2 weeks, it takes anywhere from 2-4 cycles to get through the light. 7:30am-8:30am
