22 Westfield Avenue Ansonia, Connecticut
As I entered Route 8 at the new entrance ramp near Griffin today I saw the hazard so many have been talking about. The horribly designed "traffic circle" placed dangerously in front of the entrance ramp!
I noticed dirt on the road so we slowed down and I was able to get these pictures. Not only are tire tracks I saw weeks ago on the right side still there, now trash has been thrown out and someone hit this thing at high speed (over the weekend) kicking up the dirt on the road and doing quite a bit of damage to the landscaped area.
Derby clearly is not maintaining this or they would have already removed the weeks old tracks, forget the trash and now more damage. You have to slow to a crawl to not slam into that round about... I can imagine the danger at night.
What if this new vehicle that clearly hit with some speed flipped? What if it's passengers were injured or worse?
I assume Derby is ready to settle every time they get sued for creating a road hazzard? Really?
Rockwood Ave Ansonia, CTThe greenhouse at the corner of Rockwood & N Prospect St has a tree growing out of one of the buildings which is falling over, unused broken greenhouses, not to mention all the overgrown shrubs and garbage. This business needs to clean up their yard and tear down danagous buildings and glass houses no longer in use. It is a disgust that us neaighbors have to look at this but be embarrassed by its dismay. I cannot believe the town has not ordered them to clean up or fine them a heavy fine and let the town clean it up.
525 E Main St Ansonia, CTIt appears someone had beat me to this issue already as it continues to generate fairly accurate opinion through many WEB and other media outlets. Good question, will it be in the age or generation of the valley baby-boomers to see a visual change to the buildings on upper East Main and lower North Main Streets? Example, the next half of decade? By the largest media account this "YouTube" link below has also awakened me like 3,184 others through comment stating the town of Ansonia is either a fire trap or some kind of pit. It is YouTube number 1 by categorically doing a simple-search “Ansonia, CT” in the search bar. What a grand entrance to the town & label to the internet’s hottest site seen here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zfdsYTHaT9o
Did a superintendent miss something on clean-up day?

123 Main Street Ansonia, Connecticut
Having been in Ansonia for about 3 years now I shake my head every time there is a holiday on a Monday and await the stream of stupidity to start flowing.
Ansonia's residential trash pickup is on Wednesday each week UNLESS a holiday falls on Monday. If that happens, trash pickup is ALWAYS moved a day later, to Thursday.
However, time and time again, trash piles up on these "holiday weeks" a day early. In the summer it sits out a day and stinks.
Has the city actually ever notified residents to NOT put their trash our on Wednesday when Monday is a holiday? Clearly, the residents don't seem to notice their trash is on the curb for two days nor care how that looks.
Marshall Lane & Bartholomew Ave Ansonia, ConnecticutThe house on the corner of Marshall Lane & Bartholomew Ave is a junk yard. Kids toys, trampoline, holiday decorations, you name it and it's in the FRONT yard. The house also has at least 6 cars/truck/vans parked on the grass all the time. This is NOT the image of a Hilltop resident we want. Can someone please make them clean up their act???????
10 Jason Wright Dr Ansonia, ConnecticutRental home that owner does not take care of. Lawn is uncut weeds. Driveway with garbage. Cardboard in window. Makes area look terrible. Landlords need to take care of their homes
Beaver Street Ansonia, CTWoke up to the 6 am roar of the trash truck and the sounds of crashing trash bins. As I leave for work I notice among the sea of trash cans in the street, my cans are still full. And this isn't the first time. Just called and chewed out the dispatcher, anyone know who contact about this
Hubbell Ave Ansonia, ConnecticutHow do we get a larger police presence in this area? The drug deals are blatant and out in the open, rarely even bother hoping into a car for a ride around the block any more. The tenants are loud all through the night. They sit in cars thumping music at all hours...for hours. The garbage cascades onto the sidewalk and the wind blows it around the neighborhood. Stepping over diapers to enter your house is pretty awful. Children are rude, disrespectful, everywhere and unsupervised. What can concerned tax payers do?
Ansonia Riverwalk Ansonia, Connecticut
This weekend I took a friend down to the Greenway / Riverwalk off Division Street. Honestly, because it's longer I often will walk the Derby/Shelton side but we decided to start on the Ansonia side to see how far it goes (not nearly far enough..)
That said, we were stunned that the Ansonia side of the greenway is covered with dog poop. It's scattered all over one end to the other. We had to keep walking around it. We assumed this was an issue the greenway was having universally. WRONG!
We then crossed Division to walk the Derby/Shelton end. SPOTLESS! There wasn't even a piece of trash on the Derby or Shelton portions of the greenway. Ansonia, trash and dog droppings!
I know it's the owner's responsibility to clean this up, but clearly it is not happening at all. How Ansonia offices have not noticed it's greenway is filthy and Derby's is spotless escapes me but my hope is this message will get perhaps Public Works to add cleaning up the greenway to it's list of projects regularly. No, it shouldn't have to... but we can't let "our" side of the greenway look like this. No wonder so few people were on it and Derby's was packed!
