Description

Back in April 2012, a citizen wrote to Gripe Vine regarding the lack of sidewalks "on either side of Ocean Avenue from Robert Street to Harding Street and it is very dangerous for adults and children walking". The response was that "we're in limbo at this point. If you don't see any activity on this site within a month, let me know and I will start from square one." That was over a year and a half ago, and there has been dead silence and no change. People with baby carriages, those who are in wheelchairs or otherwise require assistance walking, and anyone else who just wants to walk is forced to negotiate lumpy dirt/snow, walk through someone's yard, or walk on Ocean Avenue, where they will probably be hit by a speeding car. Why is it so hard for the City of West Haven to put in what amounts to approximately 100 feet of sidewalk? This complaint has been issued by many people over decades, yet nothing has been done.
