@guest star: Why would you say that? SeeClickFix isn't the one who is supposed to plow the streets. SeeClickFix is only supposed to notify the city that the some folks want the street plowed. If the city didn't respond to the notification then get mad at the city. They are the ones that didn't work. And if you noticed the news during those months almost EVERYBODY on almost EVERY street in almost EVERY neighborhood complained about their streets not being plowed.

There is nothing wrong with getting mad and placing blame but get mad at and blame the right party. (The plowing did SUCK, though.)

The only people who are going to be able to stop the violence and crime happening in our communities are the people who are committing the acts of violence and crime in our communities. The rest of us have to convince them to stop. It's not going to happen unless we directly engage them... build relationships with them... understand what they want and push them to go after it.

I don't think we need more programs. I think we need to fund the ones that make real impact. More importantly I think we need to fund the PEOPLE who are on the ground making direct differences.

There have been numerous studies and plans for calming traffic on Rt. 10 from Kimberly Ave to Skiff St in Hamden. The only thing I've seen come from them are the 'rubber duckies' in the southbound turn lane onto Legion Ave. They've helped a bit but it is still very dangerous crossing there.

West River Memorial Park is virtually inaccessible for most residents. There is a crosswalk at North Frontage but you have to risk your life on Rt 34 to get to it. There is a crosswalk at Derby Ave. In neither crosswalk is there a welcoming entrance into the park. There's no gate. I believe you have to step over a small fence and tumble down a hill to get in. And should you make it to the crosswalks, to cross EBG into the park on foot you need to be quick and a bit suicidal.

We don't have much in our neighborhoods to keep our kids active and occupied. We can't afford to build community centers in every neighborhood and if we could get the facilities we can't afford the staff. We forget that we already have community centers. We have our parks. It's a shame we can't get to them.

The street never got plowed but I'm closing this because nature took care of it. At least residents can still depend on nature. ;)

The plows NEVER touched this street and it is still barely passable. The day of the original report there were no cars parked on the odd side of the street. Several of the surrounding streets were plowed but the truck never went down Irving.

I'm reopening this. I got the interference the last few nights (after 7p.m.) usually driving west on Chapel from downtown. It starts around Howe and continues to my driveway on Winthrop. Heard it last night. Not as strong but still there.

Actually it is like this all the way up to Whalley. We moved our cars to the even side during the ban but it looks like all that happened was the 5 foot high piles of snow were knocked down to 3 foot high piles of ice. You still can't get 2 cars down the street side-by-side in most spots.
@Doug: YES but maybe with a No Left from Southbound Church onto Center.
It is almost impossible to see how to turn onto Church during rush hour, especially this time of year. Buses at the stop, people crossing to the buses and cars always double parked in the right lane on Church St. increase the danger. Also to get from George St. to the parking lot on Center takes up to 10 minutes in the morning because you have to go 3 blocks (all the way to Chapel) to get to it.

I reported to the FCC and this is what I got back from them. I like how they felt it necessary to yell "SUBMITTED BY BROADCASTERS" at me.)

This has been happening for at least a couple years. Now it appears to be getting worse. I used to be able to get a clear signal in my house but the last few days it even comes in over my home stereo. I've gotten the interference as far south as Legion Ave, as far east as Church (on an overcast day) and as far north as Division. I never paid attention going west. It seems to be concentrated along the Whalley corridor.

Never noticed this post before nor would I have cared until I recently started parking on Center. I'm usually leaving at the evening rush hour and feel like I'm taking my life in my hands every time I try to turn right onto Church.

Flip it.

I guess there really isn't anything to be done about this since NHPD doesn't enforce traffic laws. People will be free to drive any way they darn well please until we change the culture in our city.

I am closing this even though it was never even acknowledged or any indication that 'authorities' even looked at it.

Thanks GregL. I'm aware of this. 2 things. First the city is spending money to have SCF be the front end to their work order system. I know traffic and parking monitors the site and is one of the few that uses it regularly.

My second reason for posting instead of calling is that I sent this from my mobile. I have unlimited data but I pay for phone minutes. I'm not going to pay to park AND pay for the time calling them to report the meter. Especially since I may never park at the meter again in the next year.

But I appreciate your response and willingness to offer help.

Went by there today and had no problem seeing the light. Looks like fresh cuts on the tree so I'm saying the issue is closed.
Which light? I mean which direction are you traveling? I cross that intersection every day also but don't recall having an issue seeing the light. Perhaps I'm going the wrong way.

Closed for now after NHPD sting a couple days ago.
I walk/ride/drive through there daily. Heck, I LIVE a few doors down from there and have NEVER been propositioned by a prostitute. (Maybe they know I don't have any money.) Still, I see them out there and am glad that the police are trying to put a stop to it. As residents we will do all that we can to help up to and including trying to get our fellow residents (who for some reason(s) have decided that the only way to survive is to sell their bodies) to the help they need.
