@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.
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.)

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.
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.
