  • 43 Woodland Street New Haven, Connecticut - Dixwell
    Just when I had hoped LCI had convinced the owners of 45 Woodland to stop storing or dumping garbage against the wall of my house, last night at 3:30 AM the people who came to remove snow piled 3 feet of it against the wall. I have already spent about $1100 repairing that wall from the damage caused when garbage cans, trash, and snow, create moisture that damages the cement blocks. PLEASE get them to stop!

    Friends of Union Street Dog Park did a leaf cleanup last Sunday. We are late this year because of the early snow.

    The leaves are safely corralled up inside the park, so they can be easily accessed by opening the service gates.

    We may do another cleanup if there is a warmer day in January, because we didn't have enough volunteers to cleanup the sidewalks or the small park, so we will leave the corral up for a while.

    Thanks!

    The new owner at 45 Woodland Street continues to allow their trash, wet bags of leaves, and rotting construction debris to be thrown against MY house. The last owner did it because he said that it might bother his tenants if it was against THEIR house. The city has to give them a ticket and order them never to do this again.
  • 169 Winchester Street New Haven, Connecticut - Dixwell
    For years the landlord at 169 Winchester insisted in pushing all the trash and recycling from his 4 rental units up against the wall of MY house so it wouldn't smell for his own tenants. Now this selfish and inconsiderate person is gone, and the tenants have moved the containers away. But today the new owner allowed workmen to pile up rotting construction debris against MY house. Why not against his OWN property? What kind of ridiculous behavior is this? LCI please keep this from happening again!
  • 87-105 Sachem Street New Haven, Connecticut - Dixwell
    A stop sign is desperately needed on Sachem at Winchester. There used to be a sign there, but it was removed before construction of the Yale colleges began. A few injuries have been reported at this corner, and a number of people have complained about the need for a stop sign on SCF for several years, but this has been ignored. No one understands why such an easy fix is so hard.
  • 155 Prospect Street New Haven, Connecticut - Prospect Hill
    The pedestrian walk signals have not been working at Sachem and Prospect for several WEEKS! Pedestrians wait patiently, then finally cross the best they can with no "walk" sign. Please fix this NOW.
  • 87 Union Street New Haven, Connecticut - Wooster Square
    This area behind the fence near the south end of Union Street Dog Park has not been cleaned up since the bags with the body parts were found a few years ago near the railroad tracks. I hope it won't take another dismemberment to get this cleaned up! It is unhealthy, unsightly, and contradictory to what the city wants to do with making the Downtown Crossing a safe and healthy area.
  • 87 Union Street New Haven, Connecticut - Wooster Square
    Union Street Dog Park volunteers cleaned up the park and sidewalk today, but it doesn't look like the street is getting swept. We didn't have time to pick up all the trash and debris in the street. Could the city take a look at it? Thanks!
  • 87 Union Street New Haven, Connecticut - Wooster Square
    We would appreciate it if Parks or Public Works could pick up bagged leaves and yard waste that Friends of Union Street Dog Park cleaned up today with the help of park volunteers and students from Quinnipiac's Day of Service. Thanks to all who helped!
  • 520 Howard Avenue New Haven, Connecticut - Hill
    The city needs to have a system for plowing BOTH sides of residential streets. After the first odd-side parking ban, and plowing of the odd side of the street, the next step should be an EVEN side parking ban, and cleaning the EVEN side.
    Alternate side of the street snow removal is typical in cities, and has been the norm in all the northern cities and towns where I have lived.
    New Haven's odd approach means that after a big snowfall, if there is a second storm residents can't park on the even side of the street, because it is blocked with huge mounds of snow. If the city never removes the snow after each storm, things become more difficult with each storm.
    Why doesn't New Haven follow a logical system to guarantee clear streets during the winter?

  • 41 Mansfield Street New Haven, Connecticut - Dixwell
    Most of the cars parked for the hockey game did not have paid parking vouchers for the paid area, or Zone 7 permits for the Zone 7 resident area.
    This selective enforcement is completely unacceptable. Right now tickets are being issued in the downtown area, as they are every night until 9PM, but the city turns a blind eye when Yale events disrupt our neighborhood. Regulations are not applied fairly and equally across different neighborhoods, and this is one of those quality of life issues that lowers the civic standards of New Haven.
    No excuses. This issue has been brought up for years.

    Cars parked so close to corner at Mansfield and Sachem, beyond the no parking signs, that it's hard to make the turn onto Mansfield. One of the cars is only a few feet, in violation of the law, from the fire hydrant. None of the cars I looked at had parking vouchers for the paid area, or Zone 7 permits for the Zone 7 area.

    Today, Sunday, 12-18, it is warm and wet. Tomorrow, the melted water, piles of snow left on the sides of streets and at crosswalks, can be expected to be frozen to ice. The city should be using the day to clean up properly to the curb.
    I was just driving down Park Street, approaching Crown, when fire trucks came behind me. I couldn't get out of their way, because their were piles of snow to the side of the street in the parking strip. I couldn't move into the intersection, since I had a red light, and the traffic going east on Crown was steady. In the end, I slowly moved into the intersection, which was dangerous, to let the trucks pass. I would not have had to put myself at risk if the city had cleaned the streets to the curb properly.
    In a typical winter, more snow would come on top of the snow that is already there, and since many streets are not cleaned to the curb, the city would become an obstacle course.
    Why is the response to snow so inadequate in New Haven????

    Friends of Union Street Dog Park cleaned up the park today, raking tons of leaves from the park and sidewalk.

    It would be great if the leaves could be picked up this week, before they all blow away!

    Thanks!

  • 87 Union Street New Haven, Connecticut - Wooster Square
    Friends of Union Street Dog Park cleaned the entire sidewalk from Chapel Street to the end of the dog park of weeks of garbage and other debris. The city really needs to step up and do some cleaning itself. The rest of the sidewalk, and the gutter, needs to be cleaned from the end of the dog park to Fair Street.
