  • 238 Lawrence Street New Haven, Connecticut - East Rock
    In Wednesday's WINTER STORM INFO/PARKING BAN NOTICE, it was noted that trash collection was "scheduled for Friday". Our usual pick-up is on Thursday. Since we had already dragged our bins out to the curb, when we read the notice, we dragged them back onto our property to prevent them being plowed under overnight. On Thursday night, we dragged them out to the end of our driveway, the only place they would be accessible to the refuse crew., expecting them to be emptied on Friday as the City's notice seemed to indicate. There was no pick up. Are we now supposed to wait until next Thursday??
  • Lawrence Street New Haven, Connecticut - East Rock
    Did the City REALLY have to wait until 6:45 pm on Wednesday to notify East Rockthat trash pick-up will be on its normal day?? I assume other neighborhoods got the same treatment. Perhaps notification of this fact CITYWIDE should have been provided last week BEFORE the holidays. It doesn't take much to be organized and accountable to the citizens whose hard-earned tax dollars pay your salaries!
  • 528 Orange Street New Haven, Connecticut - East Rock
    This bin at the corner of Orange and Pearl Streets is constantly overflowing. Perhaps public works should schedule more frequent emptying? It's a health hazard, will attract rodents and is unsightly.

    238 Lawrence Street New Haven, Connecticut - Annex
    Street light failing, cycling on (dimly) and off. Heavily traveled pedestrian route - very dark.
  • Whitney Avenue New Haven, Connecticut - East Rock
    Both the northbound and southbound sides of Whitney Avenue have not been properly plowed, leaving this normally four-lane main artery effectively as one lane in either direction. With the parking ban lifted, areas of the road where cars are parked are less than one lane. This is a hazard! Please address it immediately. If necessary, post signs for overnight snow removal.
  • Lawrence Street Between Livingston Street And Whitney Avenue New Haven, CT - East Rock
    There is a Residential Parking Zone on this block of Lawrence Street. The City has issued parking permits to employees of Planned Parenthood, without consulting residents of the block, to allow them to park on the street. These sometimes numerous cars parked on both sides of the street create safety hazards for motorists and pedestrians alike because they block sight lines and narrow the width of the street for drivers, making it difficult or impossible for two cars to pass. There have been many near accidents at the intersection of Lawrence Street and Whitney Avenue because of this decreased width and the blocked sight lines. This is exacerbated by an uptick in speeding traffic on Lawrence Street since the institution of traffic calming on Edwards Street and will be further exacerbated by the aftermath of a significant snowfall.
  • Lawrence Streer And Whitney Avenue New Haven, Connecticut - East Rock
    Due to plowing on the east side of Whitney Avenue, there is a snow bank spanning the crosswalk on Lawrence Street, making it dangerous for cars entering and leaving Lawrence Street at Whitney Avenue. Cars are getting stuck.
