Other Archived155/153 Lombard St New Haven, Connecticut - Chatham Square
The issues are blight and vermin. 155/153 Lombard St has absentee landlords who are allowing their property to deteriorate. Racoons and squirrels have been seen coming in and out of the house, where they have built nests, causing health and safety issues. The shingles are falling off the house making it not only unsightly, but attracting vermin to make nests.
These issues are reducing the value of my home and the properties of owner occupied single and multifamily homes as well as any absentee landlord who might be taking good care of their properties.
I work with Chatham Square Neighborhood Association, and am on the EDC of said organization. Several members of this organization and I have formed Fair Haven Forward. We are trying to make this neighborhood one where people will want to come visit, shop, live and work. But houses like this will keep good people away. Tenants and home buyers will look elsewhere. I know I wish I did! But I was told this problem was being resolved. Instead it has gotten worse.
