  • Anns Farm Rd & Knob Hill Dr Hamden, CT, 06518, USA - Hamden
    Street sign at corner of Knob Hill and Anns Farm was apparently knocked down overnight and is lying in grass on Anns Farm. I heard noises between about 8:30 and 10 that sounded like tractor trailer trucks or vehicles that were stuck somewhere and trying to get out and apparently this is the result.
  • 103 Robertson Dr Hamden, CT, 06518, USA - Hamden
    Apparently the students' town provided garbage bin is full - so this morning I noticed 9 plastic bags of garbage on the curb (I live next door) some of which already have holes in them. Garbage collection in this neighborhood is not until Friday (today is Thursday and this was at about 7AM this morning) and as our properties back up to the woods and the Farmington Canal, I expect to wake up tomorrow and see the remnants of the feast the animals will be enjoying overnight. I have emailed both the property owner and the university with no response. I advised the owner that he needs to reach out to the town to get another receptacle and until he does that the garbage will have to be stored in their garage (which they don't use) or taken to the dump. This is a health hazard, particularly if the animals get into them overnight. And garbage should not be put out until the evening before one's pick up, not two days prior.
  • Robertson Drive Cul De Sac Hamden, Connecticut - Hamden
    Three cars are parked in cul-de-sac on Robertson Drive snowplows cannot get in to thoroughly plow in street and my own driveway plow person cannot get down my driveway because these cars are blocking the access for the plows. Not sure if they are student cars or resident cars but I do not recognize the cars as being resident's cars and I have Quinnipiac student living on each side of the cul de sac. These are all cars with Connecticut license plates as follows: Dark color Toyota Prius plate number 8ARXD5, white Volkswagen Jetta plate number AL76140, and a dark colored Nissan Sentra plate number AF95322.

  • Anns Farm Road Hamden, Connecticut - Hamden
    Can some parking enforcement be done on the section of Anns Farm Road between Evergreen and Dest? There are several houses there with Quinnipiac students and they park on both sides of the street and only one car can get by at a time. Those homes all have driveways with ample room for vehicles in them that they do not seem to use, and if there is a parking ban in effect these cars, at least on the odd side of the street, should be ticketed or towed.
  • 501 Farmington Avenue Hartford - Bristol
    This is a Kentucky Fried Chicken location and the sidewalks in front of their building have not been shoveled all winter. They are treacherous and ice covered. There is a CT Transit bus stop in front of their building also and there has been no path shoveled from the stop to the street so people can board/disembark to/from the bus. Those of us waiting for the bus are forced to either chance our safety by climbing a snowbank and trying to get a foothold in it, hoping we do not fall under the bus, or wait in the street to board and flag the bus down. It is a very unsafe situation and KFC does not seem to care at all. Will it take a serious fall and possible lawsuit to get them to comply with the City of Hartford sidewalk clearning ordinances?
