Notified About

  • 54 Frank Street New Haven, CT - Hill
    Car painting and repairs. The smell of the paint is so extreme we have to close our windows. Car body work with electric tools, grinding and sanding. In addition to racing engines into the night and all weekend, along with loud music. This is going on 7 days a week. Please put a stop to this.
  • Kohary Drive New Haven, CT - Westville
    Kohary drive in westville and surrounding streets have not been plowed at all and no car can travel through them.
  • 149 Cleveland Road New Haven, Connecticut - Westville

    Very large/tall tree is completely dead with bark around bottom gone, only dead limbs, and woodpecker damage up top. The tree is in danger of hitting our house (and several neighbors houses), cars, and anyone on the sidewalk/street. We would like this tree removed before winds push it over an cause damage/injury/death.

    The tree is 60+ feet tall and over 120 inches in circumference. If it falls in almost any direction it will hit a house and decimate anything in its path. We consider this tree to be a significant danger to private/public safety and very likely to fall.

    Thank you.

  • Kohary Drive New Haven, Connecticut - Westville
    The plow trucks are speeding while plowing the streets. This creates a tidal wave of snow that covers over sidewalks that had been previously shoveled by residents. Please address this issue immediately.

  • Traffic/Road Safety Acknowledged
    Chapel And Forest New Haven Connecticut - Westville
    There was another crash over the weekend on this section of Forest Road between Chapel and Edgewood. This was the second one in the last 6 months. There needs to be a stop light placed at the intersection of Chapel and Forest to slow down the traffic before this blind bend. I see kids from Hopkins walking this stretch of Forest frequently, and I fear an accident involving one of them may happen if something isn't done.
  • West St And Adeline St New Haven, Connecticut - Hill
    An orange and white pickup truck has been abandoned in this corner for over two month. The police was called and they said that the truck is register. But the vehicle does not belong to anybody in the street. There are some straps under the truck. It looks like some one pulled the truck to that corner and leaved it there. Can someone check this vehicle again. All the oil was drain into the street and all the trash is getting stock under the truck.
  • 1 Porter St New Haven, CT 06519 - New Haven - Ward 03

    The two storm drains at the end of Porter street directly behind University Skilled Nursing Home are clogged with debris and sand, The storm runoff runs thru the nursing home property and floods the parking lot.

    Attached a picture from recent storm on 1-25-10 If you look in front of the parked cars you can see the river of water running across our parking lot. This floods our lot and then cascades over the curb and continues on into the apartment complex next to our facility.

  • 839-843 Connecticut 243 Woodbridge, CT 06525, USA - Woodbridge

    This is an awkward intersection, where Fountain Street (CT-243) meets Rimmon Rd. (CT-313). Park Lane is a small residential, dead-end road that is directly before the Rimmon Rd fork as you come up Fountain Street. It's a fairly sharp right turn, so you need to take the turn at a relatively slow speed.

    Unfortunately, you are at great risk of being rear-ended when you do this, because most drivers assume your right turn signal means you're turning onto Rimmon Rd, which is a gentle fork without a stop sign or signal, so you can negotiate that turn basically at full speed. I can't tell you how many near accidents I've seen here.

    I think the ideal solution is to build a rotary at this intersection, as it would not only solve this problem, it would improve turns between 243 and 313; another option is a dedicated turn lane on westbound 243 only for those cars turning onto Park Ln. At the very least, some signage warning of the sharp right turn onto Park Ln might help. In any case, the town and/or state should study the intersection and do something to help alleviate this terribly dangerous situation.

  • 130 Cleveland Road New Haven, Connecticut - Westville
    Roots from very tall tree on between sidewalk and street is driving up sidewalk panels to a problematic height, obstructing my driveway and likely to cause trip/fall to pedestrian sooner or later. i understand a tree in that location is city's responsibility.
