  • Traffic/Road Safety Acknowledged
    468–498 James St New Haven 06513, United States - Mill River
    There is no pedestrian crosswalk here at the offramp and there is no safe way to walk from James to State Street. This becomes a problem as the district has now opened.
  • Ferry Street New Haven, Connecticut - Chatham Square
    Why is nothing being done to help the good citizens of Fair Haven... there are still good people that reside here, help us take this off our streets. I watched parents have to walk their children to summer school, they have to walk by this. It is unfair to our children to have to see this. Now that schools starting this is what they see while they are waiting for their buses or walking to school. Come on Mayor please do something to help us. Get rid of these prostitutes that are roaming our streets morning, noon and night. Move these meth clinics. Drive through and see what we are up against😢
  • Parks Request Acknowledged
    470 James St New Haven 06513, United States - Mill River
    Someone blocked off access to the Mill River Trail with a nut and bolt. Why was this done? Can it be open? We put a lot of effort into making this trail with approval from the state and city this summer
  • 19 Clinton Avenue New Haven, Connecticut - Chatham Square
    Recently I've noticed the lights​ in strong school have been turned on and with the recent broken glass door in the playground, I believe someone or multiple people may be occupying the school. This is not a good image for the neighborhood and it's definitely not a safe place to walk through or let your children play anymore. please clean up strong school.
  • 470 James St New Haven, CT, 06513, USA - District
    There is a serious problem with oversized 18-wheel tractor trailers turning onto James Street only to find out they can't fit under the railroad overpass. I work at 470 James Street and have a window seat. At least 4 times a week, a truck pulls in, and then has to try to back out while impatient drivers keep trying to pass the truck. There should be a sign right at intersections of State Street, James Street and the I-91 exit ramp notifying truckers of the low bridge, or better yet, some kind of overheight warning signal.
  • Ferry St New Haven, Connecticut - Chatham Square
    The prostitution, drug sales & use of drugs has become highly visible along Ferry St. Especially Chapel St intersection through
    Peck St. Toni Harp and the narcotics unit need to start riding by so you can see what's going on our streets so you can take action before we make national news again. The prostitutes and John's are coming in from the out skirts; we need to start exposing them, by arresting them and impounding their cars and posting the mug shots; maybe then they will think twice before coming to New Haven to do your dirt
  • 545 East Street New Haven, Connecticut - Mill River
    This access gate to I-91 has been unlocked for a long time, but now it is left wide open for anyone to walk up to the highway.
  • 1 Front Street New Haven, Connecticut - Fair Haven
    The lights in Quinnipiac River Park are not working and need to be fixed. They have not worked for years and need to be connected to the lights that are presently working in the park.
  • Clinton Avenue New Haven, Connecticut - Chatham Square
    we'll call it the first official day of the dirtbike season. All evening up and down clinton/front/state street. If it continues looks to be a long summer.
  • Front Street New Haven, Connecticut - Chatham Square
    All over Fair Haven today, pulling wheelies, against and around traffic. The usual idiocy.
  • 69 Grand Ave New Haven, CT 06513, USA - Chatham Square
    leaking hydrant
  • Criscuolo Park New Haven, Connecticut - Fair Haven

    This shouldn't be a surprise to anyone at this point. I've commented before that at some point one of these dirt bikes or motorcycles is going to jump the curb and hit an innocent resident, or pop a wheely and and end up going through the windshield of an oncoming car. We're fortunate that the child wasn't hurt more seriously.

    The dirt bikes ride with impunity. The no-chase policy is a joke. This will probably cost the city big-time. If I were the parents I would sue the city. The city knew, or should have known, that allowing dirt bikes to ride in city parks is a real risk to residents and by not chasing and not enforcing the law the city has de facto encouraged this behavior.

    The other joke here is that the police are asking for the public's help; the public has been asking for the police's help for more than 5 years and for more than 5 years the police and mayor's office have given this issue nothing but lip-service. To be sure there have been a few high-profile arrests, but by and large the phone calls to the non-emergency number are not answered and the posts on SCF go unacknowledged. Very sad.
