  • 77 First St New Haven, Connecticut 06519 - City Point
    White Chevrolet van has NO PLATES and has been parked on First St, between Greenwich & Howard Aves for over a year. Should have been registered in CT many, many months ago. Owner is not paying New Haven car tax that’s due. Needs to be ticketed and booted. “Listen, I know you hate waiting at the DMV to register vehicles. Now you don’t have to! Just park your unregistered vehicle at The First Street Illegal Car Zone™ where no one will ever notice that your car doesn’t even have plates!”

  • Greenwich Ave New Haven, CT, 06519, USA - City Point
    Since 10 am all the way till midnight you see all these teenagers hanging around anyone’s front porch. Being reckless, destroying public signs, personal signs, running up on the stairs, throwing rocks, riding bikes on the middle of the street not letting cars pass by in purpose, or throwing themselves on the street daring cars to hit them. I’ve caught a few of them snooping on my backyard and they also set fire to my neighbors back yard not to long ago. Why aren’t the police doing anything? What are they afraid of? There’s only so much We can say or do, if We say something their parents group up a few people and that’s when they want to be parents. That’s when the problem starts and that’s what many of us are trying to avoid. NHPD there are good people on this street. People that actually have to wake up to work. Any help before it gets out of hand? It’s getting tiring and this might be a last call for help before something happens on this streets.
  • 83 1st St New Haven, CT, 06519, USA - City Point
    This is approximately the 9th illegally-registered, out-of-state vehicle that has been parked on First St by a single owner, who lives at 80 First St, 1st floor apt. All of his vehicles are parked on the single block of First St, between Greenwich Ave & Howard Ave. He has boasted publicly (via social media) that he collects cars as a hobby and is using First St as his personal parking lot for his car collection! Four of his vehicles are registered in Vermont, the rest have ‘temporary’ Texas marker plates. As soon as these ‘temporary’ plates expire, they are replaced with new ‘temporary’ Texas plates. To me this suggests some fraudulent, criminal activity. Am I missing something here??
    I have contacted: Police; Dept of Transportation, Traffic & Parking; Tax Collector; Tax Assessor. Despite the fact that he is cheating the city out of hundreds of dollars in tax revenue—and therefore essentially stealing all of the services which YOU taxpayers enjoy, such as on-street parking, trash pickup, street sweeping, snow plowing, public schools, fire & police protection—AND despite the fact that those ‘temporary’ Texas plates are continually being replaced 'might' suggest that something more nefarious is going on—I nevertheless am told that there is “absolutely nothing” your city can do about it—except issue a parking ticket for any of his cars that don’t move after 72 hours. (To avoid this, the owner simply moves his cars from one side of the street to the other.)
    Dept. of Transportation, Traffic & Parking suggested I apply for a zoned “Residential Parking District”. So essentially I am being told that I myself must ‘jump through hoops’ to fix this problem, because Your and My Employees—i.e. city staff who are being paid via Your and My Taxes—simply can’t be bothered to fix this themselves.
    If Mayor-elect Elicker uses NextDoor, I’d urge him to explain on the NextDoor site how he plans to address this problem of: 1. illegal car registrations, 2. the resultant revenue loss, 3. the dead wood among city staff who apparently think it requires “too much effort” to fix this. NOTE that if this much tax cheating is taking place on just ONE block of your city, imagine how many $$Thousands in tax revenue is being lost overall, because city staffers refuse to deal effectively with blatant illegal registrations.
    Apparently it’s much easier to raise YOUR taxes than to address such massive revenue leaks. And if even a new mayor won’t fix this, then get ready to hold onto your wallets—because more tax hikes are inevitable.
  • Sea Street New Haven, Connecticut - Hill
    Drivers are routinely making illegal left turns traveling northwest on Sea St on to Ella Grasso Blvd. Not only does this hold up traffic through the intersection, a driver behind a left-turning vehicle has to stop suddenly when the car in front stops unexpectedly. I have watched several close calls coming from the other direction, and had my own close calls when drivers don't signal their intentions and just stop to wait to make the turn. There needs to be much more enforcement in this dangerous intersection.
  • College Street And Congress Avenue New Haven, Connecticut - New Haven - Ward 03
    There is no in-road pedestrian sign at this busy mid-block crosswalk. This crosswalk is very long and pedestrians have quite a distance to cross. I have not seen the in-road pedestrian signs at other busy mid-block crosswalks elsewhere downtown. For the safety of everyone who uses these mid-block crossing, these should be replaced as soon as possible.
    Thanks very much.
  • 126 Minor St New Haven, CT, 06519, USA - New Haven - Ward 03
    Its bad enough yale workers park in residential neighborhoods and take up all the parking space....now they are parking in handicap spots in front of homes and leaving their cars their all day while they are at work....the person that is taking this space Mon-fri is taking the space of a woman who can barely walk and needs that space in front of her home. Unfortunately parking authority can not do anything about it which i find ridiculous.....
  • 70 1st St New Haven, CT, 06519, USA - City Point
    White Chevy van has expired temporary plate 40725D4, expired Aug 20, 2019. Please ticket. NOTE that this is an ongoing problem on this block: multiple illegally-registered-out-of-state vehicles. All belong to 1st floor tenant of 80 First St. WHY can't this be taken care of? This has been going on for YEARS!! On This one block of First St! If the city really doesn't need tax revenue, is there a way for the rest of us to opt out of paying taxes? Please explain how one does so and I'll share this opt-out-of-taxes information will all my neighbors!

  • Potholes Archived
    9 Tower Lane New Haven, Connecticut - Hill
    I am a monthly user of this non-paved outdoor lot and there are numerous large potholes at the entrance and throughout the lot that present a hazard to vehicles. In past year these potholes were filled with gravel, but they have not been filled them this year.
