  • 12 Woodland St West Haven, CT 06516 - West Haven
    I drive passed this house almost every day on my way to work. On any given day, there are anywhere from 6-10 junk cars in the driveway, yard, and in the street. Some of them are sinking into the ground, others just falling apart. I would guess that only 2-3 of them are actually registered (if that, looking at the # of them without license plates). I can only imagine how this is affecting the value of the houses in this neighborhood and is just an eye sore in general. Aren't there zoning laws to prevent this from happening? Can someone please do something about this? Many West Haven residents are trying to keep West Haven clean, meanwhile there are travesties like this house going unnoticed.
  • 86 Sawmill Rd West Haven, CT 06516 - West Haven
    The Graffiti on the railroad trestle on sawmill rd near railroad ave has been there for a few years and it is an eyesore. I have to look at it everyday coming home from work. It should be removed.
  • Colonial Blvd. West Haven, CT 06516, USA - West Haven
    Colonial Blvd, needs to be made one way on each side. There is not enough room on each side of the street for two way traffic. One side of the street is notoriously busier than the other, that is not fair we all pay the same taxes. I have attached an image of how the one way traffic flow should work on the street. If the police department is not competent enough to see that there is an issue here and make a necessary change, perhaps a signed petition by residents and a formal complaint to he CT. DOT would be in order. In addition,since the weather has gotten nicer there has been an increase in motorcycle traffic and speeders on the street as well. In addition, between 6:45 am and 7:15 during the week a school bus is always speeding southbound down the street. In regards to the blight, it would be much appreciated if the city could spend a little money to clean up the creek and the grounds in the middle of the street, and possibly plant some trees or grass.
  • Brown/Beach Streets West Haven, CT - West Haven
    Can the City please invest and place signs to remind drivers they need to yield to when pedestrians are at cross walks. On any given day I can count 7-15 cars that do not even slow down when I am at a cross walk, heck they barely slow down for STOP signs! It is getting down right dangerous to walk around this town! I watched as my son and his friends waited at a cross walk to get to the bus stop and honestly no one stopped to allow them to cross. People seem to have forgotten common courtsey along with blaten disregard of State laws. Please increase patrols nears bus stops at least! Thanks!

    The picture says it all
  • Savin Rock Trail West Haven, CT 06516, USA - West Haven
    I know this isn't a priority for most, but for those who use the wonderful open spaces along the shore this has been something that needs repair for a long time. The river outlet is an important part of the estuary ecosystem. Many people fish and crab in this river. Even though there is a small path around the fence I was told by a lifeguard that you cannot stand in the bridge because it may collapse??? If its that bad then it's imperative that this is replaced for the safety of people and the vital ecosystem that flows in and out of the river. There must be a way to secure funds to replace this bridge. It's the small projects that will make secure out shoreline as a place of ecological health and growth and that of our own. Please consider this as something important.
  • Beach St West Haven, CT - West Haven
    This is a very hazardous area for walking, and there is no alternative across the street in front of Chick's, where there is no sidewalk and little room for a pedestrian. So pedestrians are forced to share this dangerous road with motorists who flaunt the absence of police patrol of this road (why is this??), and drive in reckless excess of the posted speed limit -- wait, there is NO posted speed limit on this road!. The city KNOWS this is a dangerous area because they put up cones for a charity walk on Sept 18, but then removed the cones at the end of the day. The problem is exacerbated by dangerous driving; east-bound motorists turn onto Beach St from Washington Ave, and then have the long straightaway to accelerate to speeds often exceeding 50mph, with complete impunity, reaching the bend at Morse Ave and often appearing to barely have control of their vehicle as they make the turn...right where pedestrians are now walking. All that's waiting to happen is for one of these motorists to be texting or talking on a cell phone, and for someone, tragically, to be killed or seriously hurt. This is malicious negligence on the part of the city of West Haven, and should something tragic happen, they should be taken to task and to court. There's no reason why they can't put up temporary structures, such as NJ dividers, to create a safe passage for ped's. Of course, there's also no reason why they can't install speed humps on Beach St (such as one finds more and more on streets in New Haven), or some other traffic calming device. And as days shorten, morning walkers are even more endangered, walking in the dark and sometimes in fog, by the long stream of speeding east-bound commuters (often using cell phones, doing their hair, etc.) who use Beach St as an alternative to other east-west roads that slow them down with traffic lights and stop signs.
    Shame on you, West Haven!!
  • 64-88 Dawson Ave West Haven, CT 06516, USA - West Haven
    There are no speed limit signs on the lower half of Dawson Ave near the most dangerous part of the hill. People are constantly traveling at excessive rates of speed both up and down the hill. Can't ticket someone if they don't know what the speed limit is there and/or it's not clearly posted.
  • 35 Prospect Ave West Haven, CT - West Haven

    This home has been vacant for at least six years. There is occasional activity as occasionally people come and put stuff in it (in a minivan RIDDLED with Picard stickers) and takes stuff (childrens bikes, etc) out. I'm really not sure what they do there, my best guess is they're using it for storage.

    On trash day there's always bags outside, even though no one lives there. It would appear that the trash is not being generated at this residence and is being brought from other locations. As is clearly evident in the attached picture, the roof is failing and I have personally witnessed wildlife entering the home. The attached photo is from when this home was put on the market some months ago, but pretty much tells the story. I know for a fact that I am not the first to complain about this property.

    It would be safe to conclude that the owner listed as a "Daniel Rocano" on the vision appraisal site is connected to someone at town hall. Each time a complaint is lodged with town hall in reference to the state of this property, a short time later Daniel/etc show up to do some basic maintenance (lawn mowing/etc) without ever having addressed the real problem. The house is failing, and needs to be examined by building inspectors.

    It is certainly pulling down the values of our homes and provides a very real health hazard to the surrounding homes.

    I am looking into other ways to get some action on this, but figured I would start here.

    If anyone from West Haven Town Hall reads this, please. Please. Do something. We have a great neighborhood. And a lot of wonderful neighbors. Daniel and his dilapidated home are not in standing with the neighborhood, and his lack of consideration has created a potential health hazard for anyone who lives around him.

  • 1-21 Cellini Pl West Haven, CT 06516, USA - West Haven
    Liquor store sells cigs to underage via older people out front. Young give money to older person who then buys the cigs and hands them off to the younger person outside.
  • 54-166 Painter Avenue West Haven, CT 06516, USA - West Haven

    Women's locker room at WHHS pool is filthy, with mold and mildew growing daily. Calls to the school, superintendent, and BOE are ignored- one department refers me to the next department, who sends me back to the first.

    The stone part of the shower walls have not been cleaned for months, the tile portion has black splotches of mildew and globs of old hair from a razor (visibly short hair where someone tapped a razor blade repeatedly on the tiles), that have been in the same spot since before Thanksgiving, the benches and floors under the benches are covered in slime and soap scum. Most of the hooks for towels are gone, so now the only place to put a towel while showering is on top of soap scum and mold. The air vents have a thick layer of grime. The Board of Health should probably close the pool. I will post more photos separately since for some reason this is only letting me put one on here.
