  • 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.
  • 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!
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 322-368 Ocean Avenue West Haven, Connecticut - West Haven
    Back in April 2012, a citizen wrote to Gripe Vine regarding the lack of sidewalks "on either side of Ocean Avenue from Robert Street to Harding Street and it is very dangerous for adults and children walking". The response was that "we're in limbo at this point. If you don't see any activity on this site within a month, let me know and I will start from square one." That was over a year and a half ago, and there has been dead silence and no change. People with baby carriages, those who are in wheelchairs or otherwise require assistance walking, and anyone else who just wants to walk is forced to negotiate lumpy dirt/snow, walk through someone's yard, or walk on Ocean Avenue, where they will probably be hit by a speeding car. Why is it so hard for the City of West Haven to put in what amounts to approximately 100 feet of sidewalk? This complaint has been issued by many people over decades, yet nothing has been done.
  • Ocean Avenue West Haven, Connecticut - West Haven
    Every year around the 4th of July, residents and visitors set off fireworks every night, sometimes for weeks. Most of the fireworks are illegal in CT, yet the Police do nothing to stop them. Dogs are traumatized by the explosions, people can't sleep (as the noise usually goes on until very late at night), and shoreline wildlife is severely disturbed. While I can understand the desire to celebrate, could the celebrations be limited to JULY 4TH ONLY? Also, the WH Police Dept. should be ticketing those with illegal fireworks.

  • Corner Of Thomas St And East Ave West Haven, Connecticut - West Haven
    Between 11pm and 3am, alot of people pulling up to area of side yard gate on Thomas St. near the corner of East St. Someone comes out the gate, waits on the sidewalk, car pulls up, is there for less than one minute speaking with the person then leaves. The person goes back thru the gate and either goes into the house on the corner or the next house in on East St. Savin Rock Community School is diagonally across the street!
