    155/153 Lombard St New Haven, Connecticut - Chatham Square

    The issues are blight and vermin. 155/153 Lombard St has absentee landlords who are allowing their property to deteriorate. Racoons and squirrels have been seen coming in and out of the house, where they have built nests, causing health and safety issues. The shingles are falling off the house making it not only unsightly, but attracting vermin to make nests.

    These issues are reducing the value of my home and the properties of owner occupied single and multifamily homes as well as any absentee landlord who might be taking good care of their properties.

    I work with Chatham Square Neighborhood Association, and am on the EDC of said organization. Several members of this organization and I have formed Fair Haven Forward. We are trying to make this neighborhood one where people will want to come visit, shop, live and work. But houses like this will keep good people away. Tenants and home buyers will look elsewhere. I know I wish I did! But I was told this problem was being resolved. Instead it has gotten worse.

  • 181 Front Street New Haven, Connecticut - Chatham Square
    upwards of 40 dirtbikes/ATV flying down Lewis Street, on to Front Street, right by 20 children at the park. They find strength in numbers, too cowardly to try to terrorize children on their own. So tired of this game...
  • 244-276 Front St New Haven, CT 06513, USA - Chatham Square
    Profane graffiti on jungle gym at park. Some graffiti references gangs. Please remove ASAP!
  • Hazardous crosswalk Acknowledged
    254 Front St New Haven, CT 06513 - Chatham Square
    The crosswalk at Lewis St Park has no ADA curb cut on the Oyster Cove Condo side. Pushing a baby carriage, one is forced to walk into oncoming traffic that doesn't stop at the stop sign at Lewis and Front as one maneuvers to make the driveway curb cut at the Oyster Cove active driveway.
  • Downing Street New Haven, CT - Chatham Square
    Downing Street and many of the side streets in Fair Haven have become a mecca for excessive speed and racing. I saw a driver go down Downing Street going about 100 miles per hour early this evening. Moments after he blew through the intersection of Downing and Chatham headed northbound, a man with a child in a carrier on the back of his bike crossed this same intersection. Please, NHPD, take notice. This is incredibly dangerous!
  • Poplar St And Chatham St New Haven, Connecticut - Fair Haven
    At approximately 6:40pm this evening, an individual operating a yellow four wheeler headed north on Poplar Street towards the intersection with Lombard. Individual was dark skinned, wearing a white cloth head & face covering and was doing wheelies up the street. Attaching picture of bebz_691; rider & vehicle looked identical to this, which was also taken today and posted on Instagram by _cirocboy_
  • Maltby And Grafton New Haven, CT - Chatham Square
    These two, at it again, pulling wheelies up and down Maltby and Clinton
  • Parks Request Acknowledged
    101-123 E Pearl St New Haven, CT 06513, USA - Chatham Square
    Great location for a Fair Haven dog park. I'll upload a video as well and try to do quick research on who owns the property and associated parking lot.
  • 25 James Street New Haven, CT 06513, USA - Fair Haven
    Transformer for new traffic signal placed right at bus stop and right near front door of school. Obstructs school bus stops! Sidewalk completely crowded with old and new traffic signal equipment.
  • 100 John W Murphy Drive New Haven, Connecticut - Fair Haven

    In my exploration of the surrounding area I found a nice but neglected right of way from John Murphy Drive to the Mill River. At the end there is a path that runs behind your building and has some nice park benches. I am interested in we can spruce up this right of way and river path. In particular I think it could be quite nice to figure out a way to make it a loop so that people could walk it on lunch breaks. In the overgrown right of way I wonder what sort of landscaping could improve the look and ease of maintaining. There are some aspects of it that seem suitable to a small garden running alongside the trail.

  • Ferry St New Haven, CT - Fair Haven
    I notice most of new haven is clean , Fair Haven is Heavily littered by its residents , if department of public works can do a bit more in this community to keep the streets and parks clean everything would look more like the rest of new haven.
