Notified About

  • 242 Front St New Haven, CT 06513 - Chatham Square

    No change, pedestrians walking on Front Street must still watch out for driver coming out of the condos near the intersection of Front with Lewis Street. The drivers are so intent on watching for cars headed north on Freont Street that they do not look at the sidewalk to their right.

    At the same time pedestrians must watch for drivers that do not stop at the Lewis Street and Front street, southern directed stop signs and drivers that do not stop at the badly positioned, north directed Front Street stop sign. A different ticket has been opened on the need for speed bumps or something else to get drivers to at least slowdown at these stop signs,

    This is an over all dangerous intersection that must be re-engineered. In the meanwhile the neighborly thing would be for the condo association to put up a sign to remind their residents to look for pedestrians, particularly children, to the right as they exit the parking lot.

    There is a community playground across the street.

  • 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...
  • Maltby And Grafton New Haven, CT - Chatham Square
    These two, at it again, pulling wheelies up and down Maltby and Clinton
  • 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!
  • 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!
  • 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_
  • 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.

    New traffic signal completely obstructs busy sidewalk & corner, right near school and public park. Difficult for wheelchairs to pass.
