New Haven, Beaver Hills, resident
205 Temple St New Haven, CT - Town_Green
Just today, I had bought a beverage from the convenience store on Temple Street downtown, and headed on over to the green to eat my lunch out in the beautiful day. When I was finished, I scanned the area on the street for a place to recycle my empty bottle, realizing that recycling wasn't possible.
My idea is that Public Works should estimate the percentage of trash that is bottles and cans around that area, that can be recycled. If the amount is great enough, perhaps a study for a design for new recycling bins downtown should be produced.
Please vote on the issue!

259 State Street New Haven, CT - Downtown
Since its opening in 2002, the New Haven State Street Train Station has served downtown New Haven in only a limited capacity and largely serves as a Shoreline East terminus for CT Commuter Rail. Metro-North trains only serve the station on a limited morning and evening basis, with no midday trains to or from Grand Central between 10am and 3:30pm, no trains arriving or departing after 6pm, and no weekend trains.
The New Haven State Street Station is ideally located in downtown New Haven to serve the neighborhoods of Wooster Square and Downtown, which have seen significant increases in population in recent years. With the completion of the 360 State project, there are now also 500 public parking spaces available in a vibrant urban center directly across from the station, making it all the more accessible to commuters.
With residential capacity higher than ever surrounding the station, and a growing demand for more public transportation options, it is time to bring Metro-North full service to New Haven State Street Station.

Animal Control does not answer the phone and the police said to call animal Control. Mailbox of Animal Control officer filled so I called my Alderman to see if he could help. Went looking for police officer on Whitney, none to be found.
Humphrey Street Between State And Orange. - SOHULoud motorcycles frequently speed down Humphrey Street, breaking both the speed limits and the municipal noise ordinance. Some are coming from the bars on State Street/Humphrey Street. Others are getting off I-91 and speed down Humphrey on their way downtown.
Entrance To Front St Off Middletown Ave - Chatham SquareThe entrance to Front Street from Middletown Ave/Rt 80 is a dump. It is an underpass filled with weeds, garbage, tags. It is dark, always, making it dangerous. And the fence, allowing anyone access to the river, is broken in several places. Isn't this DOT's responsibility? And what does this entrance say about our neighborhood - one which we are trying to revitalize... The new Q terrace looks great, but it is adjacent to a dump.
140-180 Concord Street New Haven, Connecticut - East Shore
Several young belligerents, one of which is masked, ride along Concord on their street illegal dirt bikes at high speeds. They do this several times a day, often times at night, and have shouted threats and obscenities at various people. Today, they rode on someone's property and revved their engines, gauging the grass.
The cops have been called several times without response and this is disgusting. What is needed to get a police response in this city? Is a felony the only thing that warrants attention?
Bradley At State New Haven, CT - Downtown
Help us make the Bradley/State Intersection safe!
In April 2012 we submitted a New Haven Complete Streets project request to improve the safety of motorists, pedestrians, and bicyclists at the intersection of Bradley and State (attached).
This application requested bump-outs to improve visibility on State Street at Bradley Street -- or a traffic light.
The Engineering Department of the City replied that our problem would be assessed by “ . . . verification of speeds and volumes on the road, traffic accident data and a physical review of the road and its context within the neighborhood.”
This measure alone will not illustrate how difficult and dangerous it is to exit Bradley. We need you to document your experiences with this intersection in the comments below.
Thank you for supporting the application, and safer streets for all.
Whalley Avenue George Street, Norton Street, Edgewood Avenue, Sherman Avenue - Everywhere in New Haven - DowntownThis problem is increasing and dispersing itself across New Haven. I went to KFC a couple of days ago and noticed some teenagers loitering in the the restaurant. The workers seemed upset and noticed that not only were the teenagers loitering, but were also insulting customers, being obnoxious and basically driving customers away. When I left the restaurant, I noticed that the problem was not secluded to the restaurant but its a problem everywhere. These teens are standing by corners at late hours and blatantly loitering everywhere. Just recently I watched as a youth was arrested for standing in the middle of the street, throwing empty bottles at cars driving pass. It's really getting out of hand and I'm tired of not wanting to take my children anywhere because of it. It's not fair. I pay my taxes, I work, I take of my children and I'm not depending on anyone but myself.
Even when the police stops and tells them to disperse, they simply move to another corner. I've watched as they laugh at police. Most of them have no respect or decency. The cornerstore near my home had to close because of the same reason, the endless loitering and chaos. Also, the shop was robbed repeated by "boosters". I think there should be a curfew for these teens. It's unfortunate but I think that's what it comes down to. For those who are trying to better themselves, I think if there's a curfew, they should have documents from their jobs or schools to prove why they are walking home after 7pm, or something like that. I can't even let my son ride his bike to his friend's house, which is only a block away because my neighbor's ten year old son was robbed by a group of teenagers roaming the street. They took his bike and the milk he went to the store to purchase for his mother. It's not right and it needs to end.
I think arresting them is not enough, people say blame the parents, then maybe the police should start giving the parents tickets too to send the point home.

In summer 2012, the Amtrak 2040 New York City to Boston high speed rail plan was revised to include a connection to Providence R.I..
However, the route still bypasses Stamford, Bridgeport, and New Haven in favor of a route through Danbury.
For the latest reports, please see
Amtrak's high speed rail system from New York City to Boston should not bypass Connecticut's most economically vibrant cities. Additionally, adding a high speed route through Upstate New York and Danbury, instead of through an area that already has a large amount of existing urban infrastructure, would create more development pressure in environmentally sensitive areas.
We should be focusing our nation's infrastructure investments into our most sustainable, economically competitive urban centers, not into "green fields."
By point of comparison, the planned high speed rail route from Washington DC to NYC passes through the urban centers of Baltimore, Philadelphia, Wilmington, and Newark -- not through rural and semi-rural areas.
210 Willow St New Haven, CT 06511 - East RockFormerly a dry cleaning business, the building is in extremely unsafe condition: leaking roof, broken windows, rotting floor, rear door unsecured. There is old dry cleaning equipment, probably dry cleaning chemical contamination and waste, asbestos from a rusting boiler, and the building's foundation is rotten and open to the elements creating a rodent problem and allowing rainwater to enter and possibly contaminate groundwater and the surrounding soil with pollutants.
