Notified About

  • 709 Townsend Ave New Haven, CT - East Shore

    Reckless, noisy clowns on Quads/ATV's (along with snowmobile's in the winter) have also been riding illegally, plaguing the East Shore section of New Haven for years. Blasting up & down Townsend Ave, tearing up Black Rock Fort area etc.

    Advance warning for NHPD; they go crazy, blaring past the Townsend mansion just about EVERY evening after a snow storm, zig zagging & sliding across the centerline towards oncoming traffic, dangerously passing and cutting off cars etc.

    We want these uninsured deadly missiles stopped!

  • Woodward Avenue East Shore New Haven Ct 06512 - East Shore
    There are NO sidewalks on Woodward Avenue leading to Hannah's Dream, baseball fields & East Shore Park. There is a lot of construction here, why can't these kids get sidewalks to utilize the million dollar projects here?? It's as unsafe as those round a bouts!! UGH! Please help the kids of New Haven be able to use these wonderful parks. THey do no service to the community if the children from local schools & daycares can't access them safely. It's impossiable to walk thru the swampgrass without knee high boots on! The construction trucks have been there daily for a year-throw in some sidewalks!
  • 820 Townsend Ave New Haven, CT 06512 - East Shore
    Cars on Townsend speed all day and night long, as do SCHOOL BUSES and CT TRANSIT
  • 486 Townsend Ave New Haven, CT 06512 - East Shore
    Cars ignore the crosswalk
  • SNOWED IN Archived
    Hervey Street At Kneeland New Haven, CT - East Shore
    This area has not been plowed, since BEFORE THE STORM. Then nothing for 2 DAYS. This is unacceptable. It stopped snowing Saturday around 8am and it is Sunday 1pm and we are still snowed in with no sign of street plows. My kids need to go to school tomorrow, how long is this going to take???
  • East Shore Park New Haven, CT - East Shore
    There is an unused parking lot/section of East Shore Park behind the basketball courts that would be ideal for a skatepark. Edgewood shouldn't be the only go-to park in the city for kids who skateboard or ride BMX's. It's a perfect location for this, and the city should see if they can get someone to underwrite it. If Westville can have one, East Shore Park--which is used by thousands of people every day for baseball, basketball, volleyball, soccer, tennis, bike-riding, walking and running--should, too.
  • 2-46 Hervey St New Haven, CT 06512, USA - East Shore
    Cars are flying through the stop sign at the corner of Hervey and Kneeland and I don't think they realize that its only a two way stop sign. There is going to be a major accident there one day. There are lots of kids that play outside and people walking their dogs.
  • 450 Townsend Ave New Haven, CT 06512, USA - East Shore
    Cars, trucks and busses NEVER yield to pedestrians in crosswalk. What makes it even more dangerous is when one side of traffic stops and the other doesn't. A large "YIELD TO PEDESTRIANS" sign is urgently needed IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ROAD. Having a crossing guard during school hours IS NOT ENOUGH. Townsend Ave has become a speedway.
  • 119 Fort Hale Road New Haven, Connecticut - East Shore
    We really need to have a 4 way stop sign on the corner of Hervey and Kneeland. It is becoming very dangerous. At least once a month a car goes through the stop sign on Hervey thinking that I have a stop sign coming from Kneeland. I don't. I once had to swerve off the road to avoid a car. Every corner on Kneeland has a stop sign accept this corner. Please don't wait until someone seriously gets injured to enforce this.
  • 8 Hall Street New Haven, CT - East Shore
    It seems that it is illegal in the zoning code to store items outside in a front or side yard in a residential zone. It definitely illegal to sell items like cars boats and the like in your front or side yard in a residential zone, especially when the item does not belong to you. I hope Linda in LCI will resolve this.
  • Parks Request Archived
    202-274 Woodward Avenue New Haven, CT 06512, USA - East Shore

    1.) Broken playground equipment and inordinate amount of trash on the playground.
    The ride-on toy in the toddler area is now laying on the ground, 100% broken. This needs to be removed or repaired as it poses a risk for curious toddlers.

    Also: tire swing is gone.

    2.) Next to that spot lies a used condom wrapper and nearby, the condom (used) itself. I can tolerate some trash at playgrounds as I understand the Parks Department has a lot in their plate. The amount of trash there today however, was staggering. Abandoned drinks were everywhere- another temptation for a curious toddler who came within seconds of sampling a neon-green liquid. There are wrappers and trash everywhere.
    Parking lot trash cans are overflowing with beer boxes, etc. Maybe more monitoring of the park after-hours is needed?

    3.) I came after 10am and the park gate was still locked.

    4.) port-a-potty : awful.

    This was not a good place to bring a small child this morning.

    SAFER CROSS WALK FOR OUR CHILDREN?

    According to Chuck Harlow’s office at The State Department of Transportation, The City of New Haven was approved to install a flashing yellow light in front of Nathan Hale School that turned red when a pedestrian wanted to cross. This was conditional that the City of New Haven pay for the price of the construction.
