  • 12 S. Cliff St Ansonia, Connecticut - Ansonia
    Yesterday my trash and recycling were thrown in the same truck. If winter Bros. can throw both in the same truck why am I bothering to rinse and separate. Everyone should be appalled at this. Let's start taking pictures. I'm sure we pay them to do both pick ups separately.

    In postion to dodge current blight laws developed by your town in the valley? You have to admit the visual on these buildings look far worse than the River Side Apartments making state news for removal. We were eating in your town one evening and decided to take a walk after dinner prior to driving out of town and back home. I in sandals managed to get my foot scraped by broken glass from debris from one of these buildings.
    See attached pics by way of what everyone on the world-wide-web is seeing post-carded as one of your city focal points.

  • Weybosset St Shelton, CT 06484, USA - Shelton
    These people need to park their cars in their driveways, not on the street, the road is only passable by one car, I would hate to see what would happen if fire engines needed to come down.

  • City Website Archived
    253 Main Street Ansonia, Connecticut - Ansonia
    This administration takes way too long to post the minutes from the monthly meetings. Here we are at the end of April and we still do not have the minutes posted from this month's Aldermen's meeting which takes place on the 2nd Tuesday of every month. In addition, the links to the minutes that do exist should be made easier to read/clarified.
  • 548 Main Street Ansonia, CT - Ansonia

    This seems to be the best place to report problems or questions and others can chime in.

    I don't often drive to downtown Ansonia but I had to this morning for an appointment. I was amazed to see this burned out commercial building STILL standing and not repaired. Wasn't it pretty much destroyed YEARS ago?

    I found this photo online (it's a little dated) and the address so I am sorry if I have the number wrong but I'm sure it's well known and the building pretty much looks the same except the plywood on the windows has been painted red.. as if this was to improve it.

    It also had a sign in front of it last fall that I see is still there "NEW STORES COMING". Really!? What new stores? What leases are signed? When is construction beginning?

    Is the City of Ansonia does not consider this blight that needs immediate attention (ie: tear down the building or complete the renovations the signage promises) than I don't know what is.

    This is how we want people welcomes to downtown? Not that the vacant Healey Ford building doesn't need attention pronto also, but it's not this bad.

  • 180 Center St Shelton, CT 06484 - Shelton
    Oak Ave, Perry Hill Rd., Center St., and Bridgeport Ave., all converge at one intersection. Many times cars coming down Perry Hill Rd., ignore the stop sign and blow through the intersection. Many times I am waiting at the stop sign to turn onto Briegeport ave., and when I can finally turn safely, a vehile will come down Perry Hill Rd., and cut me off. I have been almost hit several times. A traffice light, with no turn on red, needs to be placed at that intersecion,
  • Corner Of Hull And Wakelee Ansonia, Connecticut - Ansonia
    If your pulling out of Hull street to take a left turn on to Wakelee, you can look right and there is a refrigerator size ATT phone connection box mounted to the base of the telephone pole. The view of on coming cars are block for 1 to 3 seconds. I look to the left and then the right, see no cars, start to pull out to make a left turn and then see that there was a car coming from my right.
  • Pershing Drive Ansonia, CT - Ansonia

    I can't say this is an "issue" but I can't find a single work in the media (online or off) about what is about to happen at the corner of Pershing and Division in Ansonia. This would be the entire around AROUND Cumberland Farms.

    I noted a construction fence had been put up around the house and storefront across from CVS where "Bell and Beep" used to be located. It appears there are plans to take down that properly. That is normally what such fences are put up for.

    I then spotted this same fence now wraps around the house on Division Street that sits on the hill right behind Cumberland Farms. Both homes appear to be vacant and in poor condition so I trust this means both properties are being torn down by someone, for something.

    Of course, this raises the question of Cumberland Farms. How one demolishes a home behind and next to CF without effecting that business or how on earth you would build another new business WRAPPING AROUND Cumberland Farms escapes me.

    I see nothing about an application for demolition, an approved new construction project, etc. I love when the media "skips" stories like this.

    Can anyone shed light on what is going on?
