    West Rock Avenue And Westwood Road New Haven, CT - Westville
    Recent reports of dirt bike activity on Westwood Road have gone unheeded. The activity has been reported to the police none emergency number at least two times and the location of the bike and the individual housing it have been reported also. The rider has been seen several times blowing through stop signs. Will this issue be ignored until the rider is injured and some unawares motorist or pedestrian has a really, really bad day? No feed back from the NHPD has been forthcoming.
  • Edgewood Ave New Haven, CT 06515, USA - Westville
    There is the persistent problem of cars speeding on Edgewood Avenue, near the intersections of McKinley and Alston day and night. Chapel street neighbors complained and got a police presence and a device that measures, records, and posts cars' speeds which seems to have helped over the past few weeks. Please come on over to Edgewood near McKinley and help us now!
  • 120 West Rock Avenue New Haven, Connecticut - Westville

    Would it be possible to put a bike rack in by deja bru. There is no good place to lock-up outside this coffee shop.

    Thanks!

  • 101 West Elm Street New Haven, CT 06515, USA - Westville
    If these sidewalks were in better condition, my friend Hanna here would have even more freedom to explore!
  • 737 Edgewood Avenue New Haven, Connecticut - Westville

    The intersection of W Rock Ave and Edgewood Ave is very dangerous. It needs a traffic light or at least a convex mirror to assist drivers. Cars parked along Edgewood Ave block the view of the intersection when going through the intersection from W Rock Ave. This necessitates drivers to encroach half way through the intersection in order to see if there are oncoming cars. This is also a high traffic area because of Edgewood Ave Elementary School. There was a bad wreck at this intersection recently and it is dangerous for children.

    This was posted months ago and no action has been taken.

  • Edgewood Park New Haven, Connecticut - Westville

    Trash everywhere. Dirty diapers littering the ground. Condom wrappers at the playground.

    Until people learn to be good neighbors and clean up after themselves, perhaps the city could send work crews. There most be some juvenile delinquents who have to do court ordered community service who could do this... Or college-bound high school students who need a community service project to work on.

    Also... Step up law enforcement at the parks to fine litterers.

  • 1246 Forest Road New Haven, Connecticut - Westville

    There is a 10 ft tall, 40 foot long hedge infested with poison ivy, here. The hedge is not kept trimmed, so at this point is is making the sidewalk impassible and is a serious health and safety issue. This is a high traffic sidewalk for the local Jewish Community, who walk to temple.

    Trying to reopen this. The Poison Ivy is worse than ever. The property owner is unwilling to do anything.

  • 95 Fountain St New Haven, Connecticut - Westville

    This is a very tricky intersection, and most of it can be attributed to the traffic light. My perspective is one as a pedestrian, often crossing with small children. Nearly every time we attempt to cross Fountain St, there is at least one car (often multiple cars) running through the red light. While the drivers should get some blame (please, police this intersection!!!), the traffic signals deserve some blame. It is a 4-way intersection between Harrison, Alden and Fountain, but Alden and Harrison do not line up with each other. For cars traveling North on Fountain, there are two traffic lights and it is not clear where you are supposed to stop. The second of the traffic lights is almost completely covered by a tree - also a problem. Drivers are often confused if they make it through the first light but see the next one. It is a long drive to make it through the whole intersection.

    This is downright treacherous for pedestrians. You really don't know when it's clear to walk through because so many drivers are confused (or just outright breaking the law). I would suggest a longer yellow light, a clearer sense of where to stop, and patrolling. With multiple churches/temples, a post office, a library, chapel haven and Westville village all within a stones throw, there are many, many pedestrians coming through this intersection. Please make it safer for us!

  • Vista Terrace New Haven, CT - Westville
    The much needed speed bumps on the Vista Terrace cut-through were a welcome sight, but I didn't notice them at first. There are signs on the side of the road, but I think the speed bumps should be painted yellow to make them more visible. The bottom of my car is angry.
  • Mitchell Library New Haven, Connecticut - Westville
    A neighbor was talking about the tool lending libraries in Oakland and Berkley, CA. Would folks be interested in running a similar experiment at Mitchell Library?
